Road Rally Manta For Sale
this Road/Rally Manta for sale - It is advertised on a site dating
back to November, so whether it's still available or not I don't
know, but I was so impressed with the spec on it that I thought
you'd best see it.
It's an 84/85 Manta GTE coupe with tax & MOT and the owner,
from North Wales, was selling it to fund a Manta 400 replica for
competition. This little beauty has apparently been used for the
ocassional event itself, so it's got some pedigree.
The engine had only just been rebuilt (approx 2000 miles ago) with
an overbore to nearly 2100cc with new rings, shells etc. plus a
stage 3 head (standard exhaust but bigger inlet valves), heavy duty
clutch, lightened flywheel, Kent OP214 cam, solid lifters, vernier
pulley, 4-2-1 heat-wrapped exhaust manifold, Ashley competition
big bore exhaust, induction kit, boost valve, PMC ECU, re-cored
radiator and electric fan.
And that's just the engine so far!
It's also got a rebuilt rear axle with 3.67 limited slip diff,
Vectra solid rear discs with Astra Mk4/Zafira callipers, good old
Carlton 2.2 vented discs at the front (cross-drilled too) and a
Monza master cylinder.
It's been lowered, has Bilstein shocks and (near) full set of neoprene
bushes, sitting on 15x7 Revolution 5 spoke alloys with 215/50 15s.
It looks like an i240 with decals, twin lamps, Irmscher Exclusive
rear spoiler, panel & bumper, '400' mirrors, and inside it has
a 6-point Safety Devices roll cage and Britax harnesses
The guy even lists all the bad points (honesty still lives) and
goes on to mention rust, rips, tears and welds.
It's quite awesome, so if you want to have a look go and check
