found Firenza Sport SL

Hi guys,
I'm brand new to the site, and have never owned a classic Vauxhall, but have owned various German classics from BMW's to VW's.

I have always liked the design of the Firenza, and have been casually looking for one.

I was out on my rounds on Wed this week and stumbled across this beauty, its a super rare Sport SL. Do you guys know about this car?

What do you think its worth in this condition? I want to ask the owner if he wants to sell?


How much do you think Its worth in this condition?

It's really difficult to tell - it might have a lovely solid floor, or no floor at all, or somewhere in between. It looks in quite reasonable nick, but it could be deceptive.

As Mike says its difficult to say without seeing it in the flesh and having a good poke around - its not exactly dry store - if its been out there for as long as the pics suggest it must have some major work rquired to bring it back to life. Pics suggest somewhere up to a grand - You could spend £10k to get it back together :roll:
As Adrian replied to me in 1997 when I inquired about the Viva 2300 SL saloon that I had just bought - " it is a rare car but that does not mean it is valuable" I think this one would be a labour of love :P
This is one I bought aboutr 5 years ago £450
