VAUXHALL VIVA/VIVA90/VIVA 1600 HB

2-door/4-door 4-seater saloon, 2-door estate.

Smart, popular and successful second generation Viva, with well-liked 'Coke -bottle' waistline style. Simple monocoque and chassis engineering, with big engine option from mid '68, and optional automatic on all types from '67, 90 derivative had 60bhp and 85mph top speed, 1600 had 83bhp giving perhaps 90/95mph. Four-door saloons from late '68. All worthy but unexciting.
