Nice Car Harry, hope you are keeping it that way and not modding it to much :wink:

those over-riders on the bumper ( imagine you'll not be wanting to sell them ).


I have a set of these if you are interested, they are off a Chevette hatch. Make me an offer?

I won't bother naming a price as I only seem to offend when I do!!!

Nice, I like those mirrors. I'd like to do something about the black plastic items on my chevette. Where did you find it?

Ooooh that's a little honey, nice job. Rare car now, at least it'll be loved (I hope - not planning to autograss it anyway?). Look forward to seeing more pictures.

Before you say anything..... no i cant spell or type!

The post above is my own personal opinion, it is not meant to upset or cause offence, if it does bugger off.

Hey that looks like one very sweet and straight kadett coupe.
Same colour as mine, although mine is somewhat more rusty and its got a light blue bonnet at the moment. Bet your interiors a lot better than mine too.
So you know,......... if you fancy getting rid of the bonnet or the interior at any point, then let me know, eh.:lol:

Dribble, dribble... What a bevy of beautiful coupes ! :D
Good work 100er & Opel-valver !
Mark, don't ever worry about offending me over a price. If I don't like the price I'll just politely decline...simple :wink: . To be honest they would be for purely cosmetic reasons so what are we talking about ? Just overriders (are they detachable ? Never seen any up close), bumpers (is the chrome real nice) , do they have mounts ? (& are chevette & kadett mounts all the same?). Depending on answers to above (sorry for so many questions, a photo might be easier !) I will come up with a price that I hope doesn't offend you. Ta

Thanks for the comments, chaps. Unfortunately I think the photo flatters it a bit - it's had paint, and you can't see the worst point, which is the OSR wing - it's been hit at some point, and not repaired too well, so the panel's pretty ripply forward as far as the rear quarterlight, and there's a ding in the rear valance. Still, it's nothing a bit of tapping up and a skim of slop won't cure. Although there's surface rust, as far as I can see there's no real rot in it at all.

I'm still coming to terms with the £500 or so it owes me - never thought I'd pay that for a coupe rolling shell!

And just to add to the showing off, I'd better repeat the photo of my first coupe....

Yes, just over riders and they are detachable. The bumpers are knackerd on the scrapper, so no good to you. If the bumper mounts are the same as an Opel then I have some of those too.

Okay Mark here goes......
How does £20 & postage sound for the 4 over-riders ? I
wont need bumper brackets. If this doesn't sound a fair
price (I don't know how rare these are) let me know.
Cheers
