Stunning thing - had to tell the Guys to park it inside rather than leave it on the car park for the night.

Would have been a awkward conversation in the morning if it would have gone missing.

Still has the original dealer sticker and plates from Nidd Vale Harrogate

Identical to my first car. I had a phase 1 white/grey 2 tone 1400 SR.
That looks absolutely amazing!

It certainly is Frayz - not sure what it’s in for but I’ll bet our technicians will be scratching there heads in the morning when looking how to plug the diagnostic machine into it.

Wow. I remember them when they were new.... Whats the value of one of those today.??

I remember watching Harry Metcalf ringing the neck of one of these back in the day on the Rally circuit... He showed a lot of the faster machinery how its done... Sadly he was taken from us too soon.

Showing our age Guys for the ones who remember them - Not sure why the name Nova hasn't been resurrected in the Vauxhall world as they sold shit loads back in the day.

Has anyone seen the white Mk1 Astra GTE on eBay. They are very rare. I had one on an A plate back in 1985

My first car was a nova 1.3sr with the snow plough front bumper and brown interior!

spend a fortune getting it ready fof
Passing my test, mk1 Astra GTE recaro front seats, nova GTE full kit, 32/34 dmtl carb. Absolutely hated it!
Had it 2 weeks after passing my test and bought an uno turbo 1301 ie antiskid abarth which was an absolute weapon!

I can appreciate this thing has been looked after though and is now a rare thing indeed, but they were pretty rubbish back in the day! 🤣
