Sold - Opel Manta A series Late Rear Seat - £30

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 - £30

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

The seat back has the obligatory sunlight crack; in this case it was not very well hidden under a piece of Gaffa tape. The patch has long departed and only its ghostly glue residue remains.

The squab though is in very nice condition. I would guess that whoever owned the car didn't have any kids.

This late model Manta seat is available for £30; 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.
