Many of us in the U.S. think of a perfect candidate for an LS-swap when we think of the Vauxhall Chevette. And why wouldn’t we, it’s a tried and true example of the “little car, big engine” formula. But to Vauxhall, it’s much more than that, it’s the model that was at one point the best-selling hatchback in the UK, and granted them quite a bit of success.
The celebration will take place at the Pistons and Props Motoring Festival. This is the third annual Sywell Classic and it will be located at Northamptonshire’s Sywell Aerodome from September 26 and 27, 2015. It’s the first time a major manufacturer has supported Sywell Classic, so this a milestone for the newer event, as the cars being celebrated were for Vauxhall.
There will be 20 spots in the Vauxhall Heritage Center open for Chevette owners looking to get involved. The Chevette HS2300 will be on display as well as the Cavalier Mk.1, which is also celebrating its 40th anniversary. There’s even going to be a Biggles Bi-Plane air craft on show for the attendees, along with the all-new Vauxhall Astra and Viva.
