Recommended Posts

Sorry dont know where else to put this but been away from the manta scene for a few years can someone help value my 400 its fjz400 some will prob know the reg number for those who dont its a fully resto'ed 400 imported by myself in 2003 and completly restored with all new panels and kit with no expence spared. The car is as good now as ever and would still be able to compete in any concours..

For those who dont know its won at Billing a few times and also was 2nd at the southern classics event losing to an e-type with only 70 miles on it and has also won at the national old skool fords concours.

The car comes with a spare package of roof panel,both rear 1/4,nosecone,bonnet,innerwing left and right,a posts,both doors,bootlid,rear panel all above are new gm items along with that new interior front and rear seats and also around 20meters of blitz cloth again originals not repo stuff,, new billet cams,pistons,rods,rings,gaskets and loads of other engine bits and new loom and ecu,inj relays and loads of other bit also new 10'' rear wheels front 8'' and tyres to suit all new yokohamas avs semi comp inters and prob loads of other bits ive forgotten but you get the idea if its not avalible then Ive got it..

I want the car to go complete with spares so can anyone help value this lot as an idea the car was valued in 2005 at £45k for insurance. Cheers for any help

Tough question indeed........

The spares are worth quite alot on there own in fairness.

My 2 cents worth is basically that i own one myself. It's a one owner from new which i am lead to believe is the only one owner in existence left. It has a complete and i mean complete service history from new including original bill of sale, import papers etc etc, basically everything from new. It also has had a brand new engine rebuild costing over 5k with 0 miles done since rebuild. It doesn't need any welding whatsoever so which is nice. Really only needs a top coat of paint which i reckon will cost between 3 - 4k to be done right. Interior is mint and it came to me with the original irmscher 400 kit. When all is done and she is rebuilt to concours condition I value her at about 30k stg.

Cheers Brian
