  1. From what you can see in the pics that looks eminently savable and not a breaker,it would have to be a DIY job to make it feesible though.
  2. if that could be had for 4k surely that would be a seriously good buy for someone.given its history,and regardless of that tiny amount of cosmetic work required The bread knive dislikes it simply because its red and has the devil sign reg lol.....bad omen......so basically if I bought it she would kill me
  3. Great selection of opels ,...….have to say I love that manta B blue/purple six shooter,looks like a take no prisoners absolute show car...and as for the GTE kadett ...just awesome.
  4. The black compliments the lines of the manta A really well,....the 2.2 cih is an attractive upgrade for me over whatever the size cih was originally,,,especially with the megasquirt on it..with the addition of the 5 speed box aswell...along with the better brakes suspension exhaust its good to go...happy days......I would just recover the recaro's to match the original bench rear seats to give a nice authentic period look....GLWTS ..Shug
  5. Great stuff there dan...she still looks nice n shiney topside it has to be said.....
  6. Looks good,has had a good run as a rally car at 22 years and still looks battle ready,big collection of them 5 stud wheelsincluding 16" manta 400 wheels. Wonder if those arch extensions are genuine irmscher ones as fitted to the i2800.Love the sound of the v8's but I think I would still rather have an xe on twin 40's. Could be a good buy as its got no reserve,and depending on the amount of interest it gets.
  7. No longer available for sale so may have a proud new owner. Oh yes it is still for sale,....i had a late notification come through from ebay for the previous auction.
  8. Engine conversion looks well neat,alot of work gone into this..would have to have this beast on the road though for maximum fun. Well worth the money,..i would deck it out in rothmans livery myself
  9. An amusing write-up,....check it out https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Ascona-400-starter-pack/232831480505?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D52975%26meid%3Dd4432119c5d645a29012ba58a4a5bae6%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D302787363200%26itm%3D232831480505&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Abf9ad012-80da-11e8-bbe1-74dbd180976c|parentrq%3A6dfeabc11640aa15b397c1eaffef463a|iid%3A1
  10. Your absolutely right it never will be the genuine article,but it sure as hell is an outstanding effort at being so. As for the five stud thing,for me its just adds to the illusion of the genuine article..i may have ocd lol,....does not make or break the overall appearance of car at all. Not very often you see a two door scone come up for sale let alone a works rep.
  11. The seller could be just testing the current market place to be fair,although I think it has been offered for sale before now. Open to offers so may be able to bag it for 20k or less depending on interest...its fair to say its had a ground up proper full rebuild and that would surely cost a lot more than he his asking if done by a pro outfit
  12. Is that one of clives washer bottles I spy in the engine bay,or a poor imitation perhaps
  13. Beyond Awesome...…….a five stud conversion would of finished it off nicely I guess,..but beggers can't be choosers as they say. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Ascona-400r/153063381330?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D49129%26meid%3Da643269e81c54d69ac4cf94ab99a15aa%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D302772811296%26itm%3D153063381330&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
  14. Nik has put it back on ebay again with a BIN price of £12.500 With the big v8 and the huge kit,its well and truly in thunder saloon territory..could be turned into a stars and stripes replica maybe. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/opel-manta-v8-project-car/263744054055?hash=item3d685ee327:g:J8QAAOSwU8xa2NX1
  15. That strut brace is probably home made ,I like them wheels look good in bronze. Deposit already taken so someone did not waste anytime looks like a great buy/car for the money without a doubt.
  16. ...nice to see this treatment given to the saloon for a change,.....almost looks like a mini ascona 400 in this guise. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-CHEVETTE-16V-with-REDTOP-C20XE-ENGINE/163046361006?_trkparms=aid%3D888007%26algo%3DDISC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D50545%26meid%3Dda46dea3fdb74bc9b8b11790e2dba0ba%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D2%26sd%3D112997430326%26itm%3D163046361006&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982
  17. It is a good buy considering how much money nuttynik would of put into mega manta,....but this has been for sale on and off for a while now and its been ignored,does that mean mega manta is just to extreme and well to mega.. for most folk..maybe. For me I still like it,..but if you have noticed nik has extended the rear arches and that spoils the rare evo kit for me...however I can see why he has done it.
  18. 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.
