1961-1964 VAUXHALL Victor FB specifications


More restrained and sensible styling marked the 1961-64 FB Victor incarnation, albeit still with leanings across the Atlantic. But the new look was neat, handsome and inoffensive and helped make this mid-sized family car one of Vauxhall’s big successes of the 1960s. Four-door saloons and five-door estates were available, with the first cars (1961-63) sporting the same 1507cc engine as the F-type, but those from September 1963 until the end of production had a 1595cc engine of 58.5bbhp, when front disc brakes were also adopted. 328,640 were built up until 1964.
