Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1920 Vauxhall 30-98 E-type Velox Tourer For Sale.
This well sought after 30/98 known as a gentleman’s fast touring car which is known as being one of the fastest and cars of it’s era, with the handling qualities to match. Each model was delivered with a guarantee that it could achieve 100mph in stripped form.
The early post first World War 30-98 bodies are arguably the prettiest and most appealing of all 30/98s, with the side valve E-type engine, the car sitting on beaded edge wheels & tyres.
A no expenses spared restoration was undertaken by the previous owner who ordered a ground up concours with every aspect of the car being fettled to the highest standards.
The trim work was sent to the renowned James Pearce, he fabricated the complete interior and even sent a letter to the owner stating how happy he personally was with the work.
This charming Vauxhall also comes equipped with a full tonneau which can also be used as a half or ¾ section for solo driving.
The body and chassis restoration was completed by well know Vauxhall restorers Alistair Templeton and Julian Ghosh who completed their work to concours standards, this is easily shown by the smooth lines of the body and the paint finish which has lasted 17 years so far and is still holding up to a higher standard than many fresh restorations.
The engine rebuild was entrusted to marque specialist Phil Hill who has vast experience with rebuilding pre-war Vauxhall engines. Along with the correct 3:1 ratio rear axle the engine was fully rebuild to original specification.
This is a great opportunity to own a VSCC approved 1920’s car which is eligible to all events including, sprints, races, rallies, trials and of course hill climbs which thanks to the 30-98s torque are completed effortlessly and there’s no need to panic coming back down as thoughtfully this Vauxhall is fitted with larger 16’ finned ‘Alfin type’ rear drum brakes.
We can proudly say that this iconic British car is sitting in our showroom in fine order and ready for viewing.
