HSV AS­TRA

SEPTEM­BER 1989

Unique Cars - - ONES THAT GOT AWAY -

Back when HSV were strug­gling to shift un­wanted stocks of VL Group As and cash-flow was es­sen­tial, any GM-H prod­uct could be co-opted to help keep the doors at Not­ting Hill open. HSV gave its spe­cial­ist treat­ment to only 65 As­tras and of those just 30 were sedans so this is an ex­tremely rare car. There do ex­ist re­cent videos fea­tur­ing SV1800s so we know that at least a cou­ple sur­vive. The pric­ing is a guess be­cause we found none of­fered in the mar­ket for over a decade. So, would own­ers of big­gerengined HSVs want one as a run­about?
