  1. Another nice example😍…..5k seems to be the average asking price for a good hatch at the moment....hell i've spent 3k on parts and materials for my coupe and its still not finished😭 I would have to change the colour of the wheels and go gun metal or black just to give it some contrast against that lovely retro gold bodywork.
  2. LOL I thought I had seen it somewhere before.....if its getting a ticket and those legs have been done...your not going to get any better for the money.
  3. There might be some localish club members who could do a reccy on this and report back to HQ possibly.
  4. The lack of headlamp washers and washer jets in front bumper also indicate that it probably had a light frontal as well.
  5. This could be worth checking out in person...as its hard to appraise this one by the pics alone,but looks promising. Seller states mot work in hand so I gather that will be done.....looks to be a potential bargain compared to other hatchbacks for sale at the moment which are still good buys in the grand scheme of things.😎
  6. That looks well mint....and the silver paint job suits this model really well. Its a big fat yes from me.😎
  7. Just an update on this manta....its had the petrol tank flushed,new pump and filter and the paintwork has been mopped😎 Also showing extra pics of the underside....and a price drop to £4995😍
  8. As the original engine has been rebuilt,i would be tempted to sell the xe and associated parts to help fund a new paint job on this one....half roll cage fitted unusual to see,...could be a return to original jobbie with this to regain maximum value .🤑
  9. ouch! that poor manta, poor owner must be devastated😭….remember this for sale a few years back,......without doubt a good project for the right person.
  10. The seller/trader,was probably so impressed with its bodywork and structural soundness,thought that this would be enough to sell the car alone which it is...but not for 6k so he's probably just testing the water just to see if someone will bite on a "as is sale" So in reality as people in the know...er, know that he will have to recommission it himself put a ticket on...oh and give it a proper clean.🤑
  11. I do get the impression with this one that the previous owner bought this in a solid already restored state and just put it in the nice and dry trailer for 15 years.😕
  12. I like the backstorey with this one and pic 8 showing it being awoken from its 15 year tomb..looks to have a rare steering wheel🤓
  13. Excellent entry level manta...price wise,....sitting really nice in pic 3 showing off the lines of the hatch really well,and for some reason would not look as good if it had side skirts on imho. But I do like the other upgrades seats headlights and wheels which contrast the red paintwork perfectly😎…..looks to have a 4 branch manifold on so may have been fettled in other areas to,maybe with a hot cam and carb and some headwork in the past,still a nice motor either way. Car of the month for me in real world terms.
  14. Fairplay for keeping the i200 mate, your sitting on a serious investment with that.😎
  15. I do remember when you had this for sale mate,it had the full elegance or RMJ kit on, and did it not have a 16v engine at the time? Which brings me to my next question.....have you still got the i200🤓
  16. I remember this one when Taylorblue sold it for 4k,but it was road going and more or less fully completed and looked well nice, so its a bit of a mystery how it ends up like this😦 The 7k make offer price is about what a modified manta like this is going to fetch if it was completed IMHO😶
  17. I saw the mantzel patrol car a few years ago and as far as I know still resides in the midlands,It still has the patrol theme going on but is now running a rover v8 lump. I personally prefered it in its Fast Cars incarnation days....in the blue paintwork with the supercharged monza engine and that's the way it should of been kept,and with that in mind and the history of the car with the mag feature would of been a very desirable sellable car,more so than mega manta perhaps.
  18. Your mates are quick in the Ascona 400's Herman.great stuff. My fave section is at the 5 min ish stage,up until then I was feeling every bump,......lol could be most of the roads we have to put up with in the uk.
  19. that's a bit of a space oddity there for sure,granted there is narrow 400's like hermans/but if your going to put a kit on, its got to be the full fat 400 i'm afraid. I tend to think the owner put the i240 kit on to enhance the looks of the car without hacking away the arches which you would of had to do with the 400 kit..... maybe.🤔
  20. Seems like a very well executed 400R,//but for a few dollars more....lol I would rather have this real deal.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-Chevette-HS-2300-Concours-Condition-Sale-agreed/292828448263?_trkparms=aid%3D888007%26algo%3DDISC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140328180637%26meid%3D38032526c6834bce9cd451e253cd79ea%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26sd%3D223311423154%26itm%3D292828448263&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982
  21. Doh! I must of been in dream mode there herman, I thought 28k was a classified ad price,not the starting bid for an auction.....somebody help me😑 So we could be looking at an 120k motor,any predictions anyone🤑
  22. Very nice,looks to be an 1800 engine gsi model though🤔 Anyone who can guess the price wins it lol.😉 Yes please🤩....28k for a genuine 400 i'm on my way to buy this now🤔😭 lol hairdressers car...😆🙁
  23. Check out this beauty guys😋 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-GT-coupe-One-Owner-Low-mileage-1969/153325075178?_trkparms=aid%3D888007%26algo%3DDISC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140328180637%26meid%3D33cfc00e1230461da31f42c0f2ef0545%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26sd%3D173718241640%26itm%3D153325075178&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982
  24. Mileage looks to be genuine going by the condition of the interior...no splits in the gearstick gaiter...still has the grain effect on steering wheel...and the Daytona check looks outstanding May be a non sunroof hard to tell in the pics...looks to only need a small amount of paint to make totally mint.....seems a very nice original genuine car..check it out on ebay. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/manta-gte/232953759164?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D52945%26meid%3D4710938007334db6ab371b91fe99664e%26pid%3D100010%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D202453785548%26itm%3D232953759164&_trksid=p2047675.c100010.m2109
  25. Going by its current condition it had a hard unloved 63k of use before being dry stored for 26 years....visually it looks like its done another 100k on top of that.....just noticed that the ecu is in the engine bay for some reason What would be a fair price to pay for this then about the £800 mark maybe
