Recommended Posts

Why is this car being broken for parts,this is the one out of total vauxhall i think? this would make a great car for any manta lover, those stickers will not last long with a heat gun on them. Nabybody shed any light on it? Dan.

It's a bit odd how he's titled it breaking for spares and then gone on to describe the car for sale as a whole. I imagine he wants quite a lot for the entire car so he's open to discussion if anyone wants the engine and box or whatever. As it's still an unfinished project it isn't going to be worth quite what he's after, as a guess!

I remember this one when the Total Vauxhall chap had it at billing, not on the clubs field. It still had the 1.6 CIH and looked a lot more standard, apart from the GTE kit which its had for years and he had some even bigger wheels than the current ones which were revolting.

It's not uber far from me either. Shame there's no indictation of price apart from the 99p washer jet.

YUP! Total Vauxhall / Staff car one of many owned and mods re Barton Brisland mag Editor OR WAS not waring thi cap any more so looks like interest has flown oot thi window on the Manta.A good few articles were published re mods done and ongoing to this car through the TV publications. Also shown at PV looked nae bad in the flesh either will be a shame to see it broken just needs yon ridiculous decals removed.Hope it finds a new home, or even better donate to the O.M.O.C for a new home.

Its back on again, HERE

Was apparently removed for being in the wrong section, which will prob happen again as its still in the wrong section :rolleyes:

Strange if he's doing that to save on the e-bay fees, as its cost him twice to list it so far.

Considering it was half price listing fees in the car section this weekend, and thats the only section where there isn't a sale price percentage taken by e-bay

He would have been far better off listing it correctly ;)

Another 'fad' manta owner............ No use for it now as it's not needed to keep the odd manta owner buying the mag. Take the barry stickers off for gods sake if you buy it and burn the barry steering wheel. car looks quite solid as it's an early one though

Seems a shame that he is now getting rid just because its not doing its 'job' anymore. I hope a club member buys it really, at least that way it would be saved and loved. I would have it but my Mrs has now limited my quota to 4! Just bought another coupe she doesnt know about so thats 5 already!!:D, its gonna hit the fan at some point!!

Its only about 15 miles from me. Always liked the orange. A weekend of wiring and welding and this would be done. Have to see how high it goes. I would remember to put the ziebart back on the wing that he's started to scrape off. It's there to stop it rusting not be pretty. Mantas do love to rust.

You can get away with an ecotec pipe instead of the sfi box so the bonnet willl shut as well cant you?.
