  1. It was Paul Newport in Penzance i think he got some though.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 12v 15w in Manta A reversing lamps
  7. 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.
  8. Not surprised when you have 3 in the same auction. I did think the White GTE might have gone a tad higher
  9. 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.
  10. I think someone had this before & it turned out to be a faulty capacitor on the circuit board.
  11. Sold for £6795 plus i assume buyers premium on 27th April this year so a bit odd that it should appear on Ebay two weeks later for roughly the same price. Comparing the pics from the auction site & the now pics it looks like the car has been fully valeted. Advert is very honest almost too honest. Its a nice example of a 1.8 Exclusive
  12. Well not exactly spotted but a get together with a few Manta mates for a Sunday morning coffee. First time we have properly met up since October last year.
  13. I watched the end of the auction live & it definitely finished on £60200 but reserve not met. The site stated this auction has now ended. The bidding history shows a bid of £150000 2 minutes after the auction ended so looks a bit strange to me. Very odd thing I noticed on this auction site whilst watching the closing minutes was that as the timer got to near zero it reset itself at least three times & added a few more minutes on !
  14. Sold for £52000 in 2017 & £57500 in 2019 could this be the first Manta to decrease in value over the last couple of years ? Needs to be in a bigger & better known auction house to reach top price.
  15. Reckon he might be mixed up with the fan club Facebook group
  16. Shame there is only one pic as the car looks good. Failed the MOT in September 2020 on what looks like swan neck chassis corrosion both sides, wouldn't surprise me if its not too bad but will need sorting & a new MOT would not give me total confidence unless it was up on a ramp & i could inspect it. In spite of that i think as a trade sale & with the offer of a 3 month warranty if the mileage is genuine then it seems a fair price.
  17. Ended up at £5450 but didn't meet reserve I think £5k + is a good price for a Cavalier saloon.
  18. Interesting that it's a Manta S Berlinetta. No SR steering wheel In the UK I think that model designation was dropped by 1978, we got SR Berlinetta.
