Sold - Opel Manta A series Late Front Driver's Seat - £20

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.

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 is 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.

Wear to seat base and bolster, this was from a driver's car

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.

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.

Obsolete GM spares are not exactly plentiful in the UK, this is the very last of my stock and I will not be replacing them, so don't hang about if this is what you need for your classic Opel.
