  1. I used this companies LED stop/tail lamps in my A series & the difference is amazing. https://www.classiccarleds.co.uk/ The only thing you have to ensure is you have a good connection as LEDs are either on or off if your lamp holder is al little corroded.
  2. If the owner only wants £5k for the Red SR then that's a bargain
  3. Totally agree with you ref 1.6 engine its gutless compared to the 1.9 or 2.0
  4. That must be one of the earliest Manta B's known to the club having been registered in October 1975 Stingray badges on the bottom of the front wings as per A models were discontinued by early 1976 No headrests & no rev counter show that its the more basic S model. Rare in 1.6 as most B1 survivors tend to be 1.9 . I.ve seen this car pop up on the fan club forum a few times & the owner has said in his opinion it needs painting on the roof. With a small amount of work that could be a show winning car Fantastic value for money.
  5. Would look great on the Campagnolas as i believe thats what was fitted as an option to the Cavalier Centaur convertables.
  6. Probably realised it would cost a fortune to restore after studying pics of the underside
  7. Really good project thread with lots of pics showing the outstanding quality of restoration work being carried out on this car. I would love to see this car when it's finished.
  8. Very nice. I would have to remove the towbar if I bought it.
  9. Put it with a decent auction house & it will find its value. Reached around £18K at recent auction
  10. Will be great to watch this when its on car sos in 2022. Did Tim & Fuzz get to drive the i240 or was it a static shoot ?
  11. It was Paul Newport in Penzance i think he got some though.
  12. Hi Bruce Welcome to the OMOC, i see you live not far from me. We have a few active members in the Bristol area & some just over the bridge in South Wales. We try & meet up about once a month so if you would like to join us then let me know. Look forward to seeing some pics of your cars once you get them.
  13. Nice to see the attention to detail like painting the front air intake under the bumper black, this often gets forgotten when a respray is carried out.
  14. Looks to be a solid example of a one owner SRB for sale on the bay. Last taxed in 1997 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124838529058?hash=item1d10f4c822:g:xfAAAOSwZrhhCvhb
  15. Not very many Manta A's come up for sale these days & this looks a good example. £9995 ono is a very fair price based on the pics & description
  16. 12v 15w in Manta A reversing lamps
  17. Looking forward to seeing this at Sywell The paint job looks superb After all the ups & downs the wait has been worth it, the car is a credit to you.
  18. Not surprised when you have 3 in the same auction. I did think the White GTE might have gone a tad higher
  19. As the title says, three Manta GTE coupes up for sale at Mathewsons auction house on Saturday 5th June. One is a Red GTE coupe in fair condition that needs recommissioning/restoration, guide £8000 - £9000 One is a White GTE Coupe in good condition, probably an older restoration that now needs some minor attention to one rear wheel arch & a door bottom. Overall a car you could drive away in. Current owner has had the car since 1990. Northern Ireland car. Guide price £15000 - £17000 Lastly a Manta GTE Coupe that has been made to look like a 400 with wide arch kit etc. Looks ok but some corrosion to boot lid & car was running but now wont start. Guide price £13500 - £14500 All cars can be viewed on Mathewsons website I wonder if values will be affected as there are three to choose from although all are different.
