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.

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.

UPDATES:

11/11/14 - NOW SOLD!

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.

None so far

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.
