shot in the dark

Recommended Posts

I am looking for my dads old manta it was a p reg unfortunalty I have no pics with the full reg in it but it was the show car for the release of the manta b at the motor show that year so had all the extras on it. I was knee hi to a grasshopper at the time cough cough !!!! remember many a trip in it. It was red with black vynle roof, runroof, red interia and had the colour coded covers over the headlights. Think it had a tow bar as well.

here are the only 2 pics I have of it. ignore me n the sis in them

No funny comments either lol



I no its a long shot without the full reg but ya never no.......

Barry Clack had a picture of one of the original road test cars which he showed me last year at Billing. He'd taken it at (I think) Bromley Pageant a couple of years ago. It might have been MOY136P but I can't remember the colour I'm afraid.

However, I don't know if the Motor Show car was subsequently used for road tests. I'll try to find all the road test car's numbers and post them if I get time later.

I really hope it does still exist for you. I love early 'B's.

Just a further thought. If you've got the negative from the first picture, you might find there's a bit more of the number on that. Quite often you find they missed the very edges off when printing pictures.
