    1960 Vauxhall PA Velox Project ***NOW SOLD***

    Here we have my 1960 Vauxhall PA Velox.

    To get a feel for the car there is write ups on the following links...

    Cherished Vehicle Insurance Blog

    The Voodoo Velox | Cherished Vehicle Insurance

    Rods N Sods Build Thread

    Probably getting a bit boring for people now but it needs to be sold to pave way for the future, a, house!! Im sure im not the first person to be in these shoes and probably wont be the last.

    Anyway this is where it is at current.

    It is still an unfinished project.

    It is being advertised, complete minus engine and box.

    The rear axle is Volvo 240, It is a 3:91 ratio with disc brakes and 15 inch Volvo steel wheels. The original Velox Axle is available if you would prefer that.

    The exterior body panels are as straight as I could get them. When I purchased the Velox it had already been nosed, decked, and had side trim removed and trim holes smoothed.

    Each panel has been smoothed, Etch Primed and filler primered and flatted off many times to the best of my ability.

    Will need to be gone over due to storage as surface rust has appeared in places. Wont be hard for one of you guys.

    Current photos of exterior...
















































    The steering column has been modified to take the bottom shaft and spline to mate into Cortina UJ and Cortina rack and pinion.

    needs finishing off with a new column mount.



    Steering has been dropped 2.5 Inch






    Transmission tunnel has been welded up to except bigger transmission and engine such as the 904 and 318 i was destined to put in.








    Loads more on next post....please look below

    1960 Vauxhall PA Velox project reduced to £1750ono

    Rear Floorpans







    Examples of inside of doors.

    Rears had exterior handles shaved and fitted with poppers.














    Seats and Doorcards

























    Some more of the parts









    The headlining













    The Boot area - pull popper operated by cable operated lever in rear parcel shelf.














    The engine bay to accept Small block Mopar.




















    Can easily be put back to normal by someone whos a dab hand with metal.

    Battery tray has also been retained to put back if you so wish.









    Front axle is a modified PA unit that has PA Disc brakes and running on 15 inch Austin Steel wheels.

    I do have a standard PA Front crossmember available to put back to standard.



    Its running a brand new Mk5 Cortina steering rack which has been fully polybushed.

    Tracking and track adjuster bars will need to be finished.





    Some photos around car showing outside sills, door bottoms, interior arches.










































    Hopefully thats enough photos?? LOL!!



    Alot of work has gone into this. Yep its not running or tested but its straight with no rot barr a little minor issue of surface rust. Something that can eaily be remedied.



    It does come with all trim, bumpers and chrome to put exterior back to standard. All of the interior is present and correct their is a little tear in the front seat but i intended to put a blanket over it.




    All wiring is present and correct.




    All in all it needs:



    Engine and box...Worlds your oyster!

    The Paint finishing

    Steering column and steering tracking finishing
    Brakes finishing

    Wiring finishing

    an MOT and your away!!



    Sounds easy when you say it like that but really, if you have the time and a house already that you dont need to find the money for and lusting after a little project?? Seriously this is for you!!



    In an ideal world, due its rarity being in this solid condition and its Registration value of £800.

    I was looking for £2500

    Im a realist and am open to offers...just ask!!


    Please note car is in Biddulph Stoke on Trent!!


    I do have many other things for sale on this thread:
