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!

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.

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!
