Vehicle History

Remarks

The accompanying General Motors of Canada build sheet details the myriad options and the original colour of Granada Gold Metallic and Parchment vinyl interior with black dashboard. The black coachwork was re-sprayed from the Gold in 2005, suiting the car perfectly and the interior was re-trimmed in white vinyl and light coloured "Tweed" cloth. The history file is impressive not just in weight but in detail and shows the fastidious maintenance lavished on the car over the years, incredibly the original service book and handbook have survived. A valuation letter by JH Classics from September 1991 mentions a previous fitting of a replacement engine and gearbox. The vendor surmises the engine is period correct and for such a big car the turning circle is "amazingly good...one finger driving."

A unique car in so many way it is offered from an extensive private collection of 30 cars with an odometer reading of some 47,000 miles at the time of cataloguing. The capacious boot could do with re-trimming and the car is supplied with a UK V5C and the aforementioned history file which is as detailed as it is hefty.
