astrasteve23 Posted November 18, 2006 Share Posted November 18, 2006 i have just purchased a 1986 manta GT/E hatch in red. it has the standard manta 2.0 cih engine, i am planning on changing it to a C20XE 2.0 16v astra engine towards the end of next year. the car has done 104k and is in pretty good nick, the engine runs spot on and i drove it 160 miles home with no problems and didnt even use up the £20 of fuel i put in it. it has filler around the sunroof where someone has been trying to cover up the rust. rusty chassis rail on n/s where it meet bulkhead and a small patch towards the rear of the n/s sill, all these area's are common rust area's in the manta i believe. the rest of the car is spot on. oh apart from the brakes which are ****e! i will put some pics up when i take some. i plan on using it on 12 car navigational rally's through the winter.
