Viva floorpan

Postby Adriaan » Sun Jun 04, 2017 9:26 am

Hello everyone,

I'm restoring a Dutch viva from 1970 for my neighbour. Whilst he is very good with mechanical work, he's not a welder. I've restored a couple of old citro├źns and a few Allegro's. I'm not a stranger to welding.

Back to the Viva. The complete floor underneath the front seats has rusted away. The rest of the car is okay. I was.wondering if there is a complete floorpan with tunnel or perhaps the separate parts for sale somewhere?

If there is someone here who knows, I'd be very grateful for your help.

Greetings,

Adrian.

No floor pans were ever available. Either make your own or find a scrap car and cut them out.

Viva HB / HC floorpans ARE available. From Australia only. Look at the "Rare Spares" website. Then search under Holden.....Torana....TJ The floorpans are expensive to buy and carriage and taxes /duty etc all add up. But they are a very good fit, with moulded fluting in the correct places. Better than a flat sheet of tin.

Good stuff on this site. Sadly no panels for HB Torana, but a few of the LC / LJ Torana panels might be adaptable for HB / HC Viva in addition to the above mentioned floorpans? Eg: the boot floor repair sections and spare wheel well?

The LC / LJ Torana used the floorpan, two door doors, A post, front scuttle and front windscreen with its rubber from the Vauxhall Viva HB. Forward of the scuttle, it had longer wings (Holden) and rearwards of the doors it was a coupe bodystyle (Holden)
The front floorpan they make is same as Viva HB, which in turn will also fit HC.
