ahh, ok. 

I was at GM6 with Derek the other day and he offered me a very tidy Senator, similar age.  Didn't know if it was a desire for a big Vauxhall rather than a specific want for a particular car.

Very similar though, do they share a platform and the differences are cosmetic ?

I have acquired a lotus Carlton kit. To satisfy an itch it can be left up the farm when time and funds can get it built.

I have a super solid carlton its an '84 2.2 automatic with only 35k on it.

4 door saloon in gold

No rot whatsoever and in great condition

Previous owner has resprayed it and it still wants building back up so its a bit of a project but not a massive one.

Would gladly swap it for that manta you have

I had one of those, in green with a green interior, Auto, Left hand drive, bloody excellent waft-mobile.

What sort of money would you want for that as is ?

Not that I need any more cars, I have way too many and not enough time to do them but nostalgia is a powerful drug.

I can do it for £800 as it is paul , it really only needs the interior and doors putting back together.

If youre interested i can get some proper pics next week ?
