The vendor describes this 1988 Vauxhall Astra 1.3 L, registered in October of that year, as a 'very original and unmolested example' which has had three owners overall from new and shows 42,691 miles on its odometer ‑ which is believed to be genuine.

The car's first owner kept it for 24 years until 2012, albeit with a period off the road from 2006 to 2011. It then spent from 2012 to 2021 also off the road. Some light mechanical recommissioning was carried out during October 2021, after which the car was presented for an MoT and passed with just one advisory (a rusty rear exhaust box). The work that was carried out to return the Astra to the road included a full service, timing belt and water pump change, new fuel pump, carburettor rebuild, four new tyres, rocker cover gasket and exhaust down‑pipe.

While the vendor acknowledges that the car isn't concours, he believes it to be one of the most original and solid examples still surviving, in very presentable condition throughout.

The paperwork file includes the V5, current MoT certificate (valid until October 2022) and a bill for the recent recommissioning work totalling just over £1100. There are also previous MoT certificates from 2005, 2006, 2011 and 2012, along with the original book pack with owner's handbook, audio equipment guide and service booklet stamped up to 12,270 miles in 1992.
