Sold in the UK from 1988, the Vauxhall Nova GTE was Vauxhall's small hot hatch of the time competing alongside the likes of Ford, Renault, Peugeot and MG. Only sold for 3 years as a Mk1, the car was powered by a 1,600cc fuel injected engine producing 100BHP and driving the front wheels through a 5 speed gearbox. The car was well made and felt quick back then, unfortunately, it was targeted by joy riders and therefore they are a rare sight on the roads today.

The car we have available for sale today is the rarest of the rare ‚ a one owner car with low mileage, full history, and to totally original specification.

Finished in Steel Grey metallic, the car was sold by Vauxhall dealer Mann Egerton of St Ives to its one and only lady owner. The standard specification included the 3 spoke 14" alloy wheels, central door locking, a slide & tilt glass sunroof and a Philips 670 radio cassette with 4 speakers. The only non standard option was an essential Laserline alarm system.

Covering only 42,432 miles from new, the condition of this car is better than outstanding. The paintwork and panel fit is perfect with the original vinyls still intact. The original dealer window sticker and number plates are still with the car. Inside the car, all of the original trim is as new. The seats have no bolster wear and have not been re trimmed. The carpets also are perfect and there have been no additional speakers fitted anywhere. Under the bonnet much of the original protection wax is present and has 'yellowed' nicely with age. Under the car, much of the suspension and brake components have been powder coated and waxoyled, there is a new exhaust fitted.

This immaculate car is a Vauxhall collectors dream, points to note are:-
One lady owner from new with just 42,000 miles.
Original sales invoice showing a discounted on the road price of £8,780, the customer delivery receipt is also in the history file.
