  1. As far as I know contact with said martin was done via lepo5 (club member).. still maybe?..not to sure about how much this Martin chap produces,goes without saying the arches,i would say at least you may have to get the rallytech bonnet,which is rated,would not worry about the airdam as your building a 400R. Also can I just ask..are you doing this conversion to a hatch...,or is your username a bit misleading in that respsect,... good luck with your project nonetheless.
  2. your probably looking at £900 to £1000,but I wouldn't expect too much change out of that,the martin kit is generally regarded in club circles as the absoulute dogs wotsits and that's down to the fact he has the original irmscher moulds. Rallytech are held in high regard aswell,apart from these two forget about anyone else you come across mate.
  3. Stonking engine coupled with the twin webbers.....yes please..this will eat a standard redtop for breakfast
  4. Great pics and very much appreciated Who owned the green evo never seen that one before,is it still about. That narrow arched 400 looks like the one that was for sale recently,i think owned by one of the H-400 crew possibly.
  5. Works manta 400 for just 12k is just incredible,how times have changed. Was it D902 RGS the Andrew Wood one
  6. you never know....it could be hidden away in a barn somewhere....waiting to be discovered...or maybe in someones collection being pampered. Have you got a manta at the moment.
  7. I remember seeing your old car for sale in the fast car magazine,and was impressed with it,mainly because the evolution kit had been fitted to the hatch rather than the usual coupe,and it looked arguably even better on the hatch,also remember it having aluminum arch liners,what engine did it have? There was a red evo hatch fast car magazine featured car,was that yours in a previous incarnation?
  8. Great spec on this manta,and the engine conversion looks like its been done to a good standard. But given the concept of the car its crying out for a 400 kit.....that would be the next stage for me. This has been offered for sale recently for a lot more that the current starting bid,depending on the amount of interest this attracts you could potentially have a well spec'd/tricked up manta for not a huge amount of money. I like it
  9. Doh! that's who I meant,what happened to that in the end did it go to Ireland by any chance.
  10. Your bang on there Dan,and the ultimate CIH that springs to mind is without doubt the Steve James monster albeit in 2.7 form,and to think that sold for about 5k is incredible when you look at todays marketplace.
  11. Hence the reason why there is so many xe engined manta's about. Gm were allocating a good batch of the next gen engines to the calibra,after the astra and cav. Ps....I still love the CIH....as i'm still keeping mine going but its getting tired now. Also I like shaun's hatch,with the nice upgrades and mods,may just need the panintjob to finish depending on tastes.
  12. Depends what you mean by correct engine there mate,...yes it still had the CIH engine,but it was not furnished with the usual goodies like the cam.solid lifters.&uprated dizzy. However it did have the period and mega rare irmscher rubber rocker cover...cover
  13. I thought so,i remember talking to you and and seeing your car when you brought it into work one day...and that your name was simon,we were delivering to you at the time. me and George.
  14. I would say Shaun400r's Monaco blue coupe would be a better proposition than this one for not huge amount more,he's recently reduced the price and will deal further with a club member. Starmist did you use to own or still own a mint starmist exclusive coupeand work in leek by any chance.
  15. Stonking fully sorted 2.4 cih on twin 48 webers....and a close ratio gearbox.....yes please
  16. Blueprinted engine and a irmscher exhaust...bonus parts there.
  17. It is a cracking manta mate for sure......the seller has got it in the cars for sale section also
  18. I think the other i200 you mention may of been Blitzi's of this club,which had universal floor pans on,not to sure if he sold it or decided to keep it in the end.
  19. Just to add to the abovealthough its recognized as an i200 by being on the register its a bit of an oddity. Its not a officially designated i200 manta,which Steve Thompson supplied as we all know,and although its been given some nice Irmscher goodies its managed to achieve i200 status. Main thing is its missing the vital i200 ingredients,ie solid lifters,cam,and dizzynot forgetting the blitz interiorand the rothmans stripes which I know were optional as you could have the 400 stripes or nothing at all Wheres irmscher Man he knows about all this kind of stuff,anyone seen him Anyway heres a little clip of an i200 at watersgate lol....very well known club car and owner....sounds fab
  20. That manta belongs to or did belong to Phill N of this club. Conversion done by a Pontefract dealership,and is on irmscher Mans i200 register. Its got an LSD,and,one of those mega rare irmy rubber rocker covers,obviously lights,boot spoiler,and irmy steering wheel,and the 400 door stripes.(prefer Rothmans) Hasn't got the blitz interior sadly,the mirrors are not fitted as I recall Phill was going to fit some englemans,in fact I think the car was a keep it on the road and do jobs as and when type affair so a rolling restoration,however i'm pretty sure that it needed the chassis rails doing.
  21. ....that's as close as your ever going to get to a brand spanking new fresh out of the showroom Manta ever....ever.... the end.
  22. Twin turbo v8 that sounds awesome mate....,look forward to seeing it and hearing it for that matter. Oh yeah..... and welcome to the club&happy xmas.
