    Firenza on eBay

    Ebay item no. 4587179194

    As far as I know, only 200-odd of these were built with the 2.3 Bill Blydenstein engine.

    Lovely old skool cool. VX's answer to the Capri, but it never got the commitment from Luton it deserved, IMO

    My Dad tells me there was a petrol shortage around at the time so Vauxhall scrapped all of their performace cars at the time, meaning the Firenza and the 2.3 Magnums never went into full production.

    Not so sure about the Chevette HS and HSR, which I think did go on sale properly.

    That would be 1973, when OPEC decided not to supply countries that supported Israel during the Yom Kippur War. Fun times all round - I remember the powercuts and my dad receiving petrol ration coupons, which luckily never got used.

    The Chevette HS and HSR came some while later, however they were homologation specials needed for Rallying and IIRC only 500 needed to be produced
