Opel Manta GTE
Gary's Opel Manta GTE Automatic
This not being my Manta, I don't currently have the history on
it. I hope to have some more photos here soon.
This is an '86 D-plate (D20 GTE) automatic Opel Manta GTE with
Exclusive wheels, Irmscher Exclusive rear spoiler, twin lights and
an RMJ rear skirt. It's in really nice condition and has a leather
interior - the Recaros are the same 2-tone grey colour with the
piping, just that they're covered in hide. Pretty neat.
Last time I saw Gary the Manta GTE was down at a local garage having
some work done. When it wouldn't start we went through a list of
items to check and change so I provided a relay switch and a fuel
rail complete with new fuel filter but still couldn't get the car
After a few weeks of to-ing and fro-ing the last item on the list
was the old Bosch engine management system (primitive as they were
then) but before Gary came 'round to pick it up the mechanic
admitted to have put the wires to the fuel pump on the wrong way
round, so the fuel was continually being fed back into the tank.
Anyway, thank god he fixed it, he was going nuts and nearly sold
it - I'm glad he didn't - it's cost alot already but well worth
