Vauxhall Viva cold start
Looking through an old hard drive I found this old video of my 1976 Viva E. Takes me back! Guess I never got around to posting it.... Its running terribly in the video as the distributor had worn its centre bearing and was causing all sorts of ignition issues. I replaced that, sorted out the timing so it didn't overheat and enjoyed it for a while. The horrendous tapping noise wasn't valve clearances (they were set many times, by many different folks who all swore blind they could shut it up). Never found the cause as I swapped in a rebuilt good lump which gave the car new life! Previous engine must of been down 20bhp! This car is now awaiting a restoration in my yard while I do other projects. Miss the old girl though.

Took a trip to the Vauxhall Heritage Centre today to film a Mk1 Cavalier. However, my attention was drawn to the absolutely stunning Vauxhall SRV Concept. Can't believe this one-off show car from 1970 resides in Luton!

An Original HB Vauxhall Viva De Luxe with Just 49,294 Miles and Three Owners - SOLD!
SOLD - SIMILAR REQUIRED CALL 01733 425140 An original HB Vauxhall Viva de Luxe with just 49,294 miles and three owners. EQUIPMENT Chrome bumpers, chrome window trim, Deluxe rear badge, opening ventipanes, twin visors, front door courtesy switches, dash-top ashtray, rear ashtrays, aluminium kick plates, deep-cowled safety padded facia, full-width parcel shelf, glovebox, adjustable face-level ventilation, heater with two speed fan, screen wash, headlamp flasher, oil pressure warning light. Dealer fitted options; chrome wing-mirror, locking fuel cap. EXTERIOR This vehicle still retains its wonderful period colour of Pampas Green, (Code 1GN) and suits the sleek smart styling the HB model offers. Paint preservation touch-ups by the previous keeper are noticeable but reveal the honest nature of the car and the fact that all the panels are factory original with no weld repairs. Surprisingly no dents or dings are evident but the paint has worn thin in areas. Replacement front and rear window rubbers have been fitted but the side window rubber trim is original and slightly perished. The chrome bumpers have a mirror shine and model badges remain intact. A remarkably preserved example. INTERIOR The upholstery in this unrestored Viva is finished in Fern Green Vynide, (Code U597) and matches the green seat belts, green dash, green door cards and green edged tailored carpets! The seats and door cards are immaculate and all the interior controls and gauges function correctly. The carpeting has lost its green dye and is now a straw colour and the 'C' pillar roof trim is damaged. The woven draft excluding door strip on the driver's door has lost shape in one small section. Standard Vauxhall de Luxe trim as it left the factory. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION A 4 cylinder 1159cc engine producing 56.2bhp at 5400rpm hums along perfectly having covered such few miles. The inclined valves operated by short pushrods and rockers enables swift progress. The 4-speed gearbox offers neat, stubby shifts that work like a switch. Marvellous. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Pressed steel wheels have perfect tri-nickel chrome plated steel hubcaps and are shod in quality new 155/80 R12 tyres. Hydraulic 8 inch drum brakes all round with two leading shoes at the front offer assured stopping power with a progressive feel. HISTORY FILE Supplied new by Vauxhall agents, Sharpes Garage on the 15th April 1969 to Mr Slater who remained the first owner for 23 years. Sold to the second long term custodian and owner for 15 years, Mrs Spence, who continued to enjoy the car for weekend outings before Vauxhall enthusiast Mr Walter purchased the car in 2007. This car has remained in the Nottingham area all with all three owners living within a 15 mile radius. A mass of ReVival publications, (The Magazine for Vauxhall Viva Owners), show the passion and interest previous owners have for the marque. A truly wonderful, low mileage, low owner example. HPI Clear, Tax exempt, Approved Used Car Check Certificate.
