  1. Have added a contact link as I can't add to a PM.
  2. Not a coupe but this is up for grabs on Facebook.
  3. Looks very smart! https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1184105
  4. I recall when I checked the Regn a while back that it was originally silver. That would have been equally nice rather than white as now. I suspect it was one of the run out Limited Edition 2.0 SR/Berlina's with the front spoiler/ATS alloys etc.
  5. More info and photos here: http://www.carcavescotland.co.uk/classic-cars-stock/chevrolet-chevair-cavalier The Ascona doesn't appear to be for sale as yet.
  6. Looks very nice even with the louvre rear window! Up for £5500. Interesting to see it fitted with the Ascona style plastic bumpers. That place (Car Cave) seem to deal almost exclusively with cars imported from South Africa. Always got some interesting Escorts for sale. Note the maroon 2-door flat fronted Ascona (or SA equivalent) in the background of a couple of the photos.
  7. And some decent photos that enlarge would be useful. Looks tidy enough, but it's a big ask for a Hatch at £8K. Nice Xmas pressie for somebody perhaps. Strangely, there's also this one for sale, and again, just 1 previous female owner apart from the current seller. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1167566
  8. Well done on the sale! It was certainly a lovely looking car. The question is, why would anyone offer more than the asking price?? You've started a new trend!
  9. Restored by Carl and Danny. Looks stunning! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1977-S-Reg-Opel-Manta-B-Series-1-9-Berlinetta-Coupe-Superb-Condition-Non-Sunroof/202824051933?hash=item2f39416cdd:g:LbMAAOSwbI9dqx~L
  10. I think at this point, I'd be taking a wander down the High St. to find an upholsterer or a clothes alteration place to run that up for me! 😄
  11. Looks very nice and arguably, in the best colour: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1978-VAUXHALL-CAVALIER-2-0L-COUPE/163920394420?hash=item262a6ab8b4:g:S40AAOSwXq5dtb0Q
  12. Can't recall now, but circa £3500 rings a bell. Sure I read on Faceache that it was sold.
  13. Interesting to see the results of the dipping as opposed to blasting. No surprises about the front grill panel. I had that replaced under the Vauxhall-Opel 6 year anti-rust warranty back in 1992 when my GTE was coming up to its 5th birthday. Was well chuffed!
  14. Seconded! I doubt it looked that good when new! Lovely rich colours. Also liking the wood effect strip. Looks darker than I recall, but suits the dark red fabric and carpet perfectly!
  15. Agreed re most of your thoughts. It's a tidy looking car. As for the burnt orange interior, personally speaking I'd prefer the dark grey that's fitted to the GT that's also currently for sale. At least you get a grey dash! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Manta-GT-1-8s-1983-1-owner/372827305188?hash=item56ce3d34e4:g:yEIAAOSwP3Jdvv0a
