want £300 for it

Ooh, I quite fancy that as a little project. Is the engine complete and is the chassis number there to eventually register it? 

Main issue at the moment though would be collecting it due to the current travel and tier restrictions, as I'm based in South Wales.

to be fair them 2.3 vauxhall engines go well. used to be a sports hatch layed up not far from me, not there now though. never liked the droop snoot front end. prefer the aggressive look of the magnum front

Oooh, behave! My old Man had an 1800 Magnum Coupe in metallic blue, it looked gorgeous. I was occasionally allowed to drive it until one day I collected it from a service on my way home from college. I was temporarily car less having written off my Mk1 Escort. There was a three lane straight on the way home so I had my foot hard to the floor straight up the middle lane showing 3 figures on the speedo, I passed one of our neighbours works vans.......... Guess who was in the passenger seat?

 I saw the van pull up across the road from home, I was out the back door, across the back field and gone. Ma said he'd calmed down about 10pm, I crept in about midnight to be told I was NEVER, EVER, driving his Magnum again.

I  remember a mate having one of the fastback/coupe ones (your top photo RallyPack2000) but I seem to remember it was called a Firenza over here?? I stand to be corrected tho'

Yes the top one is a droopsnoot Firenza (A favourite of Col's). Those are both UK cars, we never got either of them here.

Silver car is the droop snoot firenza of which only 204 were made. The estate car is known as a sports hatch ( with the snoot ) and they had a production number of 200. Which makes both of them rare cars really. As in RPs pics to see two hatches in that condition in one pic is very rare !!

I never knew they were that rare, I thought we were talking thousands not just a couple of hundred. That makes them way rarer than the old Twincam then! Were they all the same colour?

A s far as I know, the hatches were only done in cherry wine colour and the snoot coupe in silver. The hatches do have a disgusting tartan interior though which is not to my taste.

I suspected that was the case. Most seemed to be silver on the net but saw a yellow one once that was pretty sweet!

Are you sure you're not holding out on us Col? The Anglia in the background with this one has me suspicious? :wink:

Your teasing me with all these pics now, seams real that Anglia would still remain ( unless someone comes along with a fair amount of cash!) Certainly the cortina would make way for a snoot 😛

I know there are Vauxhall haters out there, as there are for most makes, but you've got to admit that, that Yellow Firenza looks as good as any mk2 RS2000 and i'd happily have it in my garage! But I also have strong feelings for a nice Chevette HSR - that would make a nice line up

Shame in a way, I think the Cortina is my favourite but know how much you want a snoot.
