MK1 Cavalier Early TV advert

Although I wasn't born when this advert initally aired, and the car didn't help Vauxhall all that much sales wise, I can't help but love the 70's funk-orchestra influenced soundtrack!

Amazing Vauxhall Cavalier Mk1 2000 GL, One Owner, 51,348 Miles, Full History - SOLD!
SOLD - MORE URGENTLY REQUIRED An original, late Vauxhall Cavalier Mk1 2000 GL with just 51,348 miles, one family owner and full history from new. EQUIPMENT Extra brightwork, matt black rear panel, body side mouldings with PVC inserts, bright sill and wheel arch mouldings, adjustable front head restraints, carpeted lower doors, laminated screen, boot light, cigar lighter, quartz clock, push-button radio, vanity mirror, six pod instrument console. EXTERIOR Factory original Mandarin Red paint still retains a beautiful deep gloss finish with absolutely no colour fade. There is no corrosion or rust and the vehicle is structurally perfect. Small areas where paint work has been treated with a touch up brush, mainly on the front valance, however, there has been no attempt to fill or spray the car in these areas confirming the cars honesty and originality. The engine bay has been regularly coated in WD40 by the previous owner helping to preserve all inner wings. The car is still fitted with the supplying Dealer number plates. The rear lower valance protection has discoloured. The original tools, jack and spare wheel are retained in the boot. A beautiful rare survivor. INTERIOR Incredible. A true 1970's interior finished in unmarked Beige Ribbed velour cloth trim, preserved perfectly by tailor-made matching seat covers on the front seats from new (these have now been removed). All the trim is factory standard and fully operational controls and gauges make this interior remarkable. As a final run-out model these late GL specification vehicles were fitted with GLS refinements making this interior very plush. The two tone tan over black dashboard remains free from scuffs and cracks. The heater fan is not working and the headlining around the 'C' pillars is slightly discoloured. A perfect, comfortable cruising classic. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION Being the more powerful '2000' engine unit the 1979cc OHC 4-cylinder produces 100bhp and 113lb/ft of torque enough to make long outings a joy and comfortable. A full complement of service invoices exist from new leaving no doubt this car has been meticulously maintained. The 4-speed all synchromesh gearbox is light and precise. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES. Unblemished Rostyle sport wheels with excellent 185/70SR radials and chrome bezel trims. The bezels are showing signs of pitting and would benefit from being renewed at some point. Dual circuit, servo assisted braking system, incorporating discs at the front and rear drums are positive. HISTORY FILE Registered to a Mr Hallows on the 1st September 1981 by Vauxhall Main Dealers, Vantage Garages of Timperley, Cheshire this car has had a pampered life. Original bill of sale is accompanied by the Gold Seal Guarantee for rust proofing and a receipt for the fitting of rear seatbelts from new. Mr Hallows cherished the car throughout his ownership, keeping masses of invoices and even letters he sent to Vauxhall requesting assistance on maintenance matters, including their replies with technical drawings and exploded diagrams. The car was passed to Mr Hallows' daughter and son in law when he passed away and has benefited from the same enthusiasm and care shown by Mr Hallows throughout his ownership. Supplying brochure from 1981 and all handbooks, service books, warranty books and instruction manuals are supplied with the car. This is a truly cherished, rare car and remains a perfect reflection of the manufacturer's intentions. The vehicle is supplied with 12 Months MOT and Tax. HPI clear.





Top Gear Reviews the MK2 Cavalier (1981)
Top gear review the early spec launch cavalier GLS 1600. It's worth noting that this was before the fuel injection and the rest of the range was launched. These car's were the first of three revisions that Vauxhall performed on the model throughout the 1980's. This video was very hard to come by!

Always liked Vauxhall's presentation in the 1980's. some where between the tone of a public service announcement and a Sci_fi flick. Was a fantastic decade for Vauxhall which put them back on track financially.

Peugeot 305 Advert Late 70s
Peugeot 305 car advert from the late 1970's, I'm guessing the advert dates from around the 305's launch in 1977. Classic retro disco soundtrack....as the cheesy song says 'it's the Peugeot!'.

Vauxhall Chevette Original TV Advert [Opel Kadett]
I couldn't resist not posting this, even if it just illustrates just how far cars, (and their advertising) have come in the past 25+ years. By comparison the 1980's cars that followed were positively space age in comparison.

Patrick Macnee (John Steed - The Avengers) Vauxhall Advert
Two Adverts back to back featuring Patrick Macnee advertising Vauxhall. Vauxhall had their Centenary a few years ago, yet in the ad he states "75 years" which shows you just how old this video is.
