The Multipla's Replacement! 1.2 4 Speed Corsa Baby!

Just picked this up...











4 Previous Owners, 118k, T&T til June, all for £250!

Must say its very clean for the mileage, its got a bit of surface rust, but the sills/arches/engine bay look clean,


Plans:

De-rust,
De-badge,
Slam it, 80mm+ springs with good shocks,
GSi interior (already agreed to pick up),
Astra GTE teardop alloys repainted white,
Back to black the bumpers :lol:,
Black Angesl (already got),
Astra GSi steering wheel,
White Veccy Handles (already got),
Mk4 Astra Side reps

And enjoy the awesomeness that is a 1.2 engine on a 4 speed box!

4 speed? Another example of Haynes Lies... They say the Corsa comes with a 5 speed manual or 4 speed auto. No mention of a 4 speed! Although, a local chap had a Corsa 1.2 and said it was 4spd on a K Plate. I said he was just missing where 5th was!

It will be nippy thing for a 4 speed gearbox. Good buy there Krow. Very reliable motors these. I drive the van version in 1.4 and i trust it to go anywhere. Plus its white so its a bonus. RESULT

Bet your over the moon with it

Yeah quite chuffed, the lack of power-steering will be a shock to the system but got quite a few bits for it at the spares day:
Backbox,
GSi interior,
Alloys,
Rev Counter Clocks,
Gaitor,
Shocks,

am hoping to bring it home either tonight or tomorrow so I can start on it

Thanks for the comments guys, well finally got it home from my garage on monday after the multipla went, and just was i was moving it out fo the garage, bang, the garage door slams onto the rear quater, completely winddless day as well, so have to fork out £30 to have it pulled out :doh:

Anyway got the wheels changed....





(Yes 1 is still silver),

Then got onto the GSI inteiror I picked up for £25....

Old seats...






New rears....



Only just fitted the fronts so no pics, but what an improvement!

So, future plans...

Lowering 60mm, collecting the springs tonight/tomorrow,
Get a tyre on a 5th wheel,
New Gaitor (already got)
Good Service (A/F, O/F, P/F, plugs and oil for £25)
Fit a new Cambelt
New Clocks and Steering Wheel (Got)
Fit DVD player.
De-Bump
Tidy exterior and then it'll be done unless anytihng else pops up I fancy, aiming for it all to be done by Sunday, Tall order i know!
