Exclusive: Inside Vauxhall's hidden classic car collection

Read Cars Logo By David Finlay of Read Cars | Slide 1 of 16: Few car manufacturers devote so much attention to their past products as Vauxhall does. The company’s Heritage Centre, based a short walk from its headquarters in Luton, is the home to more than seventy cars, vans and concepts, maintained by a small team under the leadership of long-time Vauxhall employee Andy Boddy. Their build dates range from 1903, the year Vauxhall first built cars, to 2014, well over a century later.Heritage Centre vehicles are available to journalists for testing, and taken on outings such as the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, so you may occasionally see them and more often read about them. The Centre itself, however, is not open to the public except during an annual Open Day each summer.Despite this, Vauxhall was recently kind enough to offer us a tour of the Centre so that we could gaze in wonder and delight at the fabulous vehicles housed there. What follows is just a small selection of our favourites, along with some of the most significant models Vauxhall has ever produced.
