  1. Pity about the modern stereo with speakers in parcel shelf and door cards, but looks very nice apart from that.
  2. Not sure it's a known thing, but it seems to me (assuming they are being fitted correctly) it can only either be the clip, or the groove in the spindle, and the clip is the cheap option. I bought a pair of the clips as I lost one from my A.
  3. Sounds like you need some new clips, these should do the job https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-Opel-2x-WINDOW-WINDER-REGULATOR-HANDLE-RETAINING-SPRINGS-CLIPS-NEW/311742753680?fits=Car+Make%3AVauxhall&hash=item489550eb90:g:wNIAAOSwXeJYLY7b:rk:2:pf:1&frcectupt=true
  4. Bit of an early heads up, pub meet a week tomorrow, Monday 11th February.
  5. I'm not sure when the really nice 3 spoke SR wheel was introduced, I suspect it was probably late 1977 for the 1978 model year.
  6. Yes, think I was wrong about the base model not having rubber inserts on the bumpers, but that does look like the base model. Hopefully you'll find it a good home with someone who'll love it for what it is, rather than what it could be. Early SR would've had this wheel.
  7. At that age the SR was the only model with a rev counter, and it would've had opening rear windows. The base model was L and also wouldn't have had the rubber trim on the bumper. The S just signified the higher powered engine if I remember right.
  8. The top one is what all 3 of mine have had, not sure if the bottom one is from a later car as I've not owned one of the facelifted ones. edit - Just looked at Mark Kinnon's site where he was selling a later seat and that also has the top design of adjuster.
  9. I'd leave it auto as well if it were me. I've not driven an auto A, but loved driving my old 1.9 auto B.
  10. These are the ones fitted to earlier cars http://dr-manta-shop.de/epages/0859c4be-b99b-4b88-8216-6a78b07dc4b5.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/0859c4be-b99b-4b88-8216-6a78b07dc4b5/Products/AS01-DR-M It looks like Opel offered other styles as options, including bullet style, and possibly Engelmans. I'm going by a fairly small photo in Rainer Manthey's Ascona A book.
  11. For a 74 car I believe these are the correct pattern door mirrors. http://dr-manta-shop.de/epages/0859c4be-b99b-4b88-8216-6a78b07dc4b5.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/0859c4be-b99b-4b88-8216-6a78b07dc4b5/Products/01510010
