  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Opel manta Rally car

    This for sale topic may not yet available be for your usergroup
  4. 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
  5. Manta GTE (15 years on)

    Great stuff there dan...she still looks nice n shiney topside it has to be said.....
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Rothmans Ascona 400R

    Your absolutely right it never will be the genuine article,but it sure as hell is an outstanding effort at being so. As for the five stud thing,for me its just adds to the illusion of the genuine article..i may have ocd lol,....does not make or break the overall appearance of car at all. Not very often you see a two door scone come up for sale let alone a works rep.
  11. Rothmans Ascona 400R

    The seller could be just testing the current market place to be fair,although I think it has been offered for sale before now. Open to offers so may be able to bag it for 20k or less depending on interest...its fair to say its had a ground up proper full rebuild and that would surely cost a lot more than he his asking if done by a pro outfit
  12. Rothmans Ascona 400R

    Is that one of clives washer bottles I spy in the engine bay,or a poor imitation perhaps
  13. I have to say that's an awesome bit of kit
  14. Beyond Awesome...…….a five stud conversion would of finished it off nicely I guess,..but beggers can't be choosers as they say. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Ascona-400r/153063381330?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D49129%26meid%3Da643269e81c54d69ac4cf94ab99a15aa%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D302772811296%26itm%3D153063381330&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
