Footnotes

  • A charmingly original example of Vauxhall's flagship sports saloon, this VX 4/90 wears its believed original paint and retains its original valve radio set. Described as running well but in need of some gentle recommissioning following a period of storage. It is a lovely honest example of the top of the range saloon offered by Vauxhall at the time. Running and driving it will need some recommissioning prior to active use following a period of storage.
