Description 1982 VAUXHALL ROYALE COUPE 3.0 INJECTION - AKA OPEL MONZA GTE & SENATOR

The Engine Tuning Shop
 
1982 Vauxhall Royale Coupé 3.0 Injection

Full MOT, solid, original, recent overhaul.

My Royale Coupé is in good mechanical condition with only small cosmetic belemishes for age. It has a low milage and has just been overhauled prior to an MOT which it passed with only one advisory (corrosion on front brake flexi hoses).
There are just 15 Royale models left on UK roads, of which just 2 are this rare 180bhp 3.0 fuel injection model. I've owned the car for the last seven years and have used it for shows and special trips.

I have a folder of paperwork including servicing details that will go with the car.
Engine, Gearbox & Transmission
The engine runs perfectly with no abnormal noises, smells, smokes or leaks. Being the 180bhp engine it pulls both smoothly and quickly and happily cruises without drinking petrol.
I recently reconditioned the fuel injectors and fitted new rubber fuel hoses under the car and on the rail as they had started to perish. I also replaced the spark plugs and HT leads.
The coolant, oil and filter were replaced about 500 miles ago and I've just replaced the transmission and differential oil so gear changes are smooth and quick as they ought to be.
The car starts easily enough though sometimes the starter motor sticks which requires a tap to free it. Thankfully this is easy to do as it's easily accessible in the engine bay (and I keep a mallet and piece of wood in the car for the rare times that this happens).
Bodywork & Chassis
The bodywork is in good, solid condition for the car's age (have a look at the engine bay photo for a guide) but there are scabby blemishes on the wheel arches, with the front scuttle being quite blistered. This would benefit from cosmetic repair.
The car also had its first welding prior to the MOT, which saw both sills repaired.
Interior
The plush interior is in great condition without rips or tears. The car does not smell bad or have any abnormal odours though both boot rams need replacing as they no longer support the weight of the boot or the parcel shelf.
Electrics
All electrics function correctly and no warning lights are illuminated on the dashboard. The sunroof works a bit slowly though the electric windows work as they should. Aftermarket (period) Diavia Artico air conditioning has been fitted but I have been unable to make it blow cold air.
I've fitted a new battery as the old one had lost its charge whilst the car was in storage last year and the car also has a JVC CD player fitted.
Wheels, Brakes & Tyres
The car has the original alloy wheels fitted which are in excellent condition with the original centre caps. The tyres all have several thousand miles of wear left on them though are a few years old now.
The brakes function correctly and stop the car both quickly and in a square line, though the pedal slowly 'creeps' in traffic which means the master cylinder seals ought to be replaced at some point.
The hand brake functions after just a few clicks and holds the car on any slope and the rear callipers were reconditioned a couple of years ago.
Suspension
The suspension feels smooth and tight with no knocks or 'wallowing'. The car is precise in corners and comfortable over potholes/rough ground. The front springs were both replaced as part of this year's overhaul.
Bad points
A few patches of surface rust in need of repair.

Boot rams need replacing.

Master cylinder seals a bit leaky.

Starter motor sometimes sticks.

Rear wiper needs replacing.
Good points
Very good mechanical condition.

Recent overhaul.

Low mileage.

Full MOT (November).

Solid and original condition.

A rare car that attracts attention at shows and is well worth keeping on the road.
Notes
This is my own personal car and questions/inspection are welcome prior to sale, but please - no timewasters.
I will only accept cash on collection or bank transfer as a means of payment for my car.
