Opel Manta A Series 1.9SR 1973.


Recommended Posts

Opel Manta A Series 1.9 SR in citrus yellow from 1973.

I have owned my Manta for 11 years but a recent change in circumstances requires the sale of my much cherished A series.

Very nice condition inside and out with a remote central locking alarm and immobiliser.

The engine has been bored out to 2000cc and fitted with a Piper fast road camshaft with a vernier pulley. I had the distributor rebuilt and modified at H&H ignition solutions to match the engine modifications and is fitted with an Accuspark electronic ignition system. The radiator is an Alloy unit from Flo’s. It has a Weber DGV 32/36 carburettor with a chrome pancake air filter fitted with a K&N reusable element. The alloy 2.4 rocker cover has a breather modification using a billet alloy catch tank fitted with a foam filter.

Opel Manta GTE Getrag 5 speed gearbox conversion.

Adjustable gas dampers front and rear.

13x7 ATS Classic alloy wheels.

Original interior in good condition with a later Manta B SR steering wheel fitted.

The stereo is an early Blaupunkt Wolfsburg radio with hidden lead to enable use of a personal cd or MP3 player. 

11 years of written history with receipts and manuals.

£12995 Ono. Price reflects condition, rarity and spares (listed below)
