Chevette Jubilee To commemorate the Queens Silver Jubilee in 1977 the main Vauxhall Dealer in Chester came up with this special edition which was the first by any car manufacture to introduce a Jubilee Special. The car is based on a standard Chevette L’s mechanicals but came with various distinctive exterior and interior extra’s. The car was painted metallic Silver with a contrasting royal blue side flash and vinyl roof/tailgate cover. The car came equipped with a Britax Sunroof, extra door mirror, mud flaps, wheel trims, locking filer cap and overrides front and rear. Only 25 of these cars were built but as demand was high so an additional batch of cars were built. Cost was £2,540.00. Do any of these cars exist? Did you have a Chevette Jubilee and have a picture of it you can send us to use on the site? SMT Chevette Ecosse This is a special edition by SMT a Vauxhall Dealer in Scotland.
