The Cavalier from Vauxhall needs little introduction today following the epic war between Ford and Vauxhall from the late 1970s right up to the 2000s for market supremacy. Ford had the Cortina and later the Sierra. Vauxhall had the Cavalier in its many different guises and the battle of the rep-mobile was both long-lasting and intense!

Both manufacturers held close to 50% of the UK sales market for most of that period and their status as the chosen transport of company representatives meant that the majority of them covered very high mileages very quickly. Consequently, very few low mileage cars survive today and those that do are often in less than sparkling condition.

Which means that this car, a 1992 Vauxhall Cavalier GSI 16V four-door saloon, which has only covered 27,355 miles from new with just one registered keeper ~ is very rare and highly collectable today.

Everything is original on this car. The way it looks inside and out, the way it drives, even the original hand-pack (including instruction book, service book and warranty info) and spare keys are present. The most amazing thing about this car, apart from its rarity, is that it has never been restored. Garaged from new and only used in fine weather it was the owner's pride and joy receiving regular maintenance and care all the way through its life which explains its remarkable originality.

As they say in the trade “Go find another” especially a one registered keeper, low mileage example like this one. A number of the low mileage cars that appear in auction from time to time display such tiny mileages that to use them at all may well devalue their USP. This immaculate GSi has covered just over 27,000 miles, low but not critically low, and consequently could be enjoyed for a couple of thousand miles a year going to shows etc. without affecting its value as a long-term investment. Feel free to book an appointment to view this remarkable gleaming Vauxhall, jump in the driving seat and go back 30 years to your 'Cavalier' days.
