The Vauxhall Victor Owners Club caters for all Vauxhall Victors manufactured from 1957 – 1967 which includes the F Series, FB, and FC models together with their VX4/90 and export variants (Sherwood, Envoy).
The Club was founded in 1981, originally catering for just the F model, but later expanded to encompass the later models which share some common components. The Club produces an award winning quarterly magazine, ‘Centre Section’ that keeps members up to date with events and provides information, shares members experiences, offers technical advice and has a Classified Ads section for cars and spares.
Parts supply for Victors
The relatively low number of surviving Victors means that remanufacture of parts is generally uneconomical. Chasing the parts that exist therefore becomes almost a hobby in itself for any Victor owner. Inevitably these days parts are mostly found online, with eBay being probably the biggest single marketplace, but there are also several Facebook pages where owners get together to buy and sell spares. Auto jumbles seem to be declining as a source although you never know what might turn up, especially at the large ones such as Beaulieu. The National show at Sywell never fails to turn up many interesting pieces, both on the auto jumble and the club stand.
Last but not least, the Owners Club does have a small selection of spare parts for sale to members, and inevitably many members have collected parts over the years which they sell through the club magazine or simply through member-to-member contact.
The parts situation therefore is nothing like that for a car such as the MGB, where everything is available off the shelf. However as the lovely examples of Victors on display every year at Sywell prove, parts are available – through both physical and online searching, as well as networking and building up contacts and friends who may just have that part you need.
