Vauxhall Cavalier Mk2 : Videos

It’s got pulling power…

Vauxhall Cavalier Mk2 Pulling Power advert

Vauxhall was onto a winner with its Cavalier Mk2, but the switch to FWD was a radical step for the conservative company, and it wasn’t sure that its clientèle would understand the advantages. And this advert was designed to explain at least one of them…


  1. I wonder why they don’t make car adverts like that any more…

    Anyway, cheers for posting this one – I’ve sat here watching all manner of old car adverts courtesy of the links that come up on YouTube videos. My personal favourite is the Cavalier Mk3 advert where they’re driving around crashing into each other to Peter Gabriel’s Sledgehammer. That takes me back… Memories, eh? 🙂

  2. Funny that FWD was still such a big deal in 1981, isn’t it?
    Twenty-two years after the Mini.
    Forty-seven years after the Citroen Traction Avant.
