1987 Manta Gte Track Car


Recommended Posts

Hi, up for saleis my 1987 Opel Manta GTE Track/Rally Car. I originally purchased this car to compete in road rallies whilst living in Wales at university. Unfortunaltey, time and money became an issue and the car never got used for it's true protential. The car was purchased similar to how you see it today, I have added bits along the way to improve performance. Sadly, I have too many toys and not enough time, and house buying has come into the picture, so the manta has to go towards the deposit.

Generally an alround brilliant car, lovely to drive, but every great car has some downsides...

The underside is very good, had it up on a ramp and stone guarded it 3 years ago. However the body panels are showing the car's age. There is rust to the lower corners of the rear arches, top of the front left wing and bottom of the rear valance. The car has had welding in the past and has had replacement skirt trim fitted, which requires painting.

It comes with all the interior parts (carpet, parcel shelf supports, seatbelts) and rear seat for road rallying, probably lots of other bits I've forgotten.

Comprehensive service history, and flew through all its MOTs whilst I've owned the car (3/4 years), sadly as much as I don't want to sell, needs must.

The car is worth atleast twice what I've started the auction at in parts.
