Gearbox now with either four on the floor, or three on the column. Still with bench seats but de-luxe model offers leather trim and separate seats. Four door saloon or estate car options.
VX 4/90 has 71 bhp engine, better trim with wood on the dash, separate front seats, and contrasting colour flash on sides.
Vauxhall Velox PA was given a larger engine (2651 cc), improved brakes, larger wheels and, as a facelift for 1961, detail styling changes, improved lights and a redesigned instrument panel. Cresta PA model featured the same improvements. From September disc brakes standardised on Cresta.
