  1. Andy, there are only 29 left ! Thats hatch and coupes, amazing really, as they all had sunroofs, see link below, only 1 manta DL ? Rarer than a 400. https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=opel+manta&commit=Search Seriously though, how would you know! Really the OMOC should get more involved, maybe a club stats list etc. Years ago a nice club member had a exclusive register on the go, there where a few articles in the club magazine written by him this was nearly 20yrs ago, shame its all lost now.

  2. Previously owned a black 1985 GTE coupe. Loved it. It was my pride and joy and was pampered. Unfortunately in 1995 I had no option other than to sell it. When it went I instantly regretted it. Over the years I've toyed with buying another but always backed out. They just weren't my car. Image my surprise to see my old car advised on Facebook a few weeks ago. An evening of frantic messages and phone calls and I've got her back. She's a total mess but I'll rebuild her.

  5. Changed mine with the repotec ones years ago it stopped a annoying wind whistle and also seems to make the glass more secure

  6. Also 88MY Exclusive's also came in Artic White & Monaco Blue. Yes, you do recall correctly. Incidentally, the Starmist Black Exclusive's came with silver Ronals rather than the anthracite Ronals fitted to all the other colours. Presumably, Opel thought that looked better. I'd have felt cheated.

  7. I'd point blank refuse to do a colour change on a irmscher built D reg dolphin grey exclusive coupe 😂 this is one of my favourite colours and a rare car being irmscher built and not GM. only built by irmscher for one year if I'm correct and was then only available in monaco blue and dolphin grey, they came with bronze glass and orange piped seats rather than the green glass and red piped seats. The car will be for sale once finished and painted. As a good will gesture I'll first offer it back to its former keeper. If he doesn't want it I've had interest already shown from a couple of members but nothing set in stone 🙂

  8. At that price, I suspect it will be for sale for a while. Unwelded apparently, so could be a can of worms. No sunroof by the looks of it, so that will have helped. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-manta-Gte/383746204041?hash=item59590e6189:g:HnUAAOSwTzlfdPGS
