90’s Corsa – yep that 90’s Corsa..

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Getting rid of this bad boy as it has served its purpose (only needed it as a stand in after some twonk went into the back on my mrs and wrote off her Clio while I found a car she ‘liked’...)

Good Bits:

·         Four good tyres

·         Mot’d recently (couple of months ago)

·         Only 12k miles on the clock

·         No power steering, wind up windows, manual locks… (very little to go wrong on it…)

·         All the heaters work (handy for this time of year)

Bad Bits

·         Exhaust makes a bit of noise (needs a bit of patching up – could be a bonus if you’re a boy racer..)

·         Fuel gauge is crap (half full means empty…, caught me out a few times…, now I keep a jerry can in the back..)

·         Drivers front wing is slightly bent (have included a pic so you can see)

I bought it off the moog a few months back and thought it was only fair to bang it back on the forum once I was finished with it (I did promise him I would when I stole it off him for 300 quid..)

Anyway, pics below, £250, pick up from Liverpool…

If this was nearer Norfolk I’d probably have it to time capsule but in all honesty I just can’t be arsed with trains or spending more money on transport.

 

 

Helpful post is helpful.

I really want to hate these, I think because I loved the Nova and these were sent by Vauxhall to kill it off.

 

But look at that face. How can you hate that face? It's like a puppy that just wants to be loved. Perhaps it has an overbite, or funny markings, but it's the last one of the litter and it has those big eyes.

 

You should definitely put that bit in the advert, it'll help. Trust me, I'm drunk.

Honestly don't think I could ever not like these cars, they most certainly do have a charm of their own.

 

 

+1 on the lotto, I'd be well up for a few tickets.

I'd actually add 2.5% to the mileage to drive this home...

 

But would take a couple of roffle tickets if you went that way.

I am tempted to go that way lol, could be fun and i'll updaye the thread to keep everyone in the loop.., just figured someone would grab it cos of the mileage...

If you were an estate agent, you would suggest it had potential (as a 2.0 LET engined GSi replica).

 

Or mention : It's 3 door and has no sun roof so a perfect shell for a rally car.

Funny you should say that because I was going to say sell it to the Corsa B modding lads on the premise of an SRi re-shell donor what with it being missing a v-grille and post-97 bumpers which is very odd on an R plate Corsa, so already has the correct bumpers and is also pre-97 'facelift' spec.

Had one of these on an L plate in 1.5TD form a few years back.  The extra weight up front made it feel a lot more solid.

 

Went like a scalded cat once you got past the comedy turbo lag too.  Would happily light up the inside wheel on corners/roundabouts in 3rd.

 

Still ran and drove like new as well despite having 140K on the clock and everything worked, nothing rattled (except the bonnet), and once I turned the idle speed up 50rpm to shift the resulting vibration from the precise resonance frequency of the entire bloody dashboard was actually astonishing refined.

 

Sadly the rust killed it off in the end.

I am tempted by this but I would turn it into an SRi replica as I already have the necessary parts, apart from the door badges on my existing car.

 

However I would want to respray it which woukd be costly and tbh I think it would get a better home with someone who appreciates it for what it is.

      Allegedly "There is an undercurrent going around saying that I simply lurk around AS to buy cheap shitters and sell them on for a profit and that I'm generally just a dodgy character."
       
      Have a read through this and see if that's the case.

      Well, OK, just a few brochures for sale, after having sorted through my pile over Christmas.
       
      The postage price will vary according to weight, so the prices below exclude postage - we'll sort this out in PMs. Obviously, if anyone wants more than one, I'll send them together. All are in excellent condition, with some very minor age related creases.

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am
