Manta A back on the road

Recommended Posts

Good morning Manta club

Hopefully i should have my Manta A back on the road shortly although i am looking for a new acelarator cable if anybody can help me out

I owned a Manta A sr back in the late 70s i could not resist this car when i saw it at auction 3 years ago hoping to have it out for early August

Regards Alan

Hi Andy

Yes that would be great  other things I am looking for include a correct air filter housing and a rear bumper rubber overrider if you have any of these other parts as well Andy I would be very grateful as I did not realise have difficult it is to get parts  for the Manta A

Please get back to me with cost and postage and how you require payment

Hi Alan

I will have a rummage about on Saturday as i will be doing a bit of work on mine and send you some pics. I dont have much in the way of other stuff for the A as kept all the bits i needed for mine and sold the rest a few years ago and yest parts are hard to get! It seems that trim and interior parts are the hardest to find. Try german ebay as they seem to be selling a lots more stuff now and there is a facebook page that seems to have a few good bits from time to time

I have a couple of  gaskets that fit yours if you are looking for some spare ones.

and i have a few places that you can get parts for the A from on there.

Good morning Steve

Thanks for reply i have trawled the german opel sites and can see there's quite a fair amount of parts over there as you would expect i just popped the overider on the thread in case there was a spare one lurking out there in the club it's the air filter housing i would like to source and obviously i need the acc cable before i can go anywhere but couple of club guys have now got back to me so hoping i might solve this issue other than that the car is in brilliant shape

Hi,

I might have an air filter housing, I know I did at one time, just can't remember if I threw it out! It would need a lick of paint, but you could have it FOC if you cover the postage. I'll have a look in the garage and see if I can find it.

Hi Alan,

I found the filter housing, see below, it even still has a filter in it! Is this what you need? It is in perfect condition inside and underneath, but the top will need a wirebrush/sanding down and a lick of paint. The breather pipe with it is cracked, but all the clips holding the lid on are tight and in good condition.

Regards,

Fin
