Manta convertible from a hatch

Recommended Posts

Just popped up on eBay an early Manta B with plastic bumpers, started life as a hatch but was changed into a convertible in the 80's.

Its the only Hatch convertible i have ever seen and has been done nicely. I've seen the car in the flesh and the paint is excellent, interiour is mint. Engine needs changing as after over 10 years of not running whilst trying to unseize it a piston ring was broken. The engine has been converted to a GT/e injection system.

An interesting find. Certainly something different. Could well be unique. It looks better with the roof down, but not as clean looking as a Centaur imo which looked right. The B pillars look a bit strange. 

Will be interesting to see what it sells for.

What an unusual conversion. Looks like an interesting project for someone with unusual taste! Each to their own.
