  3. Hi , I have a set of manta B bumpers with overiders and the rubber still attached to the bumper. I have no idea if these would work on an A bumper, you would need to check with some of the guys here. If they might be of any use , give me a shout.
  4. Folks, Just to let you know , this car is available for sale. Only thing that has changed , I guess is we are all 2 years older ........ The details of the car are still the same , price also. Just so your aware , i am looking to sell all my mantas all be it I am not in a hurry. I have firmed up in my mind that it is time to sell up, as the cars do not get used , and the guilt of keeping them hidden away . One person 3 cars all different styles ,which I have enjoyed building and owning for different reasons. Appreciate that the styles of each of the cars is not to every ones taste, but as i have been fortunate enough to have owned 3 coupes , i liked having the different styles,. So me selling up the cars may well bring 3 new members to a great club. My white 400r sold last week ,although the car is still in my garage, the v8 is advertised on Facebook market place. Please dont frown that i have not put it here as I am the worlds least technical person in computers , phones and all that stuff. My wife has put the red car up for me on facebook in an account that i apparently have. Its been 25 years of manta ownership and i like to think, in my own way that i have been doing my bit for the mark up here in the north east and north of Scotland, and I am delighted to see so many projects up this way being finished to a high standard. There are roughly 10 -12 cars up this way these days when at one point there were only 3 or 4 of us. I say 25 years of ownership ,but that may be longer , if i dont get a buyer for the cars. It would be really nice for the cars to be appreciated and seen. When I can or someone can , I will see if I can get some additional pics of the interior and engine bay, i dont believe you would be disappointed with the condition this car is still in. There have been a few people shown interest in the car , but the price has been a sticking point. Coupes at auction recently have done very well , having more owners and higher miles ,not in exclusive trim . Not having alot to go on to gauge a price except what cars can make at auction and what it would take for me to let it go. On the subject of spares , I would say, i have accumulated quite a few, I will sort something out in the coming weeks in terms of a list . I got 1 of the local lads coming to pick some spares first.
  5. Hey Mike , car looks mighty fine. Top job ! Home straight now! 👍
  6. Lovely car ! Colours painted on impresses me , god knows how much time and effort that would have taken . Price looks fair to me, considering what it costs to restore a standard car without mods .everybit as good as a genuine 400 without the price tag . Not many people are bothered with detail when they see my 400r manta. I imagine it would be the same seeing a pretty unique car like the Ascona. It’s a 2 door ascona in the best livery imo.
  7. Lot of work done by the sounds of it plus respray. On the money I would say !
  8. Cheap car I would say , wheels and body kit if you can get them would be £7k ......... Body kit I priced at £3.5 k about 10 years ago . Not easy to get either wheels or kit . Having something similar myself ,I often find people either love it or hate it. It’s always interesting to hear what people think. The v8 always goes well with this style of car , people expect it to match the looks.. Build one for less than the reserve ............. no chance ! Good luck with the sale.
  9. Best to come and see it in the flesh if your serious and got the money. The overhead shot may be the oldest pic, the rest are last summer or summer before !
