SMC Heritage are extremely pleased to offer a highly collectable original 1985 Vauxhall Nova 1.2 L.
What can only described as a true time warp, this totally original early spec Vauxhall Nova has only covered 21497 miles throughout its 35 year life span. With just 2 owners, this Nova has been extremely well looked after and has very rarely seen poor weather, being dry stored in a damp free warm building most of its life. This is a contributing factor as to why its so well preserved and still remains in immaculate condition today.
First registered 15-02-1985 and supplied by new by City motors ltd Vauxhall main dealer in Farnborough, the car has had 2 previous owners, one being the MD of a British touring car team who purchased it to add to his private collection, hence its been in a dry storage for last 7 years! Supplied with original stamped service book showing a complete history in line with the vehicles milage and previous MOT certificates also add to it provenance. The service history was recored until 29-03-2007 @ 20833 miles, this is when the car became more of an collectors item. In line with all of our heritage vehicles the Nova will receive a full Service and 12 months MOT prior to collection by its new owner to ensure everything is as it should be and for total peace of mind.
What can we say? its totally untouched and as Vauxhall intended, this rare little car remains in as good a condition now as it did when it rolled off the production line back in 1985. Finished in gleaming Solid red with the original steel wheels and centre trim, the car still sports its factory chassis stickers. Nothing has been changed or altered making even the glass has the factory etching, this a very rare car indeed.
Again totally original and in immaculate condition as you`d expect from a 21000 mile car. Still housing its factory Philips SW/LW Radio. The seats are finished in beige and have no rips or stains to the material, they are still taught with no sagging. No silly holes in the parcel shelf either a true testament to the previous owners.
ENGINE and TRANSMISSION
Very quiet smooth running 1.2 engine that develops 51hp, allied with a F10 4 speed transmission the little Nova is a nimble car that still drives impeccably till this day. No leaks or rattles, clutch is extremely light, the car still drives like it did when new.
A great opportunity to obtain this time warp of a car, not many left in this condition and now an a true appreciating classic.
Supplied fully serviced and with 12 months MOT. Both keys, book pack and original stamped service book are all present.
