This is a very rare car, and certainly the first Vauxhall Victor Estate we have owned over the past 25 years. Adding to the rarity value, this wonderful time warp has only covered 45100 miles and comes with its original manuals, handbooks, brochure, original colour chart, spare keys and service book. Adding to that, the Vauxhall is supplied in its original colours, original specification and has had just a handful of owners.
SPH 387M was supplied new by B J Baker Motors Limited, London Street, Chertsey on the 1st August 1973 and the original service book has been stamped by the supplying dealer for its pre delivery check, first month check on the 6th September 1973 and the cars first service on the 25th July 1974 at 5154 miles. Various tax discs show the Victor Estate was in use during the early 1980's and by 1985 the car had covered 26622 miles. From 1986 to 1997 the Vauxhall was unused and from 1997 to 2005 covered just 90 miles.
In June 2005 the Victor sold to an owner in the Dulwich Park area of London who began to use and enjoy the car. In early 2005 the cambelt was changed and the car serviced, and from 2005 to 2014 Blackheath Motor Services in Greenwich maintained the car. The car was treated to new tyres, a stainless steel exhaust and various servicing and maintenance on an annual basis. Since 2005 18500 miles have been covered in the Vauxhall and its has arrived with a mileage recorded at 45100 miles.
SPH 387M is a genuine time warp, the car is so honest, original and lovely throughout. Structurally this rare Estate car is excellent, its clearly never had much exposure to salt on the roads and there are no signs of major repairs. The body is lovely and straight, paintwork is aged, honest but well presented and the interior just glorious and original. The 2.3 litre engine is unbelievably sweet, it sounds superb, ticks over perfectly and is lovely and quiet as you would expect with the low mileage. Its fantastic to drive, a proven reliable classic Estate car that you just don't see. This is a rare chance to acquire a low mileage, genuine and original Victor Estate that's ready to go.
