Introduction

Welcome to Vauxhall's Heritage Centre site. The Vauxhall Heritage Centre is based in Luton at the company's headquarters and houses over 70 vintage and classic motor vehicles and a massive photo and document archive, all an integral element of Vauxhall's history in the UK. The vehicles are maintained by a dedicated heritage team who ensure that they are either ready for road or show use as and when required.

The launch of this new section provides information on Vauxhall’s history from the early 1900's to the present day - Vauxhall has been continuously manufacturing and selling motor vehicles in the UK since 1903. You'll be able to find spec sheets on the historic collection, photographs and also details of any upcoming events, including the annual Heritage Centre Open Day, Drive It Day, Classics on the Common and the Vauxhall Bedford Owners Association (VBOA) rally at Billing Aquadrome.

We'll also plan to highlight a car from the collection each month with keys facts and stats. Vauxhall's heritage vehicles are available for press loans in support of editorial features. We are happy to arrange a loan within specific guidelines and based on each individual requirement - please feel free to contact the Veronica Borrelli-Painter on the number below.

If there is anything you cannot find on our website or if you would like further information on a particular car, please call or email Veronica with details. She will dig deep into the archive and happily dust off the information you require.

We hope that you enjoy exploring this tab and find it useful.
