    Default Calibra V6

    Sold my Mondeo TDCi a few weeks ago (no longer needed it really with recently buying the Vectra C) so decided that I needed something to occupy (what little) spare time I have, so purchased a project Calibra.

    Its a 2.5 V6 and its not perfect, it does need work doing to it but its nothing major that I don't mind having a bash at myself.

    Long term plans are Vec B GSi alloys (I was leaning towards Phase 2 but im thinking Phase 1's might look better?) with the possibility of putting a 3.0 engine in also...

    Current plans however are to get the interior up to scratch (front seats looking a bit tired as are the door cards so trying to source a good nick cream leather interior) and also replace the backbox as its too low (hits speedbumps) and too wide that its knocking against the suspension strut. Oh, and the towbar needs to come off too!

    Couple of minor mechanical glitches to sort also but once they are sorted I should get it to PVS (despite a seat with a big hole in it and a clanking backbox )

    Get it back to a genuine standard state (anti chav lol!) and you will have a sought after motor!, not many un-molested examples left these days. Always loved the calibra (in standard form). I have heard that the 2.5 V6 Calibra/Cavalier is actually a quicker car than the 2.5 V6 Vec B!

    I'd agree with the chav comments! I do think the wheels quite suit it though.

    The speakers ill probably go at some point but nothing wrong with the gear knob

    Everything else will pretty much stay the same bar the backbox (gonna stick with the same style just a bit smaller) and probably different alloys.
