1957 Vauxhall Victor F

Whilst it was a delight to see this 1957 Vauxhall Victor F at DMG last week, it was not here for any parts. The owner recently purchased a Humber Sceptre and is completing a renovation using David Manners Group parts where possible.

Still, we had to go and take a look. My first thought was the resemblance of a scaled down version of the American Plymouth Fury – See Stephen King’s Christine for reference. The absence of the Fury’s prominent wings on the Victor F is a clear differential and the cockpit is much smaller than you would imagine. Infact, for such a large (outwardly at least) car, the inside appears quite small with minimal passenger space.

The plate at the front proudly displays its appearance on the London to Brighton run a couple of years ago. For a car that is 54 years old, you may be surprised to learn it is still used as a main car with regular trips around the UK, more recently on holiday to Blackpool.

Certainly a key element to the continued running of the Vauxhall Victor is the way it’s looked after.

1965 Morris Minor 1000 at the David Manners Group

When you own a car for over 25 years, it certainly becomes part of the family. This is the case with this well looked after Morris Minor 1000. The 1000 is one of the most popular cars to visit us at the David Manners Group and the majority of them are daily runners kept in excellent condition.

But you can’t expect to run a classic on a daily basis without expecting the odd mechanic or parts bill. As our customer explained, the floor has been completely overhauled to fix a rust problem that had manifested itself causing problems elsewhere. With this work complete, the next step was to undertake a complete service and fix those niggling parts that you never seem to get around to. As you can see from the pictures, the obvious 2 include the absence of a wing mirror and a headlamp rim.

Despite the rust problem, the outer body work is sound and the colour is still vibrant and pleasing on the eye. Our customer is the 3rd owner of this Morris Minor and he knows it has always been cared for as he has a full service history available. The car has covered over 130,000 miles with 7000 of those in the last few years.

1964 Hillman Super Minx

You could consider the Hillman Super Minx as somewhat of an endangered species. DVLA figures show there are just over 200 of these left on British Roads, only a slight decrease from the last 10 years. Nevertheless, it is still a rare and pleasurable site to see them.

Our Minx customer had just fitted the boot rack after purchasing it from us a few days earlier so it was an opportune moment to take pictures. The chrome boot rack compliments the immaculate paint work and new convertible hood perfectly.

This Hillman Super Minx’s year of registration is 1964 so it no longer covers the miles it used to. It was recently the subject of a restoration with the majority of parts purchased from the David Manners Group. Now it is back on the road, it enjoys weekly outings with very few problems.

The boot rack is a universal fitting, particularly common with MGB cars and Morris Minors. This is the first time we have seen one for the Minx. Many parts for the Hillman Super Minx are interchangeable with our MG and Triumph range.
