Hello all,

Richard here from Cape Town, South Africa.
I own a 1975 Firenza 2.5ltr 4 door saloon.





Looking forward to all the advice and info that can be gained from your fine forum.

Thanks for the add.

Hi Richard welcome to the Forum - you emailed me yesterday about a dash pad and instrument cluster for your "Firenza" - not as it makes any difference to the parts you are after but in the UK a 4 door saloon is a Viva or a Magnum depending on engine size and year.
A Firenza is the early HC 2 door coupe
- later versions were limited addition High Performance Firenza or Droopsnoot (like the Can Am in your country) followed by the Viva E coupe (small engine) and the Magnum Coupe :wink:
So your 4 door "Firenza" HC saloon could cause a bit of confusion over here :? :roll:
I see the pics show a twin dial dash which I could source for you - dash pads are more difficult a) to find and b) to courier to you.

Hi Richard and welcome,
Lovely looking car, is your 2.5ltr a slant four and judging by the pedals an automatic?

Here's some Vauxpedia info about the S.A. Chevrolet Firenza, Richard -

http://vauxpedianet.uk2sitebuilder.com/ ... uth-africa

South African HCs were fitted with Chevrolet 1959cc and 2512cc four cylinder engines in addition to the Vauxhall 1159 and 1256 OHV units. The British Vauxhall OHC slant four engine wasn't used in South African HCs.
