New to the Viva world

Postby Acton-hc » Tue May 05, 2020 9:51 am

Hey I’m new to the viva world after owning loads and loads of Fords and w couple of Japanese cars thought I’d try something different, so here’s my Vauxhall Viva Hc 1800 Deluxe with 28/36 carb conversion, the car is currently in Yorkshire and I’m in Torquay so as soon as lockdown is over I can collect it from family.

The 1800 deluxe is now a very rare car and the DCD carb conversion a very sought after period modification. Looking forward to seeing pictures.

Easiest way is to upload them to Face Book and then download them again.

GT was a HB Viva, wont fit a HC. Think carefully on an engine swap, not many 1800 left.
