"Jesmond and Gloria I happened to read some of the testimonials posted on your website and after our recent dealings feel compelled to add my two cents worth despite the fact I never usually give written testimonials other than in my work environment .Firstly I have to say that everything I have read pretty much sums up your combined service and approach to selling and buying of the classic cars you represent .Secondly having brought two cars , one sight unseen, and sold two cars in the last 12 months I can only reiterate the comments of others regarding your honesty and integrity and good communication. As for Gloria's attention to getting the logistics arranged smoothly and other follow up given the unfortunate delivery issue with one of the cars I bought, I cannot say enough and appreciate the efforts .It truly is a pleasure working with you on my NZ fleet of vehicles. Having also had the chance to meet you and spend a few hours looking at and talking classic cars during my last visit to NZ it is a pleasure to see someone else with the same passion and knowledge of classic cars .I see that your business is not just a business but is a passion to do the right thing by the people you are working with, be they buyers or sellers and also to do the right thing by the cars you sell .Given we are now working on another sell and buy opportunity I am sure we will continue to have more dealings in the future as my little fleet takes further shape Best Regards"

      Vauxhall Motors is a British automotive company founded in 1857, which began manufacturing cars in 1903 and was acquired by GM in 1925.

      Towards the end of 1934, Vauxhall's famous Light Six range, the ASY and ASX Series, were phased out to be replaced by a new and far more modern looking range, the DX and DY Types (DY being the Twelve-Six and DX being the Fourteen-Six variant).

      With the introduction of these new models came independent front suspension for the first time on a popular priced British car. This was another Vauxhall ‘first', for the Cadet range of 1931 – 1933 had been the first British car to be equipped with a synchromesh gearbox. The new 'D' Series was largely responsible for Vauxhall's sales record of over 25000 units in 1935 and priced at GBP225.00, the DX represented extremely good value with six cylinder power.

      This now rare Pre-War 1938 Vauxhall 14/6 DX Series is Chassis #: 730022. It is in VERY GOOD CONDITION especially when considering it is 74 years old.

      Rarely driven and always garaged, body is straight, rust free and comes with VERY GOOD paint. 

      Leather Interior ORIGINAL and in well preserved condition. New Carpet and new hood lining.

      VERY GOOD Mechanically and EXCELLENT 6 cylinder motor, which cruises beautifully at 50 miles per hour.

      Good rubber. Good Battery. Good Tires.

      Very few good condition survivors of this pre-war model left.

      An appreciating collectable vehicle forming part of New Zealand's automotive history.
