  1. Mileage looks to be genuine going by the condition of the interior...no splits in the gearstick gaiter...still has the grain effect on steering wheel...and the Daytona check looks outstanding May be a non sunroof hard to tell in the pics...looks to only need a small amount of paint to make totally mint.....seems a very nice original genuine car..check it out on ebay. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/manta-gte/232953759164?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D52945%26meid%3D4710938007334db6ab371b91fe99664e%26pid%3D100010%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D202453785548%26itm%3D232953759164&_trksid=p2047675.c100010.m2109
  2. Going by its current condition it had a hard unloved 63k of use before being dry stored for 26 years....visually it looks like its done another 100k on top of that.....just noticed that the ecu is in the engine bay for some reason What would be a fair price to pay for this then about the £800 mark maybe

    Manta 400 bonnet vents

  5. From what you can see in the pics that looks eminently savable and not a breaker,it would have to be a DIY job to make it feesible though.
  6. if that could be had for 4k surely that would be a seriously good buy for someone.given its history,and regardless of that tiny amount of cosmetic work required The bread knive dislikes it simply because its red and has the devil sign reg lol.....bad omen......so basically if I bought it she would kill me
  7. Great selection of opels ,...….have to say I love that manta B blue/purple six shooter,looks like a take no prisoners absolute show car...and as for the GTE kadett ...just awesome.

  9. The black compliments the lines of the manta A really well,....the 2.2 cih is an attractive upgrade for me over whatever the size cih was originally,,,especially with the megasquirt on it..with the addition of the 5 speed box aswell...along with the better brakes suspension exhaust its good to go...happy days......I would just recover the recaro's to match the original bench rear seats to give a nice authentic period look....GLWTS ..Shug

    Manta GTE (15 years on)

    Great stuff there dan...she still looks nice n shiney topside it has to be said.....
  11. Looks good,has had a good run as a rally car at 22 years and still looks battle ready,big collection of them 5 stud wheelsincluding 16" manta 400 wheels. Wonder if those arch extensions are genuine irmscher ones as fitted to the i2800.Love the sound of the v8's but I think I would still rather have an xe on twin 40's. Could be a good buy as its got no reserve,and depending on the amount of interest it gets.
  12. No longer available for sale so may have a proud new owner. Oh yes it is still for sale,....i had a late notification come through from ebay for the previous auction.
  13. Engine conversion looks well neat,alot of work gone into this..would have to have this beast on the road though for maximum fun. Well worth the money,..i would deck it out in rothmans livery myself
  14. An amusing write-up,....check it out https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Ascona-400-starter-pack/232831480505?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D52975%26meid%3Dd4432119c5d645a29012ba58a4a5bae6%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D302787363200%26itm%3D232831480505&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Abf9ad012-80da-11e8-bbe1-74dbd180976c|parentrq%3A6dfeabc11640aa15b397c1eaffef463a|iid%3A1
