Vauxhall Cresta (1954-1972)
The Vauxhall Cresta was from 1954 to 1972. The Cresta was introduced in 1954 as an upmarket version of the Vauxhall Velox, itself a six-cylinder version of the Vauxhall Wyvern. The Cresta models were the E (1954–1957), PA (1957–1962), PB (1962–1965) and PC (1965–1972). The Viscount (1966–1972) was an upmarket Cresta PC.
The US-styling of the 1958 Vauxhall Cresta was quite a shock (as were the colour schemes), nevertheless 1958 was a record year for Vauxhall, with 114,117 cars sold.
