  1. When it appeared for sale on the Manta Facebook page we suggested to the owner to get an MOT on it & he has done now. Good MOT history £5500 ONO is a fair asking price imo
  2. Unrestored (we think), Original, Low Mileage & a Coupe = Desirable & hopefully a high price achieved. I think we will all be watching this one with interest.
  3. Here is an example of an "S" reg B with headlamp shrouds, pic taken at Billing 2011.
  4. Nothing wrong with doing a few mods in the engine dept, 5 speed box, lowered (a bit) & banded Rostyles but keep the car looking largely as it came out the showroom including the satin black rear panel which was a feature on the early Manta B SR's. Why not do similar to this 1976 Manta SR that i owned a few years ago (mods not done by me)
  5. Is this the Coupe you have bought ? Please consider keeping it as it is as its a very early rare surviving 1.9 SR Manta Coupe.
  6. Hi Nick Welcome to the OMOC site, if you haven't already i would recommend you become a member as you will get full access to the forum.
  7. Sold for £5375 on the 6th July at Mathewsons auctions Yorkshire. https://mathewsons.co.uk/auctions/auction-dates/vehicles/11029-1976-opel-manta-1-6-auto-coupe
  8. Its gradually coming down in price. 😉
  9. The problem with advertising it to OMOC members only is that your audience is very small & most of us have already got a Manta or even a collection of Mantas ! I would advertise it on a website such as this one, its free & you can post up to six pictures. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/ Alternatively put it up for auction at one of the well known auction houses e.g. https://mathewsons.co.uk/ You will reach a larger audience if you advertise it on the Manta fan club Facebook page Insurance valuations on Mantas are very easy, achievable sale prices are more difficult to predict. As a general guide in the condition that your car is in Manta B2 Exclusive Coupe £15K + Manta B2 GTE Coupe £12K+ Manta A SR £12k + Manta B1 SR coupe £10K + Manta Hatches generally achieve 35% less than their equivalent coupes, this is simply down to supply & demand. Please bear in mind all of the above is only my opinion, just like an Estate Agent i don't set the market, merely study the market & observe the trends. Finally Stu if i were you & did not "have" to sell my car then i would keep it
  10. agree that the one you like is the closest match to the original, but think plain sides would work best.
  11. Stunning car & rare as its a B1 SR non berlinetta model. Love the colour I think to achieve the highest price you may have to consider going down the auction route. GLWTS
  12. Apart from the fact it needs a complete paint job i think that looks a nice solid car. Looks to have been Zeibart rustproofed from new looking at the tell tail black muck on the inner wings. With an MOT, recommissioned & a proper paint job it could be worth £6K Wonder what the reserve is set at ?
  13. The connector is the supply for the under bonnet light
