Hatch, standard tail box required

15 posts in this topic

Hi all, one of the last parts of the jigsaw in restoring the exclusive hatch I'm doing is putting a standard exhaust back on it. I have bought a brand new walker mid box but can't find a standard backbox.

Has anyone a new one knocking about or a mint second hand one?

The links to 1800 exhaust boxes all seem to be for the coupe as the part number for the walker mid box doesn't match the one I have.

Anyone help?

Cheers

Edit, just had a thought..... Are 2.0 back boxes the same? I would now think so as I've run this through my head :huh:

1.9/2.0 hatch back boxes are all the same, Kev.

8 52 373 / 90091294 (early round tailpipe type) - OCP still has 4 of them in stock at €43,88 inc VAT each

8 52 281 / 90264040 (later oval tailpipe type) - Mario van der Klundert (M&M Dronten parts in the Netherlands) has two at €114..95 inc VAT each and there are a couple of others showing in Germany.

Thank's Nick

Oh, sorry, yes - www.opel-classicparts.com. You can email them direct at info@opel-classicparts.com and address it to Frau Kohl (she "emails" fairly good English).

Cheers,
Nick

Sorry Kevin,

MantaGSI%20046_zpsafervmcn.jpg

the ingoing tube is not straight so it is a coupé one.

But I just checked the web-site of my supplier, and looks like the both versions are still available.

Can not find out what tail-pipe they have.
