Touring Car legend John Cleland’s ex-works Vauxhall Cavalier Mk3 Touring Car is to star on the Cavalier and Chevette Club’s stand as part of their celebration of 40 years of the Vauxhall Cavalier Mk1 and Vauxhall Chevette.
The car, which is chassis no.1, is now owned by Jim Pocklington and will be part of the Club’s stand which will be packed with unique and one off cars. The oldest Cavalier Mk1 LOU 848P will be on the stand, this being the 1975 Earls Court Motor Show Car, and the oldest Vauxhall Chevette still on the road will accompany it.
The one-off Vauxhall Cavalier Mk1 Sports hatch ‘Silver Aero’, which was exhibited at the 1980 NEC Motor Show in the same hall it is in this year, will be joined by another of Wayne Cherry’s creation’s the Vauxhall Chevette ‘Black Magic’. This car was once Wayne Cherry’s own personal car.
Club PR and Media Officer Kevin Bricknall says “To have such rare and unusual cars on the stand is excellent, especially as it is 40 Years of the Cavalier Mk1 and Chevette this year. We will be celebrating this over the three days of the event so why not come a long to our stand 3-485 in Hall Three to find out more.”
