This is a reproduction Opel Manta A series tyre pressure door sticker. The original would have been mounted on the inside face of the (UK) passenger side B post, just below the door striker plate. As they are just a paper label, they rarely survive decades of use and multiple resprays.

This reproduction label would make a nice period correct addition for a show car. It is priced at £5, 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 is a part of a set of salvaged seats from a very late model variant of the Opel Manta A series. This style of seat is more substantial than those found on the earlier cars; the material has larger ventilation holes with a more pronounced grain to the leatherette. Some people like this style of seat for their support and comfort, whilst others hate them for not looking "sporty" enough.

For sale - late model Manta A series seat - £20

Regardless of aesthetics if you are an originality freak you will want these rare seats suitable for later models of the Opel Manta A series, including the SR, Luxus and Deluxe models. In my experience, this style of seat is generally only seen (in the UK) on those variants made during the 1974-75 period. The chassis number for such vehicles would usually begin with a 598 or 595 prefix and would correspond to; M, N and even P or R suffix registration plates.

They are likely to be only suitable for the following applications:
  • Opel Manta A series
  • Opel Ascona A series
This the passenger's seat (UK RHD) from the set, it is generally in quite good condition. The end of the set back release lever is missing and there's a tiny bit of foam showing by the recliner knob. It could be really useful for anyone with a left hand drive vehicle as a drop in replacement for a tired seat on a daily driver.

Seat in great condition, but there's a tiny bit of foam showing here

I suspect the headrests are non-genuine, they're covered with a slightly smoother pattern of black leatherette, they are a very tight fit and there's no collar present around the mounting points.

The end of the tilt release lever is missing

This late model Manta seat is available for £20; delivery is possible within the UK. but will be expensive due to size and weight, it might also be possible to send multiple items via pallet. Alternatively I can arrange for a rendezvous around the Midlands area for cost only. Likewise I could meet continental enthusiasts in the region around Calais or Dunkirk, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite expensive to do.

This could be a good drop in replacement for a left hand drive Manta

This the driver's seat (UK RHD) from the set, as can be seen from the images it is in poor condition. The seat base is cracked and split in multiple places and the bolster has worn right through to the horse hair. I suspect this came from a keen driver's car! It is sold with the intention that it will be for restoration purposes, this is reflected in the low asking price.

For sale - Vauxhall Opel C.I.H. cylinder head - £75

It has a single fin on the front face, which according to this guide would make it from the 2.0 litre version, however it is also marked S19, so it might be for the 1.9S variant. Check the attached images as what you see is what you will receive.

It is priced at £75, 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 a very high sum due to weight.

It's great to see an spare part emerging into daylight after many years of hibernation; like this anti-roll bar for the Opel Manta A series which was part of a job lot of salvaged parts I saved many years ago. At the time it received a very quick session with a wire brush before getting a quick squirt of black paint, this wasn't meant to be a concours finish, just something to make storage in the loft a less messy proposition.

For sale - Opel Manta A series front anti-roll bar

Today it is still reasonably rust free for a 40 year old part and serves as quite a tribute to the durability of Hammerite Smoothrite paint.
There is some deeper rust pitting under the finish, especially where the rubber bushes would fit over it. Given that these days most owners today are aiming for an equal level of detailing under their vehicles as elsewhere; I would be inclined to get it blasted and powder coated for the ultimate in appearance and durability.

Some deeper rust pitting under the finish

It looks like whoever originally removed it from the vehicle had trouble separating it from the lower front control arm bushes as you can see some scars that appear to be from a hack saw blade.
Some of these are quite deep, as part of the restoration you may want to consider filling them with weld and grinding back.

Hack saw blade scars?

The asking price for this anti-roll bar is £20, because it is a heavy and bulky that price doesn't include tracked delivery costs within the UK, but I will gladly find the price for you if let me know your post code. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.
