1995 Vauxhall Corsa 1.4Si GLS 4 speed

Untitled design1

The front-wheel-drive Corsa A was introduced by Opel in 1982 to replace the rear-wheel-drive Opel Kadett and Vauxhall Chevette. In the UK, it was renamed the Nova because it was felt that "Corsa" was too close to the English word "coarser."

When the replacement Model B was introduced in 1993, the Corsa name was used in the UK, and the new model was also sold under the Holden brand in Australia, as well as Chevrolet and Buick in South America and China. The Corsa B's popularity led to it becoming the world's best-selling car in 1998, with over 900,000 sold that year.

This Flame Red example was bought new in February 1995 by the late George and Irene Harding, who specified central locking and electric windows, bringing the total cost to £11,360. Known as Corrie, the car was very well looked after and has never failed an MOT test. The owners kept every MOT, service receipt, and used tax disc.

Interesting Fact

Around 4,300 Corsa GLS 1.4i models were built, with just 200 surviving and 70 on the road in late 2020. This particular example, with just one owner and 33,000 miles from new, is a rare find and a testament to careful maintenance and preservation.
