For Sale - Vauxhall Carlton Mk1 Haynes Manual - £12.50

This Haynes Manual is for the Vauxhall Carlton Mk1 (pre-facelift) and I would assume the Opel Rekord E series too. In true Haynes style, it has a rather fine cutaway drawing by Terry Davey of the Vauxhall Carlton Mk1 4 door saloon the cover.

This particular version is a later version of the manual and covers the period from October 1978 to October 1986. There are supplementary sections which cover later additions to the model range, such as; the 1.8 litre O.H.C. engine, 5 speed gearbox, overdrive unit, fuel injection system, electronic ignition and floating brake calipers. There is plenty of information regarding the 2.2 litre capacity version of the cam-in-head (C.I.H.) engine. A unit that was a popular upgrade for Opel Mantas and Asconas and an easy swap with the smaller capacity C.I.H. engines used on so many Vauxhalls and Opels from the late 1960s on.

Although only slightly more powerful than the 2.0 litre version, the 2.2 litre C.I.H. engine has a much greater torque output, even in standard guise. It was also a good engine for tuning which could generate around 200 bhp, not bad for the period. Today there are no doubt engines of much smaller capacity that can generate these sorts of power levels, but I'll wager they don't have the instant response or low down grunt of the 2.2 litre C.I.H. engine fitted to the top end versions of the Vauxhall Carlton Mk1 which was a re-badged version of the Opel Rekord E series.

It is in really good condition, just the odd oily fingerprint here and there, otherwise it is as clean as a whistle.

It is priced at £12.50, which includes delivery to a UK address.

I can send to Europe or even Worldwide too, but please ask for a quote first as rates vary greatly between countries and are prone to rapid price fluctuations. Due to PayPal terms and conditions an item has to be sent by a tracked service to your registered PayPal address.

Original service manuals for classic GM vehicles are not exactly plentiful in the UK, stocks are very limited and I will not be replacing them, so don't hang about if this is what you need for your project.
