Vauxhall Victor FB
The FB was designed by a team headed by David Jones, which also included Gerald Palmer (of Jowett Javelin and Riley Pathfinder fame). It replaced the 'Chevrolet-in-miniature' Victor FA. In 1962 Vauxhall launched the new Cresta PB and Velox PB and that body design employed the same front and rear doors of the Victor FB. Power came from an upgraded version of the 1508cc engine, but a new head and twin carbs increased this to 81bhp for the VX4/90 version. Launched in 1961, the FB Victor sold 328,000 before being replaced by the Victor FC. Standard body was a 4-door saloon or a 5-door estate car, and there was a modest restyle for 1964 with new grilles and a different side stripe for the VX4/90.

Vauxhall Victor 1964 VX4/90 - badge on wing. This car was branded 'VX four ninety' but very quickly called the 'VX4/90'. The name referred to the fact that it has 4 cylinders and could attain 90mph - the speed was just about true.

Vauxhall  Victor 1962 VX4-90 1962 front
Vauxhall Victor 1962 VX 4/90 (FB). The Victor FB was carefully un-American after the FA suffered from being reworked by GM. David Jones was determined to exert his own ideas on this car, and together with Gerald Palmer they created the Victor FB as an autonomous design.
