Manta GT/E breaking

Sad story on this car, was restored for a substantial amount in the late 90s for a lady who had it from new (I am sure Carl will mention the company as he has the green leather book they produced). She subsequently sold it for unknown reasons in the early 2000s to a lad who was into rallying, he had a fire and this is what is left of it being sat for 10+ years.

A real shame.

Anyway the interior is all good apart from the dash top, the drivers seat is missing but the rest are present & it’s a non sunroof.

 All parts available and can be collected from Lancashire or posted out. 

Thanks for looking.

It had a full body rebuild by jaymic in the mid '90's the total bill was around £4500. Crying shame its ended up like this.

Still there are plenty of good parts as always and everything possible will be saved

Hi Thats great, i would need postage to NI, if you could let me know how much and send me payment details.

Gerald

Just thinking the passenger side wouldn't be great on my car either, would you have a passenger side as well?

Have you any photos ?

Thanks Gerald

Cleaned inside to remove all sludge, loose rust scale and stale fuel deposits Pressure tested at the end to confirm tank is now leak free
