Vauxhall Cars 1945-1964 narrates the remarkable story of Vauxhall Motors post-war years.
Originally manufacturers of marine engines, the Vauxhall Iron Works were established on the South bank of the River Thames in 1867 and after troubled times at the end of the 19th-century, the firm commenced motor manufacturing in 1903. This was to be the start of the company’s phenomenal success story, which was to expand rapidly two years later when the company moved to a new purpose-built factory at Luton in Bedfordshire.
In the two decades after World War II, as Britain began to rebuild itself, Vauxhall made some of their most classic models. By introducing the L-Type, E-Type, PA-Type, and HA Viva through to the FB Victor and PC Cresta, Vauxhall established itself as one of the world’s most respected car manufacturers.
