A Grand Monday: Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 LS

Published 08 October 2018

There’s a lot of nostalgia out there for Vauxhall’s first UK market Corsa, which celebrates its 25thbirthday this year.

Marketed as a car that made supermodels jealous, the little Vauxhall certainly looked the part, even if some of its rivals were a bit sharper to drive. Buried in the classifieds this week is a £595 example that definitely needs to find an enthusiast to love and cherish it. 

It’s not perfect – the black underseal on both sills needs thorough investigation to see what nasties it might be hiding – but it’s an astonishing car thanks to its full main dealer service history, with its last visit to a Vauxhall main agent as recently as March 2018. A car like this with a service history like that is quite an astonishing thing.

It’s a 1993 model, too, making it one of the first 12 months’ supply of Corsas in the UK. Assuming it’s not badly rotten – and the MoT history certainly has never shown any failures for corrosion – it’s a car that’s well worth buying and bringing back to top notch condition, as it won’t be long until there are hardly any left at all…

While considering Corsas check out the original Tigra (modern classic which went from original design concept to production with very few changes) or even the later version which is now a very cheap tin top coupe.
