  1. Good looking Ascona, Dave. I've just seen you have a different front grille on this pic compared to your signature pic. Which is the original? This one with the silver/black looks very classy anyway!
  2. Here's one 🙂 ..... but maybe not! 😞 https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/gmc/auction-1925860629.htm?rsqid=637e05ab33ed44b8a143432ed3ad7ece
  3. It's a cool idea. Would love to get a GMC done up in the rally colours, but I may have to look a bit closer to home to find a van....... perhaps! 😉
  4. I seem unable to add to my own topic previously posted? Still looking for a screen please. Not heard back from Peter Evans, but keen to do so if he could contact me about the screen he thought he might have. Otherwise, if anyone else able to offer one, close to Warminster would be ideal Cheers
  5. I like the black one! Whose is that?
  6. Terrific! I'll bear that in mind if I decide to go ahead with the project. Thanks for the input.
  7. I would suggest they are not genuine. Merry Christmas to you too 🙂
  8. Surely I can re-use those from the lhd car if they are in good condition? Except the steering rack of course.
  9. They don't look very vintage to me. I'd suggest you save your money and get a local signwriter to create one for you. Just a logo on a circular sheet of perspex should not cost too much 😉
  10. Thanks Paul. Just need to think through the logistics now! There's a couple of Manta A stored in a shipping container that are very poor condition, but could potentially get one of them for parts if I can get the owner to realise the cars will unlikely ever get on the road again, and so only worth anything as spares. Bodies were rough, insect-infested, and was a bit of a health hazard going in the container with them about three years ago ....... but I still remember the visit! 😉 Presume I will need the bulkhead/firewall too. Anything else?
  11. Just trying to find out if dashboard for Manta A and Ascona A are identical? Reason for asking is that I've been offered an Ascona A in left hand drive, and trying to work out if I could swap to right hand drive with a Manta A dashboard/bulkhead etc? Cheers Neville
  12. Looking for a replacement front windscreen for a hatchback I picked up recently. Ideally near to Warminster, Wiltshire for easy collection, or will consider anything that I can get other UK contacts to pick up for me. Tried NZ windscreen suppliers and no-one lists for the Manta even though it was sold here for a couple of years....... 😞 Anyone?
