VAUXHALL CADET VY/VX

2-seater, tourer, saloon, 2-light fixed-head coupé, 2-seater drophead coupé, convertible saloon.

Unadulterated GM at last, although Chevies never had four bearing pressure fed crankshafts, and wire wheels were standard. Wheelbase was 107ins, and synchro came in on the three-speed 'box from '32 - Britain's first car to do so. '32s had plated hubcaps, '33s came with streamlined forepeaks and dull chrome stoneguards. Martin Walter and Tickford the main suppliers of factory custom body styles.
