Vauxhall Victor FD Estate – Stunning Example

The FD Victor was a radical departure by the Vauxhall design team from the FC and was launched at the UK Motor Show in 1967 where it was voted the "Car of the Show". The FD came with a new engine available with 1600cc or 2000cc capacities, optional four-speed floor change gearbox, high specification interior and transatlantic "coke bottle" styling borrowed from Chevrolet that wowed press and public alike.

Sales were strong but corrosion and poor maintenance back in the day means that few FD's have survived and the workhorse estate option is the rarest of them all.

At Milestones we are always looking for outstanding cars with good providence and sadly still get very excited when we market an exceptional car like this FD. The Estate is well known in the owners club with just 6 previous owners including two active club members -one like it so much he has owned her twice - and we have sold the car twice previously to our decerning customers.

Paul Alsop, an Engineer at the Motor Museum Coventry bought the car in 2005 from the original keeper, a local car close to his home. It had been dry stored for around twelve years and Paul completed an engine overhaul and a light body work restoration including the front inner and outer wings which were professionally replaced with new old stock original Vauxhall panels.

Paul completed the recommissioning/ respray (cellulose) in 2006 and the car featured on the club stand at the NEC Classic Motor show that year alongside a low mileage 1968 Saloon. Paul sold her to a fellow enthusiast based in Ireland shortly afterwards but, as often happens with exceptional cars, he bought her back in 2011.

Paul sold the car again to Jason Callear (May 2016) a leading and ex-committee member of the renowned FD Register. Jason owned the FD jointly with his dad. They bought the FD together because, his Grandad and Dad had an identical car back in the day and she has been lovingly cherished amongst other similar classic Vauxhalls from the era in there private collection. We sold the car last year to a regular customer who has now part exchanged the Victor for another Milestones car.

Today the FD is almost certainly the best you will find and an absolute delight to drive.

Perfect for days out with the family + picnic basket stowed in the back, Goodwood Revival or even film work where she would make a steady income - we recommend viewing in order to fully appreciate this remarkable classic.
