  1. 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 ?
  2. The connector is the supply for the under bonnet light
  3. Ended at £5000 A good price for a Cav Coupe with no MOT that needs a recommission.
  4. I agree that £5K is probably a bit speculative without an MOT.
  5. Interesting car as its W reg but on chrome bumpers, plus its a low spec model being an S. Probably has the 3 clock dash & has non SR steering wheel Car is in South Wales. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Manta-Berlinetta-SR-2-0-litre-Manual-1980/133065381814?hash=item1efb5097b6:g:B6MAAOSwSzxc65el
  6. I know this car but the last time i saw it was in 2012, it's a rare early SR with the stingrays on the front wings & the black back panel. First registered Feb 1976 The car has been in the same family for years, being passed on from father to son. here is a pic i took then.
  7. looks like it could be a good car, if it has an MOT when sold then £3K could be a fair price. A lot depends on the condition of the roof
  8. Looks a good hatch at a fair price for a trader. Knock a thousand pounds off if it was a private sale. Ad seems to indicate that the car maybe registered as Cat C or D, wouldn't worry me but could put off
  9. If it has achieved close to its asking price of £11500 then i'm sure all us owners of Manta A's will be pleased.
  10. It's a realistic price to ask but will it achieve that price ? Yours Julian is i believe unrestored & largely original so is more desirable. The thing that would concern me about that car for sale is that it was re-sprayed a few years ago & has some rust appearing on one wing, i would want to know what prep/resto was done before the re-spray. Also why don't people present their car better when selling e.g. spray the airfilter box & clean the engine bay.
  11. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1102826 Strong money at £11500 but looks nice
  12. Much more information about the cars history here
