1934 Vauxhall Light Six ASY

No Reserve

Direct from Vauxhall Motors Heritage Collection; older restoration in very nice condition apart from the engine which is loosely assembled following bearing failure; an easy project for the home mechanic

The early 1930s saw the rise in popularity of the small-capacity six. The punitive RAC tax system favoured this layout and they offered a degree of sophistication hitherto unavailable to the British motorist with just a little bit more in their pockets.

Vauxhall were ahead of the game in this area, General Motor's experience with its world-beating 'cast iron wonder' six-cylinder engine ensuring the development of a new range of British-built Vauxhall Six' models was an obvious choice. Offered in 12/6 and 14/6 form, they sold well and had many quality features such as synchromesh, a fully balanced crankshaft with damper, servo brakes and leather upholstery.

This very nice ASY Light-Six spent much of its life in Cheltenham, a letter dated 1992 from a previous long term owner stating that they sold it in around 1964. It joined Vauxhall's Public Affairs department in 1992 and was last MOTd in 1999 as far as we can make out.

Clearly restored some time ago, the fit and finish is impressive and the car appears in excellent condition apart from the engine (the easy bit!) which we understand encountered some bearing problems some time ago. It was dismantled for inspection and has been loosely assembled for the sale.

Complete with old style log book, letters from a previous owner, original advert and some copy road tests, the car retains lots of nice features such as the rear Vauxhall badge, side mounted spare and its original leather upholstery and as with all the vehicles from the Heritage Collection, is offered at No Reserve.
