Vauxhall Heritage collection saved by BMM

Post by mab01uk »

"The future of the Vauxhall Heritage Collection looks to have been secured with the news the British Motor Museum has become its new custodian.
The move follows months of work behind the scenes and will see the majority of the collection’s historic cars and vans displayed together in public for the first time.
There’s been speculation around the future of the collection for several years. It had previously been on display by appointment at Vauxhall’s Heritage Centre in Luton, but this was closed in 2020 for the site to be redeveloped. The majority of cars were put into storage in Ellesmere Port during the intervening period, but 11 cars were sent to auction last September, and a further nine in April. Changes to the brand’s ownership in recent years – it was bought by PSA Group in 2017 and became part of Stellantis this January – have also fuelled concerns.
Last November, Vauxhall announced it was developing plans for a new, purpose-built base for the collection. However, that’s all changed with the news that its vehicles will be moved to the Warwickshire venue. Altogether there will be 30 cars from the collection on display, mostly on the mezzanine but also around other parts of the museum. The vehicles will continue to be owned by Vauxhall."

And likely to be there for the foreseeable future.
