Sellers original description:
Hi here you are looking at a Vauxhall cavalier , 4 door saloon, 1.3l with 5 speed gearbox, 1988/ f reg, it has had 2 owners from new and has covered just under 27,000 miles from new with service history. It was laid up since 2007 as the elderly owner became too ill to drive and was stored in a dry garage on the side of his house. I recovered the car and recommissioned it as it was in such good order, the car was sold to me by the new family owners who are personal friends of mine as they knew that i would bring it back to its former glory. I also know the previous owner to the elderly owner as they still to this day work for Vauxhall and the salesman who supplied the car from the local Vauxhall garage. I know the cars history as the car has spent its entire life in the village that i live in. I recovered car from the garage it was stored in and washed it and set about giving it a full going over before replacing all fluids, replacing any deteriorated rubber parts and over hauling the brakes. It has also had a new battery fitted and a full service including cambelt, all parts used were genuine Vauxhall parts, the car is in excellent condition for its year and drives really well, a true time warp classic. The last picture was taken just after i washed the car which was within an hour of collecting the car from the garage that it was stored in.... Unfortunately i am a classic ford man at heart so the cavalier as clean as it is does not really fit into my collection hence being for sale. The car will be sold with a years mot, there is no tax currently on the car but it is in a very low tax band. This is one of those classic cars that you can jump into and take straight to classic car shows without panicking about it breaking down and 5 speed for cruising along open roads.
