Vauxhall’s famous Heritage Collection of classic models are set to move from the company’s Griffin House site next month as plans move forward to develop a customer facing solution. The imminent sale of Vauxhall’s former Luton site means that the Collection will find a new interim home at the company’s Ellesmere Port factory, where a converted 8,000 square-meter building has been set aside for the 60-strong Collection, which represents every decade of Vauxhall’s 117-year history.
Ellesmere Port, home of Vauxhall’s compact car production for the last 56 years and current manufacturing site for the Astra, ‘…is proud to be the Collection’s temporary custodian,’ said Plant Director, Mark Noble. ‘We’re all looking forward to the arrival of these Heritage vehicles, some of which have been manufactured here over the last six decades. We’ve made sure that the area which will house the cars is heated, dry and secure, in keeping with the way the Collection has been stored in its former Luton home for the last 30 years.’ It’s great news that a manufacture takes such car and pride in its history. Good luck to all involved and we look forward to the formal opening.
