VAUXHALL VICTOR FB 1508 CC Model: Deluxe Saloon Colour: Cavern Green Year: 1961 Owner – Kelvin Webb This car has been in the family from new, I was 9 when I went with my Grandfather to pick it up from the Vauxhall Showroom in Cheltenham. My Grandfather named her Betsy and this name has carried on to this day. She was fully restored in 1989 when we moved to North Wales to live. New Victors appeared in 1961 – the FB models, in Standard, Super, De Luxe and Estate Cars variants. A little later came an extra-performance version, the VX 4/90. The FB models ran through to 1964 with few changes, though engine size did go up in 1963 from 1508 to 1594. No fewer than 328,600 FB models were produced. To buy this model in 1961 would have cost £580 + £267.1.5 P.T. (£847.1.5).
