For sale - brake pads for the Opel Manta and others

The Opel catalogue number is 1 171 1051 and the part number is 2797962. These are genuine OEM quality AC Delco parts; unlike the modern equivalents these pads have a softer compound, which provides great stopping power and dosen't wear your brake discs out so rapidly. After many miles of testing, I can confirm that their average lifespan will be around 25,000 miles for a manual transmission car, when used for regular cross country driving.

Avoid costly MOT failures and restore your vehicle to the way it was when it was new. These are now hard to find items, with just a handful of sets left in stock and I will not be replacing them, so don't hang about if this is what you need for your project.
The asking price is just £15 which even includes delivery within the UK. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first.

On offer are two front brake disks for the Opel Manta A series, they are the original ATE components which were removed from my own car and skimmed on a lathe. Since then they have remained in dry storage for more than two decades.

For sale - Opel Manta A series front discs

One disc has some rust pitting on the outer edge, its thickness is 9.8 mm.

The other disc is slightly better and its thickness is 10.4 mm.

I have checked to see if similar items can be purchased on-line through eBay, etc. but it would appear that Opel Manta A series brake discs like these are no longer available from stockist.

Manta A series brake discs - no longer available in the UK

This pair of discs are in good usable condition, perfect for an every day vehicle; being original equipment specification the steel is likely to be more durable than the equivalent pattern parts.

The asking price is £25 for the pair, which includes delivery within the UK. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first.

These are now hard to find items, stock is extremely limited and I will not be replacing them, so don't hang about if this is what you need for your project.

    Far too often I have been asked for the wiring for the ignition switch on the Opel Manta A series, usually this is the result of miscreants trying to steal a nice example of the Opel Manta A series and today was no exception.
    I really thought that I had run out of stock, but I managed to find one final item example to offer.

    It looks as if it has had a modification, but nothing that can't be put back to standard with a couple of minutes work with the soldering gun.

    These could be a very nice original accessory for someone with a white coloured vehicle or for a clubman rally car or replica. Obsolete GM spares are not exactly plentiful in the UK, stocks are limited and I will not be replacing them, so don't hang about if this is what you need.

    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.

    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.
