Synonymous with high quality touring cars and the finest sporting cars, Vauxhall 23-60 was on a par with Bentley and Sunbeam.

Vauxhall 23-60’s unique design

In 1922 a new detachable cylinder head was introduced with dramatic improvements for the new OD and OE models, including pushrod overhead valves. The 23/60 is a delightful and practical tourer, of impeccable Edwardian ancestry, surviving in production until 1926 when the Luton company was taken over by General Motors. The Kington tourer body was offered on both the D and OD models, a style not dissimilar to the Velox 30/98 body, but more spacious, at 10′ 10” wheelbase, to the 30/98’s 9′ 9 1/2”, with 65mph from the 4-litre engine which developed a respectable 60bhp at a leisurely 2000rpm.
