Wish you all the best in your search for a Manta coupe, something will pop up eventually, I’ll keep a look out and if I see anything I’ll share the information with you, what exactly are your preferences Wayne, early 2 slot b or later 4 slot? SR, Berlinetta, GT/E or Exclusive? Would you consider modified Mantas or hatches if the spec, condition and price was right?

The buy of the year for me in all the classified adds was the A reg silver Manta Berlinetta coupe on e bay mid October £8502 ( that to me is a finished price, no other work, welding, paint or trim to do so not too bad ) it looked a real fresh example.

its definitely difficult to shake off the Manta bug once it gets a hold of you, great to hear your on the lookout again 👍

Indeed. My paint work on Silver coupe is 3.5k wothought all the other work that has gone into it.

Looked great and mostly done until some investigation found lots of filer and miss alignment of panels. 

Purchased fir 1.5K seemed a bargain, but I will be close to that others selling price once finished 🙈

Just goes to show the value of the paintwork Wayne completed on the white car!

Hi Wayne, I'm contemplating selling the 1 owner black GTE coupe I have a build thread started on. I'm not sure if I'll get all the welding done first or sell as it is. I'll keep you informed. And I'll think on a price, as I already have a lot of time tied up in it  plus parts and storage fees. So I'll have a think 🤔 my new garage build has gone way over budget and new business venture for truck hire just started so thinking of freeing up some cash in the new year 👍

This is it as it currently sits
