VAUXHALL PA VELOX/CRESTA

Saloon, estate car.

Revised sixes with an extra 1 1/2ins of wheelbase, hydraulic clutch, all-synchro 'box, and a '57 American shape with dog's leg screen and tailfins, though the awful three-piece rear window goes for 1960, when new curved-top grille introduced. Cresta has usual luxury extra equipment; estate cars from '59. Good performers if you can appreciate the looks.
