For Sale - Opel Manta A Series Rear Brake Shoes - £20

On offer is a set of new old stock rear brake shoes, they are manufactured by CBS auto parts and marked up as Box 108. They are listed as suitable for; the Opel Manta A, Opel Ascona A, Opel Kadett B, Opel Rekord C, Opel Commodore A and even the Opel Olympia. Although not listed, I can see no reason why the Opel GT isn't included, as it used the same rear axle as the other cars shown above.

It is important to note that these parts have a folded section to mate with the handbrake cable and not the hook used on many of the later models. Do make sure that your vehicle has the correct hand brake cable to match, which I believe has ball ends.

Opel brake shoes - note the folded fitting

Unlike the modern equivalents these vintage items normally have a softer compound, which provides great stopping power and doesn't wear your brake drums out so rapidly. 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 £20 which even includes delivery within the UK. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first.
