No it shouldn't!  It needs using regularly for all the purposes a car was designed for!  Take it to work, go shopping, visit family, take holidays... however beautiful they are (and this certainly is) they're not Art!

Is this a 2 speed or 3 speed auto?

Seem to remember Powerglide is the two speed auto, after about 1969 or so they got a three speed. Not sure what the front seat is from (possibly PB Cresta?) but that's probably an FB Victor steering wheel too.

Lovely looking thing. For a second, I thought it was this one from the blue, but heavily played with. Vauxhall were getting it so right with their cars in the 60's through to 80's.

I do like a Cresta, did have a nice PB back in about 1986, no photos to hand though. So here's a couple of my PC with a slight rake and excellent flame job, sorry for appalling old photo quality. And no I didn't do the customisation, only bought it because it was cheap. Like a tenner cheap. Other 70s customs there for comedy value.

It's got a 'glide box....which may or not be original, wheel is Victor, front seat could be a P.B..........

Sorry, if it sounds like I'm knocking your car I'm not! It was just an observation and I may well be wrong on the year. Mine was a 72 and a three speed auto

Around a decade ago iirc. It was sold, crashed, and straightened over the following years. All gone quiet on it now though - needed repaint and no MOT history. If I was in the market, I’d so want to buy Colc’s Cresta, and get it looking like the one above.
