1961 Vauxhall PA Cresta SOLD

1961 Vauxhall PA Cresta. The PA Cresta, announced 2 October 1957 is probably the best-known version. It mimicked the American fashion for tail-fins, wrap-around windows and white-wall tyres, taking its cues from the 1957 model Buick Special announced twelve months before the Cresta, though understated compared to the Cadillacs and Buicks of the time. All factory-built PAs were four-door saloons: the estate cars were converted by Friary of Basingstoke, Hampshire and are rare today. The PA Cresta had independent front suspension using coil springs and an anti-roll bar with a rigid axle and semi-elliptic leaf springs at the rear. The Lockheed brakes used 9 in (230 mm) drums all round. Carried over from the last of the E series cars, the 2,262 cc six-cylinder engine had pushrod-operated overhead valves and a compression ratio of 7.8:1 (a low compression 6.8:1 version was available); it produced 82.5 bhp (61.5 kW) at 4,400 rpm. A single Zenith carburettor was used. The transmission had three forward speeds. It was well equipped with leather and nylon upholstery for its bench front and rear seats and woven pile carpet. A heater was fitted as standard. The radio remained an option on the home market. Other options included fog lamps, reversing light, locking filler cap and external mirrors. In order to keep the front floor clear to seat six people the handbrake lever was mounted under the dashboard and the gearchange lever was column mounted. The car could be ordered painted in either single or two tone colours.This Cresta was subject to an extensive restoration and has formed part of a private collection since 2001. The restoration was undertaken over a ten year period including the body underside and engine overhaul. The car has had three keepers from new, the first owner for forty years. Although MoT exempt, a fresh MOT willbe applied upon sale. The history file comes with some restoration photos, supporting invoices, magazine articles and MoTs dating from 2001, 2004, 2006 to present. The mileage is recorded at 59,000. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Please visit our Website, find us on Facebook and like us on Instagram or just feel free to email or call us.
