  1. 3 very tidy looking Coupe's and one not so tidy for sale in the Emerald Isle: https://www.donedeal.co.uk/motor?words=Opel Manta
  2. That's a tidy looking car. Interesting being an 88 GSi Hatch. More so in Dolphin Grey if I'm not mistaken. How much do you think it will go for? Starting price is circa £2.5K.
  3. And now on Car & Classic for £8K. Not a hope in hell of selling at that price! https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1194536
  4. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Manta/383378473644?hash=item59432342ac:g:SJUAAOSw93xeJEL3&redirect=mobile

  6. Was mentioned in a post a few weeks ago: https://www.gumtree.com/p/opel/manta-gte-1983-classic-track-drift-project/1363892 100 and on Ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/opel-manta-gte-spares-or-repair/184132352321?hash=item2adf24b941:g:JfkAAOSwSA5eIeub&redirect=mobile
  7. Devious or what! Good luck!
  8. One wonders how long the Disklok has been on there.
  9. Just noticed it's on Gumtree with additional photos: https://www.gumtree.com/p/opel/1988-opel-manta-gt-e/1363163294 And why do some people take portrait orientated photos of cars? They don't fit!
  10. This one again! I'm sure it's gone up in price since I last saw it! https://www.gumtree.com/p/opel/1983-opel-manta-1.8-gt-3-door-hatchback-/1363222693
  11. There's something about a freshly painted car! Nice!
  12. He could, but I doubt very much he would get it. As has been said previously, when you hit the £10K+ mark you are getting beyond what the average Manta aficionado is willing or able to spend. I could point you to a few others that have been, or are up for higher figures and either didn't sell or go from dealer to dealer and still don't sell. Until someone actually gets to have a good look at this particular car and can see what hiding underneath (or not) we are just talking hypothetical values. A current MOT would certainly help though. There's no MOT history online, so has been off the road for 15 years at least. Of course, on the plus side it's a GTE coupe, and rare in black with the Chicago interior. Pretty sure solid black was dropped for the 87MY.
  13. I was going to revise my estimate upwards after I'd given it some more thought. You might be right if it's as nice as it sounds.
  14. Fair point, however there are 400 comments on the 'UK Barn Finds' page and he says that there's someone coming at the weekend to view. But yes, no mention of a price. I'd say £6500-7500 would be a realistic offer with an MOT.
