Well this is my project, bought it in 2011 (when i was 16) and then it's been standing in a barn. I'm from Sweden and no GSi or GT/E was imported here, only 83 hatchback have survived and is still registered in Sweden.
Anyway I'm going for a Gt/e look for it because it will be something that sticks out from the rest of the Manta's here in Sweden.
When i bought it it was fitted with a 2,0S Cih but now i've put in a 2,2E from a Opel Rekord -85 and a Getrag 240 instead of the 4 gear transmission.
Going to fit some GSi sideskirts on at and a rearspoiler that i bought from lepo5 on this forum
Here is some picture of it
This is summer 2011, it's the grey one.
This is how its been standing for the last two years
pulled out and ready to be towed to my workshop
A 2,2 Cih that is ready to be fitted
In the workshop
Fixing some rust on the driver's side
Engine + gearbox
Found the way in to the car
Had to modify the tunnel to get the gearbox in place
And some more rust
Not so proud of it but it will do the job.
Then i had to build my own gearbox holding points
