1978 Cavalier 1.6 GL


Recommended Posts

Vauxhall Cavalier 1.6 GL

Was an Auto but now fitted with a 5 speed manual Manta Gearbox.

44,762 miles

Last MOT in 2007 with a fail in 2010. A little rust but not bad.

Unfortunately there is damage to the passenger doors that occurred in storage

A great starting point for a project.

I bought this car as part of a bereavement sale so I don’t know that much about it.

This is the cars story from Mantaman.


My friends got it running for me at the weekend after a bit if a struggle with the points. It ran around my field just fine but it was noted that it has a noisy clutch release bearing. Also the brakes will need some work.

V5C is present and in my name

Can be viewed/collected near Buckingham MK18



As some of you know I bought a collection of cars belonging to the late Mantaman. Some are keepers and others will have to be sold on, this is the first of the I can't keep everything cars!
