|Many thanks for taking the time to view my low-mileage Vauxhall Calibra in superb condition.|
It’s a late special edition model which benefits from a very high specification level including cream leather interior, heated front seats, white dashboard and tilt/sliding electric sunroof.
The previous owner was a lady who bought car when it was 9 months old and then kept it for a staggering 19 years until she had to give up driving due to her age.
Engine / Gearbox
Possibly the best Vauxhall engine the 2.0 8v is a well-proven unit having been in use since the 80's. It is smooth, reliable and performs very well. Having been serviced regularly it runs quietly with no tappet noise.
The cambelt water pump tensioner was replaced @ 43,163 miles in 2015 along with thermostat, antifreeze, oil & oil filter. The battery was also replaced in feb 2018.
The idle control valve doesn’t work currently from a cold start. However, it runs fine and doesn’t stall, it jus. Idles with lower revs than expected.
The 4-speed auto gearbox with sport mode switch has had regular transmission fluid changes. There’s no delay between park and drive/reverse either when hot or cold.
Suspension / Steering / Brakes / Tyres
2 rear shock absorbers were replaced in july 2019 as well as new tyres all round.
The car drives well with no lurching, no unwelcome noises, drives smoothly and does not leak fluid. Brakes are as when new (the braking system has only needed replacement fluid). steering is powerful with a slightly remote feel but no swerving or skidding.
Exterior / interior
I think that the blue metallic and cream leather colour combination is quite possibly the best available for the Calibra.
The interior is excellent albeit with some minor expected wear on the driver’s seat bolster. Otherwise. It’s great, as is the boot area and headliner. All equipment works as expected.
The body is rust-free, (apart from, a rust spot about the size of a 5 pence piece on the lower part of the driver door and no rust on in the sunroof. There’s no evidence of any respraying anywhere on any panels (including bumpers and mirrors) which are all a perfect colour match. There’s some very minor scratching and dents (see pics), but overall the car is excellent for the age of the vehicle. Alloy wheels are in very good, if not perfect condition.

Parts / Works done since I’ve owned the car:
The paperwork includes some service and parts receipts, although not a complete service history. There are some stamps present in the service book.
Since owning the car I have replaced many parts and thoroughly serviced it, including all oils, gearbox and brake fluid, plus much more.
I covered 6,000 miles in the vehicle before declaring it SORN and garaging it for the past two years whilst. I enjoyed my other classic cars, which has kept the mileage low.
I have replaced new oil and the filter @45,949 miles on the 2nd of Oct 2019
also antifreeze and thermostat replaced at around 44k miles in Aug 2018
The radio is an original that was standard factory fit from new. I never use the radio. It works but there is an issue with the display fading sometimes, and some of the buttons are slightly sticky due ageing of the radio’s rubber seals.
If you would like to view the car, I am based South West London, very close to M3 junction 1 and A316 with great access from M4, M25, A4 and A312
