1962-1965 VAUXHALL Velox/Cresta PB


Overview

Vauxhall toned things down for the 1962-65 PB generation of Velox and Cresta. There was still a US influence and imposing size, but with a more UK flavour overall. Front disc brakes were standard but the traditional three-speed column-mounted transmission persisted; there was also a three-speed Hydramatic automatic which changed to a two-speed Powerglide in 1965. Futuristic names were then all the rage of course. Initially, the 2651cc six-cylinder engine was carried over from the PA, but this jumped to 3294cc in 1964, the 115bhp providing a much-needed shot of adrenalin.
