Sold - Opel Manta A series coupe - £450

As mentioned in the New Season Kick Off post I have two cars to sell, word must have got out, because one has already gone before I even had the chance to list it here.
It was a 1973 Opel Manta A series coupe in rare Cosmos Blue.

The car came to me following an accident as a stripped out shell, I had the front and rear valences replaced and the shell resprayed. I then spent a pleasant few weeks re-assembling it, taking the opportunity to install the wiring loom from the SR model. This meant I could install the rev counter and desirable supplementary gauges fitted on the SR.
The interior was in a charming light blue vinyl and just needed a little cleaning up.

August 2010 - Scrubbed up well

Unfortunately I never got the engine to run reliably and after a checkered early start fell out of love with the car and it became neglected. It has been rescued by long term Manta enthusiast Steve Godfrey and is returning to Oxfordshire where it has lived for most of its life.
