Following on from this recent post for an Opel Manta A series Rostyle wheel here is a selection of centre caps to match the same style of Rostyle wheels. To the best of my knowledge this style of centre cap was used on Opel Manta A and Opel GT models and possibly some of the earliest examples of the Opel Manta B too; typically they are seen fitted to the Opel 4 slot design of Rostyle wheel.

6 are available, they are in fair to good condition, all have scratches on the Blitz emblem and some have lost their black paint/enamel from the centre. This is nothing that can't be renewed with; a steady hand, a bit of patience and a tin of Humbrol model paint.

They are priced at £7.50 each, which these days is close to the cost of a pint down the local pub,  the price includes delivery within the UK. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first

Obsolete GM spares are not exactly plentiful in the UK, this is the very last of my stock and I will not be replacing them, so don't hang about if this is what you need for your classic Opel.

So it looks like summer has finally arrived and it is now time to switch my winter tyres for their summer cousins. Rummaging around in the shed reminded me that I still have one spare Opel Rostyle wheel and tyre left in stock.

For sale - Opel Manta A series Rostyle wheel - £40

This particular example was the second spare for my old Opel Manta A series 1900 SR. This type of  5.5J x 13" Rostyle wheel was fitted as standard to both the SR and Berlinetta variants of the Opel Manta A series and has just four slots in contrast to the later design which had eight slots.

The rim is in good condition, there is no kerbing damage, rust or any of the usual wear and tear that you would expect from a 40 year old item. It has been resprayed at some point, it is not a concours job as there is a paint sag and the black has not been masked perfectly, however it is perfectly presentable and would look good on any vehicle.

The tyre fitted is a 185/70 x 13 Trayal branded item of East European manufacture with distinctly retro tread design. It still has plenty of tread, I would estimate it at over 6mm and there is no cracking or side-wall damage visible.

Although they were once common place, today it is becoming ever more difficult to find Rostyle wheels in the UK and they would be prohibitively expensive to import. This one is priced at £40 for a quick sale, the price includes delivery within the UK.

I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.

This Opel Manta A series front grille has seen a few miles and not with the most sympathetic of owners judging by its appearance. On the plus side the plastic body is free from cracks or other damage, it was quite dirty but responded well to gentle cleaning. In the past I have been able to achieve quite stunning results with a generous application of T-Cut and copious elbow grease to grilles in the same condition.

For Sale - Opel Manta A series radiator grille

The upper brightwork is too far gone to be worth saving, but the lower brightwork is not too bad and I was surprised how just a few minutes spent with some Autosol really transformed its appearance.

I was going to scrap this item, but as this could be a useful part for restoring an everyday vehicle or track day car I have priced at £15 for a quick sale, the price includes delivery within the UK.

I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.

For a change I have something new to list for sale. This is new old stock Opel Manta A series lower front grille trim. As you would expect of a brand new part it is in excellent condition, however at some point during storage it has acquired a slight twist at one end.

For Sale - Opel Manta A series front grille trim

I am sure that once clipped into place on a front grille the twist will be removed, either way this lower grille trim would still make an excellent replacement part for a show car.

This type of spare part is in the "Hen's Teeth or Rocking Horse Manure" range of scarcity in the UK and normally extremely expensive to import. It is priced at £20 for a quick sale, the price includes delivery within the UK.

The twist should go once it is installed on the radiator grille

Continuing on the theme of Opel Manta A series rear light units, this the first pair of Opel Manta A series rear indicator units that I have prepared. They are in very good condition, the plastic body is free from cracks and damage. Although they were quite dirty initially, they responded well to a polish with T-cut and cleaning. There are a couple of patches of paint over-spray on the rear of the body and a small "bald" spot, should you want you could blow over it with a smidgen of grey primer and no-one would ever be the wiser.

For Sale - Opel Manta A series rear indicators

The bright chrome like trim trim looks fine at a distance, but close up scrutiny will reveal some areas around the perimeter where the surface has become milky. Unfortunately I don't think that you can do much to restore this this style of brightwork, but please feel free to correct me if you know better.

Opel Manta A series rear indicators - very clean

The lenses were in equally good shape, T-cut has removed all the dirt and given them a lovely shine. There is some light fading of the red on what will be the top surface when they are installed in a car. They all do this to a certain extent and should be remembered that these are 40 year old spares now.

Opel Manta A series rear indicators - lovely shine after T-cut

I believe this first pair are quite simply the best units you will find for sale without forking out big money for brand new old stock items. Either way this pair of Manta A reversing lights will still make an excellent replacement part for an everyday classic or track day car. Plus there is also the option of repainting the silver trim in silk black, just like the Manta A GT/e, or alternatively in body colour for a custom finish.

Apparently you would be hard pressed to find a new car today with manual windows, oh how the World has changed. Back in the 70s, electric windows were the sole reserve of executive cars and limousines, for regular cars the hand crank or "window winder" was king.

For Sale - Opel Manta A series window winders

On many Opel Manta A series cars the plastic knob on the end of the winder is prone to wear and breaking off, worst of all it isn't a repairable part either.

Fortunately I have a few reasonable salvaged examples available for the Opel Manta A series and these should also be suitable for the Opel Ascona A series too. They have all been used, so expect to see some light scratching on the surface and a little wear too.
They are priced at £10 each or £15 for the pair, the price includes delivery within the UK.

I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.

Tying in neatly with my recent post about Opel Manta A series door trims, is this new old stock rubber strip for the passenger side door. As it is new and has never been used it is in perfect condition, although there is a little dust from many years of storage.
This rubber trim would make an excellent replacement part for a Sunday driver or concours competition car.

It is reasonably priced at £20, the price includes delivery within the UK.

I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.
