Full Description

An early Vauxhall Corsa LS with huge supplying dealer history and 16,779 miles.

Bodyside mouldings, grey coloured wheelarch extensions, reinforced passenger safety cell, twin side impact door bars, front seat body-lock restraint system, safety steering wheel, halogen headlamps, locking fuel filler, internally adjustable door mirrors, tailgate push lock, heated rear window, rear window wash/wipe, multi-functional display, Philips SC201 stereo cassette, courtesy lights, illuminated glove box and load area. Factory options; Metallic paintwork. Dealer options; Mud flaps, tailored rubber over mats.

Finished in factory cost optional and rare Frost Blue Metallic, (Code 32L), the paintwork is quite incredible with a bright uniform shine and glossy polished finish. All body panels are pin straight and there are no bodywork issues and paintwork imperfections worthy of mention other than a miniscule ding to the edge of the front passenger door. The car has covered just 16,779 miles from new and has always been garaged, and the condition clearly reflects this even down to the very clean underside. All bumpers and trim are fully intact and even the wheel arch extensions are not sun-bleached, almost unheard of on a Mk1 Corsa and another clear sign of indoor storage! There is a very faint rub to the offside front bumper corner. Supplying Vauxhall main dealer number plates and rear screen sticker remain fitted and even the mud flaps retain bright white griffin badges. Rarely found in such exceptional and untouched condition and ready for the Festival Of The Unexceptional.

This LS specification example is trimmed in original Grey Tivoli Fabric, (Code W8X), which is beautifully clean. The seat bases and bolsters are unworn but there is a tiny nick to the driver’s seat upper bolster and the fabric to the door cards is slightly shrunken. The carpets are super clean and remain protected by Vauxhall rubber over mats. The headlining is perfect as in the fascia, displays and switchgear. All controls, functions and displays are perfect in operation including the Philips SC201 stereo cassette with separate display screen. If you close your eyes, take a deep breath you can even get that new car waft! A lovely period Vauxhall interior, comfortable and functional.

The time tested four-cylinder 8V engine is renowned for longevity, liveliness and low running costs. The 1.4i (Hi-Torq) unit fitted to this LS develops 59bhp with a top speed of 96mph and 0-60mph in 14 seconds. Fastidious Vauxhall main dealer servicing and ultra-low miles mean the car performs impeccably and the engine bay is super clean with all factory labels, plates and stickers intact. The five-speed manual gearbox is taut and light.

The standard 13 x 5J wheels wear the original LS full wheel covers in superb condition with no cracks or kerb damage. Originality seekers will be pleased to see the factory fitted Michelin MXT 80 145/80 R13 tyres which retain excellent tread but should be renewed on age grounds if the car is to be used extensively. The factory supplied spare wheel has never seen the road and still has tyre nobbles and coloured banding within the tread. Dual circuit and servo assisted brakes with 9.3in ventilated front discs and 7.9in rear drums performs perfectly.

Registered new on the 13th November 1993, this car is an early example with the model being launched the previous April. The supplying Vauxhall Main Dealer was Allams of Epson. Incredibly the car has benefitted from majority servicing and maintenance by the supplying dealership and there are 16 stamped entries in the service book from Allams of Epsom as well as accompanying invoices! Further stamps and evidenced servicing show just how well maintained this Corsa is and the most recent full service and cambelt change was carried out in June 2024. In June 1996 and at 5,162 miles, the speedometer assembly was changed at the supplying dealership. The new unit was set to zero and now reads 11,617 miles making the current mileage at 16,779. The speedometer change is documented with a main dealer invoice in the history file and an entry in the service booklet. The service history file is huge and primarily consists of a massive collection of main dealer invoices. The original document wallet holds all handbooks, guides and dealership literature and both sets of keys. There is also the new car invoice when new. Completing the history file is a Corsa range brochure. A wonderful example in every respect and sure to absolutely delight the next owner and retro car lover!

MOT June 2025, HPI Clear.
