    Vin Check

    Hi Andy type opel vin decoder into Google and it will bring up information.
  4. The manta 400 rear spoiler has manta 400 stamped on it and the black rubber tip is thinner than exclusive,
  5. Stainless system for left hand drive car, manifold turned 90 degrees.
  6. Beautiful car, sometimes your dreams can come true, looks really good for sitting outside,
  7. Genuine ascona 400 front and rear bumpers . Rare as rocking horse Shute.
  8. Hi You will need a RHD manifold. The reason for the pattern LHD manifolds being readily available is Manta s were more popular in Europe and have a larger spares availability. Your best hope is to find a good second hand RHD manifold in Britain. Your on the best site to find one.
  9. Hi Lhd manifold has flange running left to right. Rhd manifold has flange running front to back. Your best bet is to try and find Rhd manifold.
  10. TVS 575W unfortunately was broken for spares years after I sold her,although someone still has shell and logbook. ABG 552 is making a comeback after 28 years off the road. Different registration and owner now . One very special car . (There's always one you wish you hadn't sold!) Hurry up and finish her and get some pictures up Andy.
  11. Couple of pictures of my Old cars on 15"
  12. The 5 stud ronal is off a early monza as it is a 14" alloy. Although according to Ascona 400 brochure 14" alloys were an option. Although have never seen a Ascona 400 on 14" did notice spare wheel on HJZ was a 14".
  13. Built a quick rack using quaife kit, no real problems. Just have to trim where it joins steering column. You'll be lucky to get a new one, better to build yourself. Or get someone to build it for you using a new kit.
  14. Hi Andy Your a hard man to find, nice to know hgd is still out there

  17. Hi ,start with the speedo cable,take it off and check for damage. Try the internal cable is free and turning both ends.
  18. Murray Grierson's 1987 Scottish Rally Championship winning car,
  19. The picture of car for sale in UK that H-400 posted was taken at KG Motorsport in Ireland
  20. Just noticed prodictive text should read had original 4 wheel drive Manta 400 for sale
  21. KG Motorsport had a manta 400 in Rothman's colours which they said originally the 400 Manta 400 for sale a couple of years ago. Car was on a Q plate. Would be worth contacting them for more information.
