The Vauxhall Heritage collection is going on public display for the first time in its 72-year history.

The ‘Vauxhall – Made in Luton’ exhibition opens on September 5 at Luton’s Stockwood Discovery Centre.

The main exhibition includes a timeline of ten significant Luton-built Vauxhall cars from the very first Vauxhall 7/9hp to roll off the Kimpton Road production line in 1905 to a 2002 Vectra that was the last passenger car produced before the plant started to produce LCVs exclusively.

The exhibition runs until Easter 2021, and in addition to the main exhibition cars a different feature car will be shown each month, starting with a chrome- and fin-laden 1959 PA Velox.

‘This is a perfect opportunity for the public to get up close and personal with cars from our collection that are normally only seen via the hundred-or-so media loans that we arrange each year,’ said Simon Hucknall, Vauxhall’s Head of PR.

Admission to the exhibition is free, and with opening hours of 11am-5pm Thursday to Sunday.
