Awesome.  That's going to make someone very happy, for a lifetime.

 

And - for all you about to make the "All Vauxhalls are $#!t" joke, don't.

The legal cutoff for that joke is marked by the presence of chrome bonnet strakes, and this car has them, so it dates from the time when Vauxhalls were properly designed and properly engineered.

 

And just look at those Notek spot lights!

 

Love it.  Just the perfect balance of liveability vs patina.

 

GLWTS.

Before you criticize anyone, walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, after you've criticized them, you're a mile away and you've got their shoes.

There was a Husky but that is now sold.

Two more E series to list and then they are down to manageable levels - sort of

Nice cars, certainly a better interior than the earlier cars if it has the symmetrical large circles dashboard.


Squeak, rattle and roll.
