Hi

There are plenty of hatches for sale at the moment that are in pretty good condition for around £4500.

When you say you had a soft spot for the early models do you mean the Manta A produced from 1970 - 1975 or the Manta B1 produced from 1975 - 1982

MANTA A

If that's the one at Anglia Car Auctions you have noticed it's a left hooker?

Left hooker doesn’t bother me , the condition is what counts ,  I enquired earlier , apparently it’s a genuine 2 owner car  58klm from new , cant remember if they said one uk owner from 1986 or 96 , last owner bought it from Italy from its original owne from new , all original and never been offered for sale before ,

It's a nice looking car from the photos, and I love the red interior.

If the chassis number they've put up is correct it points to the car being a late 1972 build rather than a 71, not that that's important. I might have to see if I can get a look at it next week.
