I’ve Decided to Put Up For Sale My Manta V8.

Lt77 Gearbox – Custom Propshaft

Had The Car Up On Stands Earlier, Still as Solid as When I Put her in the Garage a Year Ago!

I built the car as a track car but after spending so much time and money decided to make it road legal as well.

Mot, ran out just after I put it away in my nice dry garage, only things I think it might fail on is couple of leaks (joints) in the exhaust and possibly the emission may next tweaking.

Car is currently Sorn.

Any inspection is more than welcomed.

Asking Price £4,995

P’m for more details or contact details

Thanks for looking

Since I know the car and Jason well, I'll say for anyone looking - yes, it's awesome, and worth every penny.

Good luck mate :)

Hi Darren,

Possibly, i took it off of sale not long after i advertised it as decided to keep as such a great car.

I have bought 2 other Mantas since and one is a big restoration so i might think about selling it again. If you are interested send me a private message and we can go from there.

Forgot to mention it now has Mot with no advisories

Hi Jason, sorry about the late reply. 

I am still looking for a manta either this one or a project. I am currently building my garage to hold my manta in which is taking a lot of my time but I do understand that these don't come around very often! It's great that it has an mot, I would be very interested in viewing it if it's something you might be selling in the future?

thanks Darren
