Sold - Opel Manta A series Late Front Passenger 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.

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 is the passenger's seat (UK RHD) from the set, it is generally in quite good condition. The end of the seat 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.

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.
