  1. And this lot has got to go back together...
  2. I've owned my Baby since 1981, she was 9 at the time. Never been restored fully, had a few bits and bobs done to her. At the moment due to a forced driving ban, I have the engine out and replacing the main and big ends, also polishing the ports and re seating the valves. It's been 30 years since Billy Blydenstein breathed on it for me, so decided it needed a treat. The bearing shells where amazingly good condition so replacing was all that's needed. Here she is on show last year with her stable mate, the wife's Jag.
  3. Hi everyone. I saw the restored shell of a pure white Manta A in a friends upholstery shop in St Ives Cambs. It had been at Quest Brothers for bodywork restoration. Apparently it had been in the family for some 20 years and was now being sorted. It's the early model with no B Pillar. The guys said he lived in Cambridge. Is he a member here??
  4. Need an alternator for Manta, Cav, Carlton ETC CIH engine. Message me on 07484074958. Thanks Guys
  5. It's been sold, Didn't have to advertise it, it's been stored at a farm for over a year untouched. It's going to a collector in scotland to be finished off at last, A good home.

  11. Here's a lost of events around the country In June. Be good if we can get some Manta's at these event's where possible. http://www.classicshowsuk.co.uk/carshowsthisyear/carshowsinjune.asp
  12. You have some good work i there, and have some more to do, unfortunately it does'nt stop for a long time mate, but the end result is worth it a million times over.It has a few odd mods on there but if you decide to keep the manual gearbox, look at fitting a getrag 5 speed, you wont regret it. If you decide an Auto, try for a modern box out of a Carlton, senator or the like, will make a much better job than the original box.
