A Series Manta Redtopification Kit


Recommended Posts

Okie dokie chaps, I'm going in a different direction with my A Series so my entire XE kit is for sale.

It comprises of:

-Manta B alloy engine mounts with Cortina rubbers

-'Big Wing' sump and oil pick-up

-Getrag 240 5-speed gearbox in fine working order with custom altered gear lever to fit A series centre console

-Modified A series gearbox mount to accommodate the above, bolts straight on

-CUSTOM PROPSHAFT fits the Getrag gearbox and the A series rear axle, modified and balanced by Commercial Propshaft Services of Team Valley

-Nearly new clutch for an XE, only had about 1000 miles usage and is perfectly adequate, never slipped for me.

I think that's about it. At the moment I'm just gauging interest, its all still on the car. If I get a firm offer I can have it all off in a weekend.

Remember this is a complete kit of everything you need to put an XE in your A series. All the faffing about is already done at no small expense, try pricing up a custom propshaft! The engine is there but has a cooked head gasket and the head is warped.

Offers around 595 quid so I don't have to split the bits for the escort crew. Can post the lot, courier, whatever you want.

Hi all, I'm sorry for not answering many of your requests, when there was no initial interest, I put the manta to the back of my mind and got on with other cars. I still have the complete car which I intend to take down to a bare shell then rebuild as a track car using a completely different engine and driveline.

This means the kit is still available, including the inlet and carbs.
