Vauxhall Cavaliers once pounded the motorways of Britain at a time when hazel brown metallic paint and a beige interior combined to be the height of fashion.
Few have survived intact, making MHA 612V a rare breed survivor that, if it had four legs, would be loved and cherished on Adam Henson’s Cotswold farm as an example of a beast that once powered the nation!
The next owner of this motor car will have a talking point wherever it’s taken, gathering a crowd of people who once drove them or were driven in them by their sales rep / middle manager Dad. The trim level determined their place in the company hierarchy so examples like this 2000 GLS would have been the chariot of at least a senior manager had it been in corporate ownership.
However, the fewer than 68,000 miles recorded suggests that this car escaped the ravages of company hack with a rather more sedate existence. It was resprayed eight years ago, when new front wings and a front valance were fitted and it also benefits from replacement front springs, brake discs and pads, as well as a new exhaust and some work to the rear brakes. Otherwise it remains original and ready to welcome a new driver into its velour heaven, where all the instruments and fittings appear to be functioning and the original radio has survived.
The Cavalier sits on its original steel wheels and is also supplied with some spares and an original sales brochure. It has a current V5C certificate will have an MoT test prior to the sale.
