Popped up on eBay again. Starting to look like a good buy at 11.5k

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F263619074374

It is a good buy considering how much money nuttynik would of put into mega manta,....but this has been for sale on and off for a while now and its been ignored,does that mean mega manta is just to extreme and well to mega.. for most folk..maybe.

For me I still like it,..but if you have noticed nik has extended the rear arches and that spoils the rare evo kit for me...however I can see why he has done it.

It's probably great fun to drive and like you say a good price considering what will have been spent. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder....I'm sure it will find a good home soon.

It should now reach its true value, but i suspect the reserve will be set higher than that.

Keeping any eye on it, I must admit to having a cheeky bid even though I have nowhere to put it :rolleyes: but it's gone beyond my rather shallow pockets now, I get he must have spent a fortune but hope the reserve isn't set too high as it's a car that deserves to be back to it's pomp and driven.

It must be at that price for the engine and running gear as there isn't much left on it that makes it a Manta, at £7000 i would be taking the money and running.

That's had a lot of work to put the B pillar back in then,  back in the "day" it was made pillarless.

Is it a re-shell or a different car ?

Agree, thought at the right price though I'd have a dabble as it would be ear to ear grin fun.

I'd take it back to a single colour for starters! anyways moment of madness has gone now and the reserve still isn't met :rolleyes:

Cheap car I would say , wheels and body kit if you can get them would be £7k .........  Body kit I priced at £3.5 k about 10 years ago . Not easy to get either wheels or kit . Having something similar myself ,I often find people either love it or hate it. It’s always interesting to hear what people think.  The v8 always goes well with this style of car , people expect it to match the looks.. Build one for less than the reserve ............. no chance !  Good luck with the sale.

Nik has put it back on ebay again with a BIN price of £12.500:)

With the big v8 and the huge kit,its well and truly in thunder saloon territory..could be turned into a stars and stripes replica maybe.B)

Wishful thinking at £12,500 no matter what it actually cost to build 20 years ago. As has been mentioned previously, I doubt he will get many offers more than £7500. More so as it needs some work done to it. It's definitely a marmite car. He would probably be better holding on to it.

on the subject of mental manta's whatever happened to this one

 

I saw the mantzel patrol car a few years ago and as far as I know still resides in the midlands,It still has the patrol theme going on but is now running a rover v8 lump.

I personally prefered it in its Fast Cars incarnation days....in the blue paintwork with the supercharged monza engine and that's the way it should of been kept,and with that in mind and the history of the car with the mag feature would of been a very desirable sellable car,more so than mega manta  perhaps.
