    Re: vauxhall chevette thread

    I found this one recently. It's not British - I think its a South American model and the front is more like an Opel Kadett, but otherwise it's a Chevette as we know it. I think this looks really good. Never thought much of these cars before but this has turned me.

    I know what you mean mate, ive never been a big fan of chevettes, but it seems i was wrong about there being just hs replicas.
    I do seem to remember a blue sideskirted and bonnet scooped v6 chevette in custom car magazine around about 1987.

    hi bob....no4 & 6 is my car,no3 being its promo photo for castrol oils,no 5 was when blydenstein enineering sponsored the car fully afterwards,i got it less the 2600 motor and clutch as it was to go in a test rally car for penti arrikkalas team......see here



    no 7 was the sister car which had a 302 chevy f5000 spec motor in it and turbo 400 trans..this car got sold to a team in france and was never heard of again (i would like to know what happened to it)

    no 1 & 3 was built by dave lomas..??

    no 5 looks like a direct copy of my bodyshell less pillars but i am abit unsure of the owner/builder so will put the detective hat on and see if i can find any info as i am intrigued by this......and i have..i spoke to my dad earlier this body possibly was created by chris ison of wild honey fame using our moulds which were given to him..the car had a 383 chrysler motor...

    Yet again proof that a lowering job and set of wheels can improve the looks of a car immeasurably. the Rover V8 does't hurt either (and how clean is that engine bay?)
