  1. Yes mate it is ,one of them anyway. Tge other one has to stay along with the grey hatch
  2. Hi matt ,I'm glad you found your way on here I saw your post just by browsing. I don't use this forum much as prefer the Facebook omoc pages for faster quick responses. In question to your electronic ignition query, I didnt get to fit it to this car but ive fitted accuspark to my other mk1 cavalier. Basically just a unit ,simple to install in the distributor and looks stock so no clumsy boxes to fit on the inner wing ect .. I never actually adjusted the points on your car it ran so very well. With more comfy seats manta ones are a direct fit ,recaro ones from a gt/e even better for comfort. I did try and source a dash but met with no avail ,I did replace the binnacle over the clocks as that was more broken than the dash itself . Oh and if you decide to remove the towbar as recommended ,please sell it as it was brand new and I only fitted it in April, the holes were already there from a previous towbar.. Any help needed please contact me . Regards paul
  3. That's Tony David in his lovely mint totally original manta
  4. I'd settle for a grey dash top as I really need one ASAP please people
  5. Yes it's a four door saloon vauxhall cavalier! I didn't think of to put that as I didn't reckon they'd be much call for a 2 door saloon door as they are so rare. Thanks to Mr Carlos, I've a passenger front door coming but I still need a rear drivers side one.
  6. Hi dave, many as you would expect have gone the other way auto to manual, this is and could be an advantage to you as the auto box's and associated parts usually end up being offered for free. Many years ago I picked up a box and all the components for a mere £50. As an auto manta gte owner myself, I'm a fan. I also own 2 cavalier mk1 autos. It's just how it worked out when I bought them They perform well and will definitely do what you want one to do. I'm sure someone will offer you the stuff to get one converted, easy enough obviously box change, the prop ect and the tunnel has a square hole for the selector instead of a round one for gearlever.. Again a bit of fettling can get this done. Also either a separate oil cooler for the trans or a rad from an auto.
  7. Dash top required, ideally Blue but font hold out much hope for that. Black would be good too. To replace a very badly cracked one. Also passengers front and drivers side rear doors for cavalier mk1 or ascona. Cheers paul
  8. I had a 1800 gt in 1996, that had no rear wash wipe, round washer bottle, no sound deadening over the servo, none of that thick under carpet sound deadening that is like the biggest sponge you can imagine. No headlamps on buzzer! Probably more but I can't remember.
  9. White gt/e exclusive coupe in westcliff, Southend-on-Sea Essex on the London Rd. Turned off on to hamlet Court Rd. Looked absolutely mint. Would loved to have had a chat!
  10. Pictures I took of it approx 4 years ago when it was just sitting outside someone's house. It hadn't moved in ages I used to pass it regularly..
  11. The time this had sat outside, it will be crusty underneath. I used to drive past it often enough. It was parked in the road for ages, then it got moved onto the drive. I remember that about 5 years ago as there were two unused mantas parked up within a mile of each other. Which leaves me the only one locally to still own one..
  12. Been sprayed too.. A very off putting thing for me is the under bonnet is a different colour
  13. I've seen this car locally for years now. For about 2 to 3 years it's just been parked up on the drive unused. I think this and my manta are the only ones left here in this area. Locally registered too here in Southend, providing dealer probably came from jessups or macs garage. Hope it finds a good home it deserves. Only thing that stopped me knocking on the door is I suspected they would know the real value of it....
  14. I'd say it's been replaced by a manual rad as these have got hard to come by. I'm glad I've seen this topic as I'm think of fitting a cooler in place if the one in the bottom of the rad as I may start towing with the sportshatch and this would be a much better way of keeping the gearbox fluid cool. (now I kick myself for selling the two spare rads I had that were manual)
  15. I bought a couple of these from a car show some time ago. A little long black tube with a red and a black wire. Easy to fit too. I think was made by pearl products.
  16. Its one of those things that are marmite I suppose. It's a case of personal preference. I've other cars that are manual, and also had mk1 cavaliers that are speed and 2.0 and 2.8 mantas with 5 speed manual boxes. so when I take the auto out I enjoy it. It's one of the most smoothly changing autos I've driven. Also as the case with the manta I have it was the first auto I drove even before I owned it myself. The sportshatch, well that was unplanned it just happened to be auto. No plans to Convert them myself.
  17. They do come up now and again, Unfortunately not many people are fans of the auto hence they get converted to manual. I personally love them and have a gte auto and a cavalier sportshatch in auto .
  18. Its my dream to have this happen
  19. hi brian , I won't be able to come this time as I'm going into work! yes on a Sunday! it was a bit last minute and a bit extra cash.. paul
