  1. That's the one! To think he struggled to sell it for £6500 before reducing the price further. Still looks to be sitting a bit high at the rear too!
  2. Unfortunately I can't recall his name at the moment, but a familiar name on here for sure. I'm sure Rapierdave will know who I'm trying to remember.
  3. Lovely looking red hatch, and restored by a club member: https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1268508
  4. Anyone know how much it went under the hammer for? To answer my question: £6660 https://www.classiccarauctions.co.uk/events/2020-auctions/cca-september-live-online-auction-2020/cca-september-live-online-auction-2020/classic-car-sale-19th-september-2020-from-11am/1989-opel-manta-gt-exclusive
  5. More likely over on Facebook. Has its place but you could never have a coherent build thread on it. Great work and skills above re the roof replacement. The question is, where did you find a rust free roof with a sunroof? No mean feat these days!
  6. I doubt this one will go for £14K as per the last GT to go through auction, albeit this one has 3 times the mileage. Definitely one to keep an eye on.
  7. Did the headrests change between the Daytona & Chicago interior? They look different.
  8. How nice is that! I'd imagine you wish that was a keeper for yourselves! Lovely shade of Monaco Blue, looks more blue than some.
  9. Was he not asking circa £7500 for it a couple of months back.
  10. They did look good in gold with the matching alloys! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Manta-GT-E-Hatchback-Project-1984/203084954946?hash=item2f48ce7d42:g:76oAAOSwHlhfQSzg
  11. I noticed the seller mentioned that he bought it in Invergordon, Ross-Shire which rang a bell. There were a couple for sale in a yard up there back in 2017: https://mantaclub.org/search/?q=invergordon&quick=1
  12. Seems the seller removed the post on Facebook due to all the negative comments he was getting. Still for sale but going to re-advertise elsewhere. I suspect he was a collector/trader rather than a Manta fan.
  13. It was for sale latterly by East Lancashire Classics for sale circa £17K. I notice it's no longer listed, so maybe it sold or it has been passed on yet again. Agreed on all counts. It's worth a lot of money as an investment/keeper, but it's still a bit OTT at £25K despite it's condition & mileage. I'd be pleasantly surprised if he could get £15K for it. Have to agree. I see the post on Facebook seems to have been removed. I did notice the seller had only bought it a couple of weeks ago. Here's a link to when KGF Classics was selling it:
  14. Needs a fair bit of welding as I recall.
