  1. somebody posted on f/book that they went to see it and its not very good in the flesh.
  2. It is indeed and it was supplied by said dealer FRF Motors too. And pretty much the same time as i looked at it. They offered me £1900 for my 5 year old Manta SRB in p/x. I was only young and Deb and i had been married about 18 months and couldnt find the extra money back then.
  3. I really like this, looks lovely, i looked at one in FRF Motors in Swansea brand new in the showroom back in the mid 80's wonder if it was this car, not many in Baryt brown.
  4. As far as i know he went on to Japanese cars after the Manta.
  5. perhaps the 4000 miles could be correct, ive just checked the mot history and it states this vehicle has not had its first mot yet !!! Might have been laid up in the 80s, but drivers seat looks a little worn on the lower bolster.
  6. The sides have been painted but unfortunately the scuttle, bonnet and boot have not, there were heavy mask lines on the corners of the front scuttle and the same on the corners of the rear panel at the base of the rear window. Rear spoiler was pretty tatty to be honest with flaking paint and cracks. But like i said before im not knocking the car in any way shape or form, just an honest opinion from myself.
  7. simple answer is that everybody wants a standard original car these days. Look at classic cars in general, standard original fetch more than modified cars. I know this car from old, and went to look at it when it was at auction, but in my opinion the bodywork isnt up to where it should be, not far off but needs paintwork and the rear spoiler isnt the best as its covered in cracks. But not knocking the car at all, just things i couldnt live with personally.
  8. It sold for £22.600 inc premiums but that was a pretty mint car. I dont think this one is the same standard.
  9. No its a different car from last year, That was fully up and running, road leagal and had covered 40k from new, was owned by a guy called Richard. I dont know this car, could be a nice car but needs looking at in the flesh after being dormant for so long, 15 years off the road is a long time.
  10. I personally think that both the Exclusive coupes that have sold this week have been pretty cheap to be honest.
  11. Foglights are mk1 Fiesta, i had them on my courtney Turbo and fitted them to my 2.4 Exclusive coupe when i had that, mk2 items are the wrong angle for the valence
  12. STJ 574 Is also Steve Titmus,s number plate so along with A1 OMOC I think this was Steves car, as far as im aware he bought it brand new.
  13. All three Mantas are listed for sale in the next Auction in just over 4 weeks time. See what happens then, not sure if they will achieve any more money.
  14. Funny how many are surfacing out of the woodwork now that a couple have achieved good prices recently. But still think excellent cars will still command a premium and achieve a premium. Think prices might stabilise for cars such as these that need some work. But who knows anything can happen if someone wants a particular car and colour
  15. not taxed sice April 1989 and colour changed to Black sometime in its life
  16. Pretty sure A1 OMOC was on Steve Titmus blue Exclusive coupe way back in the early 90s. Im sure i have a pic of it somewhere
  17. My mate is just in the process of buying his old Z4M BMW Roadster back from Ireland and is using a company called Shiply they handle everything and door to door from Ireland to Northants fully insured is £400.
  18. Keep at it Danny, Its looking really good, will be stunning when finished.
  19. Quick update, Dan from Adrian Flux here on the forum stepped in to help with my agreed valuation on E100 OMM, And he has managed to get the agreed value increased closer to what i was asking for. Appreciate your help Dan. Thank you.
  20. Hi Dan. You have a new message, up until now i have had no issues with Adrian Flux and been very happy with the service. I also have another Opel Manta with you thats coming up for renewal in a months time.
  21. Hi Dan,

    Thank you for replying.

    My full name is Christopher Peter Burt my postcode is NN11 0GR.

    My reg number is E100 OMM.

    My car is in excellent condition throughout and i strive to keep it that way.

    I appreciate your help in looking into this for me.

    the value thats been put on the car will just not cover a replacement now

    Many thanks,

       Chris, I’m not sure why I’m seeing what I assume should be a pm as having your postcode & car reg isn’t a good thing on an open forum these days.
