This brings back some memories, I had one of the first Corsa 1,3 (dutch Nova) sold in Holland, Janspeed made the first exhaust they had made for this model for me and had to borrow a car to get it made..what a lovely thing is was. I changed the carb for a kadett carb to get twin choke carb instead of the single one. I could move too. Traded it in for a Kadett 1,6 GT, which wasn't as good a car by any means..

Cheers for the comments so far

I picked up a very good condition undamaged Mk2 Nova grill and a OSF GM Wing for the GSi project!

Got 2 Sill Panels and a Battery Tray to buy next month then I think, once we sort space, the strip down can begin!

Battery Tray purchased for the car Hopefully starting the rebuild the end of November but will see how things go!

Can't wait to see it looking factory fresh again myself! Should be a good project

Yep there is a few about here & there. It's nice to see them and still drawing attention against some of the other cars these days

Nova GTE brings back memories! I had one the same as that but with the GSI alloys in 1993 when I was 18!
Would love another one.
