Opel Manta 240i Historic Racer For Sale (1978)

Recommended Posts

Looking at the cab photo it looks like some sort of time attack/hillclimb race car, however its listed as a (youngtimer) racecar which doesn't seem to fit the bill on loads of scernarios, ie the glass passenger and driver windows being glass looks a bit dodgy for a racecar for a start !

Does it actually state anywhere it has a CIH engine, also no engine pictures or real info anyway.

Car comes with no papers?

It all depends on the rules the Young Timer series is run to, it might stipulate that the original glass be installed.

I would guess that it is a Cam-in-head engine, Race series like Young Timer normally specify original engines which can be modified, so a 2.4 litre would very likely be a CIH.

"Car comes with no papers" i would think this refers to either no homologation papers or no competition/race log book.

I'd like to see a full, detailed spec for this car, it might be a really cheap way of getting a very well preped Manta which could be used for many different Motorsport disciplins.
