Oxford Diecast Vauxhall Firenza Sport SL Bluebird - 1:43 Scale

Product Code: VF001

Another popular car from the 1970s joins Oxford’s 1:43 scale automobiles series. The newly tooled Vauxhall Firenza 2-door coupé is based on the car which Vauxhall introduced in 1971 as a development of the Viva – already in Oxford’s 1:43 scale series of cars. A year later, Vauxhall made some changes to the car, including the introduction of the top of the range 2300 Sport SL model, which they unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show and which featured a 2279 cc engine and the highest level of trim. The 2300 Sport L was the only version of the Firenza to feature the seven dial dashboard with speedometer, clock, rev counter, fuel, oil pressure and water temperature gauges and battery charge indicator. The engine was an inclined 4-cylinder with single overhead camshaft and twin Stromberg carburettors. The oversquare straight four engine was renowned for its big torque curve, making the car very flexible and easy to drive. The interior was fitted with bucket seats front and back to carry four people. The centre console with heater controls and warning lights was quite distinctive and considered luxurious for its time. The Firenza was manufactured until 1975 at the company’s Ellesmere Port facility in Cheshire, when it was succeeded by the Opel Manta.
Our model, registered GRD 41, appears in bright blue with black chassis, wheels and grille and a wealth of silver and chrome trim. A sporty pale blue stripe runs the length of the sides and the Vauxhall Firenza Sport SL marque and Vauxhall badge are intricately printed on the front/rear of the body. The interior is moulded in black with grey carpet and silver finished door handles and gearstick column.
Oxford have also incorporated a second tooling variation to the dashboard and steering wheel to allow for the introduction of the Firenza 1800 SL a little later on, which is something else to look forward to.
