  1. Mines insured for 16k, which I thought was a realistic insurance figure.
  2. It was optional before the 86 model year. I think they nade it standard to try and combat the parallel imports that were popular in the eighties.
  3. The 1.8 Exclusive was based on a 1.8 GT hatch, so steel wheels are correct, and all UK market cars had a sunroof as standard from 1986 model year onwards.
  4. I got mine from Dr Manta in Germany.
  5. I'd say 402 is Sahara Gold as well.
  6. I'm sure that sold ages ago, certainly on his website as sold. Never dealt with him, but met him a few times, seems one of the better dealers. I know Chris Burt has traded with him.
  7. If I remember correctly it had a leak into the boot while the first owner had it which meant it strangely rotted part of the boot floor out. I messaged the guy I bought it from (2nd owner) and he said he bought the car with the rotten boot floor, he thinks the water had been coming in where the aerial was. He had the repair done. The B1 has always been the poor cousin when it comes to Mantas, lagging behind A series and GT/E and Exclusives, but the prices are on the up now. It will be interesting to see if UUW sells, and if so how much for. I'd like the car back, but couldn't afford it these days.
  8. One of the things that might make this car more desirable than some is that it's not really been messed with. I believe the original wheels and steering wheel are still with it.

    Is it GT/J or Berlinetta you need, they are two different models.
  10. Certainly is Chris, probably one of the photos I took when I was selling it. Actually just looked, and I think it's one of the ones I took at a show before I bought it.
  11. The Glass' Check Book won't tell you if it's an SR, Berlinetta or L though. I've not looked at a chassis plate for a while though, do they show type designation? If so 59R will prove it's an SR, 59B a Berlinetta.
  12. Just entered a few early Manta registration numbers into confused and they all come back as Manta L. I wonder if this is because the type 59 designation in the chassis number is for the "Luxus" shell, which I think all UK Manta A and most if not all early Manta B's came with?
  13. Considering the the DVLA's own rules say if the car was registered before the 8th January they will count it as built the previous year then you shouldn't have had to prove a build date.
