Vauxhall - Vauxhall Victor

The Vauxhall Victor name was first used in 1957 on a very American styled car, with typical US styled windscreen and many other features. Even the exhaust pipe exited through the rear bumper. The Victor used the four cylinder 1507cc engine of the Wyvern model it replaced, but with more power extracted from it. For 1959 the front grille was simplified, while for 1961 the FB series of Victor was totally redesigned and disc brakes for 1963, with an option of 14 inch wheels. The sportier VX4/90 version had twin carburettors, higher compression and other performance parts. For 1964 there was another restyling of the Victor, the "FC" series, with a huge amount of changes, including a bored out engine to 1594cc , the sportier VX4/90 version of which gave 86 bhp. For 1967 the "FD" version of the Victor came in using a new 1599cc engine, as well as a 2 litre Victor 2000 with a larger bore, and a Victor 2300. The last Vauxhall to use the Victor name was the Victor 3000 introduced in 1973.

There were many Vauxhall Victor tyre sizes, depending on the year and model so we summarise the tyre sizes below:

- Vauxhall Victor from 1957 to 1971 (Victor 1 , 2, FB , FC , FD) origionally had tyre size 5.60x13 which is radial equivalent 165R13 tyre size.

- Vauxhall Victor VX 4/90 models spanning 1961 to 1967 had larger diameter 14 inch wheels fitted with tyre size 5.60x14 , which is radial 165R14 equivalent tyre size, but we have seen tyre manufacturer lists from the period also listing the wider 185/70R14 size for the Victor also.

- Original Vauxhall Victor 3000 tyre size was 185/70R14
