Honda S2K Power: 1982 Vauxhall Chevette

I’m not sure where to begin with this next car, because there is a boat load of stuff to unpack. First, this is a Vauxhall Chevette, which means it left a factory in Bedfordshire, Cheshire, or Quito…UK, UK, and Ecuador respectively. However, if you think that this was just a European built Chevette, you would be wrong, becuase it was actually a design based on the Opel Kadett C. If you at all familiar with the Chevette (or any version of GM’s T-platform sold around the world as a Kadett, Gemini, or 500) then you will understand why just about ever part from the factory was replaced in this next car with stuff like a F20C inline-4 from a Honda S2000. The seller is asking a significant $10k premium from when it was last sold on that expensive car site for $16k in May of 2021. Find this 1982 Vauxhall Chevette offered for $25,900 in Little Elm, TX via faceinflation marketbreak.

It kills me to list this car for sale but I’m buying another car and need to free up some space/cash.

This car was built by about 11 years ago. The chassis, drivetrain, suspension and most of the interior are from an AP1 Honda S2000. Everything was custom fabricated and it would cost double my asking price to duplicate this car today. The engine is completely stock except for a cold air intake. Everything works- ice cold A/C, heat, power windows etc. I just installed new Fifteen52 Tarmac Rally wheels and Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires. Also comes with the original S2000 wheels and Toyo R888’s. Runs and drives great. Super fun and responsive and you would not believe the amount of thumbs up this car gets. Not much out there that’s this unique, usable and just plain cool for the money. Clean and clear title in my name.

See a better way to drive something silly?
