Vauxhall Carlton GSI 3000 24V
No reserve

Last. but not least - here's one of the best performance saloon of its type and era, a fact that will have passed many of you by. But the Vauxhall Carlton GSI 24V is a car of rare and genuine ability, being able to outpoint rivals such as the BMW 535i and Mercedes-Benz 300E on the road. Okay, this one's no time capsure, but it wears its 130,000 miles well, comes with 12 months' MoT, and still looks good today. If you're at the auction and find yourself with a bidding paddle, and in the fortunate position of having a few spare quid, this might well land your way - and boy, will you have some fun.
