Manta Nut

Manta Nut (7/8)



  1. I suspect that lot was being sold by a well known former club member, and if it is who I think it is I'll be surprised if there was any shill bidding going on.
  2. Am I being cynical to think that if you buy the "good shell" you'll actually get the ID from the spares car which is Metallic Blue?
  3. Factory sunroof and vinyl roof, not a good combo on a Manta.
  4. The chassis number should be stamped into the scuttle where the bonnet closes on the drivers side, assuming it's the same as European market cars.
  5. Good looking car, but it didn't precede the Manta, just the Manta B. Having had a Viva 1800 HC (albeit an estate) I'd rather have the Manta with it's CIH engine.
  6. Maybe that's why Clive has put it up for sale rather than doing it himself, I assume it's the car he was wanting parts for.
  7. I believe 1978 was the first year that wheel was fitted.
  8. Possibly the best steering wheel ever factory fitted to a Manta, but not period correct for a 1977 car, so I guess it depends if Clive wants to go original or not. If he does then the steering wheel is governed by the spec of the car. This is the Berlinetta one, which I believe was also on the SR. I think the base models had one like the A series SR. Edit, it was similar in style to the A series one, but more basic.
  9. Here you go, it's solid to the best of my knowledge, but tatty. You can see it's a bit bent on the right hand side by the Manta badge.
  10. I've got a spare in my garage in Lincoln. I think it is slightly bent so may not be good enough, but can dig it out and take some pics if you're interested?
  11. At least that's an early one without the huge federal bumpers.
  12. Welcome to the club, I wondered where that one had gone. I'm not sure who your nearest area rep would be, but any area rep or committee member should be able to do you a valuation. Simon Peckham who's the membership sec and A series registrar would be ideal, although he's some distance from you in Suffolk.
