SUMMARY

Fabulous first generation Astra GTE fully restored by Mike and Elvis on Wheeler Dealers.

DESCRIPTION

  • In the early 1980s, the Astra GTE marked Vauxhall’s first foray in to the relatively new ‘hot hatch’ segment which proved very successful
  • Offering 115bhp from a naturally aspirated 1,796cc, four-cylinder with a 5-speed manual gearbox
  • This black Mk1 had sat unused for nearly 30 years when it was discovered by Wheeler Dealer's Mike Brewer
  • Apparently they had never restored a Vauxhall before and the deal was done with A580 NHD becoming the next star of the show
  • The full story of the little Astra's return to health is best viewed on Wheeler Dealers Season 17, Episode 19 09/08/2022
  • Described by Mike as "one of the best Wheeler Dealer restorations we’ve ever done", this fabulous Astra is now offered for sale
