1978 Vauxhall Chevette HS. Nut & Bolt Restored. Concours Car For Sale

We sold this car to a much respected car collector last year, and are delighted to have the car return to our stock,having sold him another vehicle.

These cars are highly underated in our opinion, being very rare and having endured a successful rallying career. They are a fabulous drive.

This iconic car is just spot on in every department,probably better than the day it left the factory..

I guarantee the first serious buyer or collector who views it,will purchase this car.

Nut & Bolt restored to an obsessive standard by a dedicated and talented enthusiast around 1000 miles ago ( The best cars always are ,as time isn't charged), and has just completed a careful 1000 miles since.

There is a huge file of invoices,and a full pictoral record of the work carried out.
