Vauxhall - Vauxhall Viva

The Vauxhall Viva was introdced in 1963, a model which was the British GM version of the German built Opel Kadett. For 1966 came the rebodied Viva HB version, now with a slightly enlarged 1160cc engine - initially a 2 door, followed by an Estate, and then finally a 4 door. Larger engine sizes were also available from 1968 at 1600cc, and 2 litre. The third Viva version was the Viva HC introduced from 1970, with only two capacities on offer, the 1150 (later enlarged to 1256cc) and 1600 engines. Viva production ran to 1979.

Vauxhall Viva Tyre sizes: From 1968 all models of Viva had 13" wheels, which were initially fitted with either cross ply tyre size 5.20x13 for the smaller engined cars and later on fitted with the slightly larger 5.60x13. The radial equivalent of these sizes is the 145R13 and 155R13 . The wider version 175/70R13 was also fitted to all models, Victor 1800, 2300 including Estate versions, and Blockley produces a superb 175/70VR13 size.
