VAUXHALL CAVALIER 1.6 SR, 1982, 4 DOOR SALOON, FOUR SPEED MANUAL This is a very charming early example that is fitted with a four speed gear box and one mirror. The exterior is finished in Jamaica Yellow over anthracite and looks fantastic in its fresh paint, its still fitted with its original SR alloy wheels which are in great condition. Its fitted with Recaro front seats finished in Highland check cloth, the carpet is showing no signs of wear and the interior generally is excellent. Underneath the car is rust free and the usual places cavaliers suffer are superb. This is a four owner car and shows 16,000 miles on the clock. I have mot certificates going back to 1995 showing 9486 miles so not sure if this genuine, the condition and wear on the car would suggest its right but you will have to make your own decision on that one. Just to summarise this is a very early immaculate example and i would highly recommend viewing. CONTACT US ON 01604 646400 OR 07889 063867

It is clear that this has been a very well looked after example. There are only a couple of light stone chips which are to be expected on the front bumper. There is no rust, blemishes or scratches. Likewise, all light lenses and trim retain a fresh appearance. All the glass on the car is still original, being etched by BMW. The front windscreen still retains both the original running in sticker and airbag sticker. This just gives you an idea of how wonderful this example is. The original BMW soft top is in equally as great a condition and the rear screen is still clear and not hazy. It is evident that the paintwork throughout this car is still all original.

The engine bay is completely original throughout and in great order. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES The 17-inch alloy wheels are in great original condition and are shod in a set of tyres all with good tread.
