You don't say which kind of upright you're after, but if it's Sierra front uprights, here is the Ford blueprint

Hope that will help

Ooops! Sorry! I feel stupid with this post. I didn't get "Viva" referred to the model of the car, like in "Vauxhall Viva".
This car is called "Opel Corsa" in my country. So am I half excused?

Viva and chevette are different PCD on the hub, although the uprights look similar. Viva uprights were popular in Autograss circles

Also look for Opel Manta and first Vauxhall ( RWD ) Cavalier. I think they all shared the same basic GM Europe front suspension. As a design it is a good call, more compact and lighter than Cortina. Probably like the proverbial hens teeth now though. Good luck!

Most chevette and Manta have bigger tapers for Balljoints than viva iirc and are 4 x 100mm odd whereas viva is slightly bigger imperial measurement, think maybe same as Mini?? 101.6mm.

TJ Motorsport do alloy hubs for chevette and Manta, weight saving and choices of 4x100, 4x108 Ford and Ford gp4 fittings

DopDog, I have Manta/Chevette uprights on my Cyclone. I could try and take some basic measurements in situ if it helps. What is most important to you?

HI John,
thank you for the offer, I do have a pair on my car at the moment but am looking at making another car. I was hoping to find another set of uprights but if not available I will get some fabricated and this is why i was asking if anyone had the spec as well.

again thank you for the offer.

You may find one of the Autograss manufacturers make Viva spec fabricated uprights, be right money too.

Hi, in case you are interested, I have a pair of viva hubs off my Striker
And also a set of Rostyle type steel wheels and tyres, PCD for Viva (4"?) front and Ford (108mm) rear, it took me some time to realise that they weren't the same front and back!

Let me know if your interested or would like further info - sorry no uprights though
