SUMMARY

Low ownership, late eighties, GTE soft top that's been particularly well restored. To be sold with 'No Reserve'.

DESCRIPTION

  • Whilst the Golf GTi stole the headlines in the 80s, the Astra delivered value top-down motoring to the masses and the GTE was the one to have
  • This, low mileage, 8-valve example was enjoyed by just one owner for almost 30 years before being acquired by our fastidious vendor seven years ago
  • He set about a sympathetic restoration, including bodywork repairs, a full respray, a new hood and more
  • It's supplied with its original history file, the service book and even has one key to operate all doors and boot
  • Many GTEs fell under the spell of the light fingered brigade, this coveted car was almost certainly kept under lock and key and doesn't it show 
  • Offered at No Reserve, these very desirable Astra soft-tops were built in smaller numbers than the Escort and Golf and are becoming hard to find
