The Queen’s PA Cresta

This PA Cresta Friary Estate was delivered to the Queen in 1961 and (according to Vauxhall) is one one of her favourite cars. The PA is finished in Imperial Green – a bespoke colour created just for Her Majesty and features fishing rod holders on the roof and a gun rack in the back. In 1961 the PA would have cost £1309 new, although we imagine the extras would have added another £100 to the list price. The Cresta is currently on loan to the Vauxhall Heritage Centre in Luton.
