  1. It was just the way it was back then when the majority of cars were RWD. Before the 80's, the only Ford FWD car was the Fiesta and Vauxhall/Opel had no FWD cars until the Mk1 Astra and equivalent Kadett.
  2. Mine came with Goodyear NCT's (April 1987). Can't recall if other makes were supplied ex factory.
  3. Blimey! You certainly don't waste any time! It's looking great! 👍
  4. Plenty of bids on them though. I noticed this Irmscher rear spoiler for an Ascona whilst browsing. Not sure it would fit a Manta as per the description. https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/353349264877
  5. Very true! It was also about 125Kg heavier than the coupe. The thing I never could understand is, how the hatch was 3 inches shorter than the coupe.
  6. That does look good! Keep up the good work!
  7. That does look pretty tidy! I like it. Presumably this carpet material isn't very thick given how it seems to fit around the tight radii etc. A bit like the stuff that you get inside watch/shaver boxes etc. You will be doing the dashboard next! 😄
  8. A pity there's just the one photo! https://www.theparking-cars.co.uk/used-cars-detail/opel-manta/b-gsi-exclusiv/XQM5VNH7.html
  9. You won't be interested in this one then! 😁 https://www.theparking-cars.co.uk/used-cars-detail/opel-manta/b-gsi-exclusiv/XQM5VNH7.html There is this one coming up for auction next month: https://mathewsons.co.uk/auctions/auction-dates/vehicles/16457-1986-opel-manta-gte
  10. The original Irmscher batch of Exclusive's (released in the UK late 86) came in either Monaco Blue or Dolphin Grey. These were the only GTE Exclusive Hatches. The 88MY cars were available in Glacier White, Carmine Red, Monaco Blue and Starmist Black.
  11. I Noticed on Facebook you are still considering what to do with it. As was mentioned, get it MOT'd, take lots of photos of the known trouble spots, and post them up. If it's as solid as you reckon it is, and given the exterior paintwork & interior looks very tidy, £7500 could be a good ballpark figure.
  12. Blimey! Yours for only £46! I must try and find mine that I picked up in the dealer back in 1986. It also came with a separate 'colour card' showing both the colours available.
