Perrys Auction Off Classic Car

Proceeds To Raise Money For Charity

Legendary crooner Elvis Costello mentioned this iconic car in one of his songs, it made appearances in television shows such as The Avengers and The Sweeney and now you can get your hands on a Vauxhall Viva.

Perrys, the UK’s national franchise car dealership is auctioning off a 1977 Vauxhall Viva 1300L as part of their Miles 4 Smiles charity auction event.  The gold coloured stunning example has only 11,000 miles on the clock since 1977 and only two owners from new, one being Perrys.  

You can take a look at it yourself as Perrys will be going on a nationwide tour with the car from 9th January.  There will be plenty of entertainment for all the family, including raffles, face painting and the opportunity to bid for the Viva and a selection of other lots including an Apple iPad and a steering wheel signed by racing legend, Sir Stirling Moss.    

The tour starts this week on 9th January in Huddersfield.

9 th January – St Georges Square Huddersfield, West Yorkshire

11 th January – Rotherham United FC, South Yorkshire

12 th January – Perrys Preston dealership, Lancashire.

15 th January – Millgate Shopping Centre Bury, Lancashire

16 th January – Market Square Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire

19 th January – Tesco in Whitstable, Kent

Bids will also be taken on Ebay:

100% of the proceeds will benefit Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.  The charity helps children with a shortened life expectancy get the care and support they need both at home and at the hospice.

Perrys Chairman Ken Savage remembers the Vauxhall Viva well, ‘I have fond memories of the Vauxhall Viva, my mum used to pick me up from school in her Viva. It’s very unusual to find a car such as our Viva in such great and original condition and I really hope it goes to somebody who will really appreciate it. I am delighted to be able to use the car to raise money for such a worthwhile cause.’

So if you fancy owning a blast of the past, getting your flares back on and driving around in a 70’s classic, then get bidding for the Vauxhall Viva!
