Kadett (1/8)



  1. I did some more research and looked more at the car, The flares and front valance are like the TE2800, Stienmart parts I believe. The rear end has a bigger lip on the trunk that blends down the back of the rear 1/4's. I have yet to find this on any other Manta A's. Anyone seen this anywhere else? https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0zGKQPy6GcUVrq;38C6D961-5D8F-4887-9098-853248B0A73A https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0zGKQPy6GcUVrq;BAA77B2D-66E1-45C2-ACCE-EEEB94FB535B
  2. Andy: Yeah I think it is the TE2800 body kit. Once I get the car running and driving I will be tearing it down to the bare shell to put in a new cage and do bodywork. Once the body is good I will one pulling molds from the body so I can reproduce the fenders and rear end stuff. The car will get vintage raced so it will get dinged up LOL.
  3. Must be missing something, I don't see an attach icon or button. Here is a link to an iCloud gallery. https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0zGKQPy6GcUVrq The history of the car has unfortunately been lost. The car was found in an estate sale in Illinois, near Chicago.
  4. Working on it. Unless I am wrong this forum requires a URL to pics online, so putting pics online
  5. HI everyone, My name is Haydn, I grew up in Halifax, West Yorkshire but now live in Detroit, MI, USA. I recently picked up this very rare in the US 1972 Opel Manta A race car. I will be restoring it/ rebuilding it as a vintage race car over the coming winter. Nice to meet you all and I look forward to picking your brains on technical/performance stuff on this thing. Thanks Haydn
