  1. Today
  2. It’s been a while. So I have most of the puzzle now sorted. I have a few last bits to get such as new brakes, pipes and other minor items and then the running gear is all done and ready to have the car lowered down onto it. Next is the engine the strip and fit all my new parts along with a freshen-up
  3. Yesterday
  4. Does the owner have no info on it Andy?
  5. Thanks, I'd seen the adverts. Im more interested in its past, who drive it, who built it, specs etc...
  6. Car and classic advert https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:khijz0mmn28J:https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1194181+&cd=11&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk&client=firefox-b-d
  7. Nice car - I'll have to get myself another rally car sometime to take away the temptation of converting this one.
  8. Seems it's an unknown car then, with the lack of any replys or info ?
  9. It's been for sale for a while and will probably be for sale a while longer at that price. I'm not saying it's not worth it just that there can't be many Manta lovers with a spare £39k.
  10. It is nice though! its a lot of money but on the other hand - is it? Its a brand new Manta, the only weird thing about it is that it has green glass and not bronze, maybe they totally phased it out by 89.
  11. Yes found that one 97km Looks spotless https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1173085
  12. Last week
  13. Had a look on Honest John Manta for sale at £39,000 . Very nice car but £39,000
  14. That hatch looks like a good buy to me. Nice colour too
  15. Hi Martin, Manta has been on Trade Me for a while now with not much interest and no bids. Haven't seen any Mantas for sale in NZ recently except for a similar year / model non-runner with quite a bit of rust that was for sale for ages at $1500.00 Difficult to say how much the vendor has in mind, I would hazard a guess the reserve would be somewhere around $7000 - $8000 but who knows. As there seems to have been little interest may get it for not much more than the starting price. I have always had my heart set on a coupe but must admit I keep looking at this . Thanks for the welcome Gary
  16. I do like that white exclusive on those wheels👍
  17. 3 very tidy looking Coupe's and one not so tidy for sale in the Emerald Isle: https://www.donedeal.co.uk/motor?words=Opel Manta
  18. Pud the wood, I'm racking my brain on your identity. John Wooding by any chance? I was in sales but spent a good deal of time with the guys in the workshop. I'm still in touch with Kim and his wife Sandra and visited with them the last time I was home in October of 2018. I'm also still in touch with Alan Sharp and also visited with him during my 2018 trip. I'll send you Kim's contact info in a private mail. Here's an oldie for you......
  19. Hi and welcome to the forum Derek is also in NZ he seems not to use the forum anymore but I have him as a Facebook friend https://mantaclub.org/profile/4783-opelmantagsi/
  20. That's a tidy looking car. Interesting being an 88 GSi Hatch. More so in Dolphin Grey if I'm not mistaken. How much do you think it will go for? Starting price is circa £2.5K.
  21. I have a nice coupe for sale on here in the cars for sale section. Still needs work, but is probley as good of shell as you'll find for a project car. And I've priced it to sell.
  22. Doubt it's your one mate it was built over 25 years ago
  23. Thanks, love living here I must admit although lots of things I miss about the UK. I live in Hatfields Beach, a little place around 40mins from central Auckland. See link below of Manta currently for sale in NZ for anyone who may be interested. https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/opel/auction-2490675852.htm?rsqid=392612da58c442dba8706c72c3cbeec7-001

  26. It appears to be in a "bad" state, Rusted and probably hasn't been used in years:~ Let's see if there is a response
  27. I always get paranoid when I see a black shell on Q plate. Would love to know chassis number.
