A Vauxhall Cavalier Mk1 1600GLS Sports Hatch with one owner and just 47,848 miles.

EQUIPMENT
Front air spoiler, bright sill mouldings, wheel-arch bright mouldings, opening rear quarter windows, halogen headlamps, opening rear hatch, fold down rear seats, hinged parcel shelf, Sports Hatch door pillar badge, Continental front arm rests, wood veneer door inserts, 4-spoke sports steering wheel, quartz-activated clock, full sports six pod instrumentation to include; large speedometer and rev counter, oil pressure gauge, voltmeter, water temperature gauge and fuel gauge. Dealer options; Mud flaps, front driving lamps, additional rear fog light, Phillips 880 push button stereo cassette.

EXTERIOR
Finished in factory optional Sapphire Blue Metallic, (Code L218), the original paintwork is beautifully preserved. Minor blemishes, truly insignificant, are entirely forgiven on this unrestored example and do not detract from the simply amazing condition this Cavalier is in. Worthy of mention is a small area of microscopic paint lift to the top nearside front wing, a few carefully touched in stone chips and a scratch to the lower front air spoiler. Factory panels remain fitted and panel stampings are clearly visible in the engine bay and boot area. All trim sections, rubbers, badges, lights and GM Securit glass are virtually as new, with number plate etchings to all glass and even every light lens! The original steel number plates with raised digits are fitted. Truly a rare find and a must see to fully appreciate this outstanding unrestored Cavalier.

INTERIOR
A functional and retro Vauxhall interior is certain to amaze fans of the Griffin badged cars. The original ribbed velour interior trim in Blue, (Code NN375), is in excellent order with only a neat seam repair to the drivers seat base. The coverings to the matching door cards show no shrinkage and the wood veneer inserts are as new. The matching blue dashboard and switchgear are perfect and all functions operate flawlessly including the Phillips 880 push button stereo cassette. The headlining is fully intact. All gauges in the six pod dash exclusive to the GLS Coupe and Sports Hatch models show healthy readouts. A wonderfully preserved classic Vauxhall interior.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This 1600GLS model features the sturdy 1584cc OHC four-cylinder engine developing 75bhp at 5000rpm and 81lb/ft of torque at 3800rpm. The automatic choke set up remains fitted and operates perfectly, as does the engine which is quiet and easily capable of keeping up with modern traffic. A full service has just been carried out. The engine bay is beautifully clean, unaltered and displays factory plates, stickers and GM pan filter housing. The four speed all synchromesh gearbox feels light and precise, just as you would expect from a low mileage example.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The factory fitted Sports Road wheels still have the original bright wheel trim rings and Griffin badged centre caps. Only faint markings be seen to the rings and the manufacture stampings to the rims are visible. Quality branded Radial 185/70 SR13 tyres remain fitted with ample tread. The spare wheel, jack and wheel brace are stored below the original plywood boot floor cover which still has the usually perished factory foam underneath. Dual circuit brakes with servo assistance feature 9.7in front discs and 9.1in rear drums to bring the car to a steady and assured halt having just benefitted from a full overhaul including refurbished callipers.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new by Vauxhall Motors of Luton on 11th July 1979 through the employee discount scheme, this 1600GLS Sports Hatch was subsequently transferred into private ownership with Mr Harry Richards, with whom it has remained ever since! Having covered just 47,848 miles under Mr Richards devoted ownership, this pride and joy example has been preserved impeccably. The original plastic Vauxhall wallet contains the handbooks, warranty card and manufacturer literature. There are MOT certificates dating back to 1985 and documentation such as the original blue V5 have been kept. Two original Vauxhall keys fit all locks and ignition and both petrol caps keys are present. After a period of dry storage, a full recommission process has been undertaken to ensure this cavalier is ready for maximum enjoyment and hassle free classic motoring. A very rare find in this condition and provenance and a real credit to Mr Richards, look no further for one of the best remaining Mk1 Cavalier Sport Hatchs in existence.

MOT October 2018, HPI Clear.
