On offer is one brand new "Ascona" script boot lid badge, this type is held in place by two raised spigots which will mate with pre-drilled holes in the bodywork when fitted with tiny plastic inserts. The part numbers for this item are 8 968 927  and 3459304.

For Sale - Opel Ascona badge - £7.50

It took me a little research, but as can be seen from the pictures below, this type of boot lid badge was used on the Ascona A series produced from 1970-75. If you have a vehicle of this vintage you may be interested to hear that I also have a new matching "19" badge and a number of used versions of the "SR" script too.
This is truly a rare badge for what has also become a rare car. As this is new old stock, they are in excellent condition, just the thing to add the icing on the cake to your restoration, or to replace missing or damaged trim. Reasonably priced at £7.50, which includes recorded delivery costs within the UK. I can send to some European / North American locations too, but please ask for a quote first.

For Sale - all these badges are currently in stock

On offer are a pair of refurbished cross-member braces, suitable as replacement for those used on the Opel Manta A series and Opel Ascona A series. They are genuine Opel parts and match catalogue part numbers 3 06 000 and 3 06 001.

For Sale - Manta A series front suspension outriggers

Both have previously been sand blasted, powder coated and given a top coat of gloss enamel for good measure. I believe the bushings were replaced at the same time, they have no cracks or signs of shrinkage, the metal inserts are clean and rust free. These front suspension outrigger / braces have remained in storage for around 25 years and are therefore in exceptionally good condition. Normally this type of suspension component is usually little more than a rusty mess with dried out bushes and seized bolts. These cross-member braces could be a boon for anyone planning a front suspension rebuild or full nut and bolt restoration.

Manta A series outrigger - rubber bushes replaced


Given the rarity and desirability of this all too hard to find parts I have priced them at £60 for the pair, which includes delivery costs within the UK.
I can send to some European / North American locations, but please ask for a quote first.

I planned to list these parts as Opel Manta items, I was convinced these were for the rear control arms, but further investigation of the part number has revealed them to be for the front suspension on the Vauxhall Cavalier Mk 2 and the Opel Ascona C series, positively modern by the standards of this blog, whatever next - listing parts from the front wheel drive era of GM production.

On offer is a pair of front suspension control arm bushes for the Vauxhall Cavalier Mk 2 and Opel Ascona C series. Made from rubber with the following part number on the inner surface - 90157161.

You can verify my information here and you will find further details about the equivalent part number 3 52 323 here where there's even an exploded diagram from the factory parts book.

On offer are parts for a large bore rally exhaust system for the Opel Manta B series and Opel Ascona B series. They is no branding but the main resonator box has a label marked "Opel Manta Coupe 2000".

For Sale - Opel Manta Coupe 2000 big bore exhaust system

It is made from heavy gauge mild steel, finished in a silk black finish and the overall diameter is 2", I believe the factory fitted exhausts were slightly smaller at 1 7/8". The system comprises; a manifold / downpipe section, a main silencer box with over axle pipe and a rear resonator box with straight tail pipe. Both resonator boxes are fitted with skidded braces to provide additional impact protection to cope with the rigours of fast road and rally driving. The front pipe section has been modified, the original purchaser chose to customise it by incorporating a large cherry bomb silencer. In my opinion, it's all a bit of a dog's dinner and illustrates the dangers of over confidence with a MIG welder.

Front section - the dangers of over confidence with a MIG welder

The parts were originally bought for someone's aborted Opel Manta A series custom project, although the markings and configuration lead me to believe that this is an Opel Manta Coupe / Ascona B series system. I know there are small differences between the coupe and hatchback variants, so please study the pictures closely and ask questions if it helps you make certain you are buying the appropriate part.

For Sale - Opel Manta B big bore exhaust, main silencer

Given the rarity and desirability of these all too hard to find parts I have priced these parts at £75 which includes delivery costs within the UK. Similar items are listed on eBay for around £180 for a complete system.

For Sale - Opel Manta B big bore exhaust, rear silencer

Due to weight and incompatibility issues with left hand drive vehicles this part is only available to UK based buyers.

On offer is a sealed beam headlamp, identical to the popular Lucas SB5712 sealed beam unit, used as the inner main beam unit on twin headlight cars. It is specified as a 12 volt 50W 5 3/4" unit with a vintage domed glass front with a 2 pin electrical connector. It is visually the same as the popular Lucas model but manufactured by Thorn.

For Sale - Lucas 5712 by Thorn.

So what are the advantages sealed beam units?
  • Reflector will not rust.... no more MOT failures due to low light output or poor beam spread.
  • Glass doesn't get dirty or mist up on the inside.... where you can't clean it.
  • Earth connection is on a spade connector.... doesn't depend on a lamp making good contact with the reflector body.
  • Rubber sealing boot not required.... no hidden gremlins with the electrical connections.

On offer is a matched pair of chrome style door mirrors, suitable as replacement for the door mirrors used on the Opel Manta A series, Opel Ascona A series, some Opel Rekord C series, Opel Commodore A series and possibly even the Opel GT and Opel Kadett B series. They are Opel branded and constructed from alloy with a glossy hard chrome finish, they have the following part numbers on their bases respectively - 3439461 and 3439462.

For Sale - a matched pair of chrome style door mirrors

It will be immediately apparent that these are used items, but given the price that these items now retail at, I can but imagine the wailing and gnashing of teeth if I were to just lob these in the scrap bin, without offering them up for sale first.
The passenger side mirror has quite a few rust spots on the mirroring (see pictures), the rest of the body is very presentable though. The drivers side mirror has a single spot in the mirroring, the head has a dent at the base and two dings from stones or similar objects, the base is reasonably presentable barring the odd blister or two.

For Sale - a bargain at £25 for both

Given the rarity and desirability of these all too hard to find parts, I have priced them at £25 which includes delivery costs within the UK.

Passenger side - leopard skin rust spots

If you are looking for a perfect condition brand new matched pair, I can't help you, although you can find them listed on eBay for around £100 a pair. If your budget is meagre, or if you have the skill to change the glass for new, these are the items to buy, for a knock-out price.
I can send to some European / North American locations too, but please ask for a quote first.

Driver's side - less rusty, but dented

For Sale - Opel Manta round mirror nearly new condition

This mirror is so clean I thought it was new old stock at first, but on close inspection I realised it was used but in exceptionally good condition. The mirror glass is very good and the only flaws on the body I can find are; a cluster of tiny blisters on the base and a stone ding on the head section.

For Sale - mirrored surface is near perfect

Only the left hand or passenger side (UK) is available, please don't ask about a matched pair in this condition, I can't help you, although you might find them listed on eBay for around £100 a pair.

For Sale - a genuine Opel item

This will be the driver's side item on European left hand drive vehicles and it may prove to be more popular with European buyers and I can send to some European / North American locations, but please ask for a quote first.
