Danish Manta B Cc Project.

Recommended Posts

I am a guy from Denmark who is getting ready to start on my manta project.


I had this manta for 8yo ago.

207203_1013562192221_9268_n.jpg

It was a 1978 with 2.0 turbo 150 hp

But it was very rusty and it was sold after about a year.

So I bought this after.

It was a 1987 1.8s GT with 2.0 CIH with 2.2 top 120hp
Lovely car without so much rust. but got family and house.
It was sold also
.

In 2007 I bought this.

It is a 1985 1.8s with 5-speed gearbox.

I would change it so that it will look like the blue I had first.
Same color, same spoiler.

But with these additions

Vectra A or Astra F board
Keskin kT1 9x16
Full black leather interior recardo from GT / E
Throttle injection system
up closable side windows behind.
2.5 "exhaust
reinforced body
60/80 lowering


But now it waits for that I have built my new garage. So I can get started.

Thank you.

Yes it was some lovely cars. But unfortunately was one of them rusty and the red, I had to sell because I got family and house ..

I have started to buy parts for it.

Have just ordered a Lexmaul front spoile and blend plate between the taillights in Germany.

At the moment I look for used Throttle from any motorcycle or BMW.

Something megasquit ECU

Irmscher round headlights, but they cost a lot, so I'm thinking about putting something else on.

I bought these parts to it.

Vectra A dashboard

Vectra 2000 grille

-60/80 Low spring with hard oil shock absorber.

Irmscher rear bumper.

Kompelt Recardo seats from the GT / E

32 cm Raid steering wheel.

Love the Borbets. It'll be interesting to see how the Cavalier (Vectra) dashboard fits as well!

Great project :) I am really interested to see how the Vectra A dash fits into the Manta — that will be very interesting.

Are there many Mantas in Denmark these days? I use to live in Copenhagen but never saw a Manta while I was there.

That dash looks well in the Manta — yours should look good when finished ;)

Out of interest, what made you want to change to the Astra dash?

Will be interesting to see it once fitted. I can't help think the mid-late 90's Vectra dashboard would look better in a Manta.

This why I love the internet. You get to see modifications that are commonplace in other countries, but not seen here in the UK.

Must admit the dash does look good and not out of place.
