1990 Vauxhall Astra GTE 16V 79k 2 Previous Owners For Sale
This car was registered in 1990 by the local Vauxhall Garage, Thompsons of Scarborough and still carries its rear number plate. It was used a demonstrator by the Sales Director and he actually kept the car for nearly two years, It was then sold to a local hotelier who used it for a couple years as his weekend car and then to its final owner a local teacher who used it locally for her daily commute before parking it up for ten years in her garage.
We collected the car by trailer and having changed the oil and filter and fitting a new cam belt and water pump, with the aid of a new battery, it fired up straight away. New Brakes were then fitted and a fresh Mot was sought and obtained.
The car has never been welded and the rear arches are excellent. Most of the car has had some paint in its 28 year life. It has had new front wings at some point and the bonnet and wings were painted. The lacquer on the bonnet is peeling in two places and there is some lacquer peel on the roof.
Internally it is original with the Recaro trim, working sunroof and radio cassette player. all of which work. The drivers bolster has a very small tear/wear hole in the usual place. The digital dash all lights up as it should and displays speed in miles and kilometres at the twist of a switch.
On the road it still puts a smile on your face, with the engine being very responsive and the steering nimble and tight.
This is by no means a concours example but the originality, low mileage and low owners. Paired with never been welded mean that it could, in the right hands, become that concours car. A full strip and paint would be the best way to do this.
Comes with two keys, service book, radio manual and car handbook.
Please don't come expecting a new car. It is 28 years old and has been stored for the last 10 years, however it is solid and complete. Perfectly usable as it is or as the basis for a real immaculate example.
