The Vauxhall Velox is a medium–sized six cylinder saloon. By the time production ended in 1965, it had evolved into a large family car, competing with the contemporary six-cylinder Ford Zephyr. It was introduced by Vauxhall in 1948 as a successor to the Vauxhall Fourteen.
The Velox EIP was introduced in 1953 – a completely new, much larger Velox, featuring a modern three box shape and integral construction. Less than one year after the appearance of the first ponton models, the Velox received a new over-square 2262 cc engine which had been in the development pipeline for several years. 1954 saw a significant facelift. Most obvious of the many cosmetic changes was a new front grill.
The Velox is remembered for having mirrored North American styling trends much more closely than other European models of the time.
