I'll be sure to snap a few photos for the garage tomorrow, although be warned, there is not much left of a car currently. Some exterior has been removed, and interior is almost completely empty, down to bare metal. Eventually the engine and the suspension whole are going to be removed in preparation for repainting. Only thing I have taken a picture off so far are the faults, and the eerily empty interior.Thank you for the kind welcome !
Welcome to our site. Although most of us here, being in the UK, have the Vauxhall branded J Car we love to see the others.
I myself have shipped parts to New Zealand and that's about as far away as they get.
If you need new parts there is an Opel dealer in Greece who pops up here. Not cheap but genuine Ascona C parts.
Hope you enjoy your visits here, we try and be a helpful bunch!
First of all, I want to express my unimaginable happiness for stumbling upon this forum. Cavalier mk2, or Opel Ascona, the brand I have are seriously underappreciated cars, and as such I'm having real difficulties finding resources to work. I look forward to using this forum, learning from it and sharing what I can.
So, my name is Marko, I'm from Serbia, and I have a 1987 Opel Ascona sedan. The engine is the type that went into Corsa/Nova, the 1.3 S, available on Ascona only in some markets... underpowered slightly, but that's in the books for the future. Car itself is decently good, floor behind the rear wheels needs quite a bit of work and a few tiny patches in passenger footwell mostly. Engine is a long story, I will explain it more closely in some other thread, but long story short, it has been completely overhauled. Dashboard foam is cracked pretty much beyond repair save for replacing all the foam on it, seats have a bit of wear, and I am aiming to reupholster a big part of the car, to rejuvenate it and make it somewhat more modern - basically introduce some more modern materials while maintaining the original shape. Overall, I can write a lot about all the little quirks, all the little upgrades and repairs I'd like to make, but let's not go into it that much here, I will make a thread and post the pictures of it. Let's just say that, once again, I'm very glad I found an active group of Ascona/Cavallier drivers, and that I'll be honored for you guys to be a part of my restoration.
Looks very tidy. Not gone far in its life as MJ's a Bedfordshire registration.
Love the luggage area carpet. Is it carpet or some other material?
Hope you decide to keep it as it would be good to have another estate in the area.
