Evaluation: Represented as one of 18 survivors out of just 33 built. Rebuilt top end and repainted eight years ago. Well cared for and clean.
Bottom Line: When was the last time you saw one of these? A homologation special introduced for 1980, the Chevette HSR built on the performance of the Chevette HS with improved rear suspension and wider wheels, which necessitated those nifty box flares, and it was powered by a 16-valve version of the Chevette’s 2.3-liter slant-four. The HSR didn’t make Chevette the first name in performance but it was a competitive rally car, especially on Tarmac events. Rally examples have sold for more than this, but the sale price here, just under the top estimate and over the Hagerty UK Price Guide’s #2 (Excellent) value, is still surprising.
