  1. Yea way forward mate iv started the ball rolling with the xe already,plod along with that as I go but the cars at the stage of the bodyshop when I get back home anyhow,interiors in getting sorted,few days work swapping the drums to discs and fitting willwoods on the front then the pros can sort the bodywork out. I got the engine running sweet and il cope with the manual choke and 50hp for now its a trip down memory lane 🤣

  2. Aw mate iv looked into the saab,the Le even the 2.4 route and risse head just wasn't willing to pay 10k for a bare head its madness. Il go the xe route and tbf iv spent that much time and cash already I may as well do the best I can with the transplant il go xe with carbs,undecided on the millington block its an option at 4 k it's pricey and by the time your done I'd guess not much change out of 15k to build,im guessing even a half decent build on an xe is near on 8k minimum. Feck it mate its only 3000 pints of Stella when you look at it🤣🤣 parts are easily sorted and plentiful other than the 1.8 parts,il go uprated ford box,sump can source other than 1.8,mounts easily enough,dizzy maybe an issue but il sort something out. Il see mate il maybe buy the block and crank before I come home and tell the misses she's not going on holiday Feb 🤣🤣🤣

  3. That's about 60.000 € 😲... Thanks for sharing Barry. More pics at https://www.autoscout24.ch/de/d/opel-manta-coupe-1986-oldtimer?vehid=9554894 It has got that nice rare fake rubber rocker cover made by Irmscher and the car looks very nice. The description below (in German) says it is the same engine block as a "400" so no it is not. Salesman fairy-tale 😁.
