This Sykes Pickavant tool with the part number is 045400 is designed to facilitate the removal and re-fitting of the hollow door hinge pins fitted to many classic GM Opel and Vauxhall vehicles. This particular tool was used on an Opel Manta A series, but the list of other vehicles it could be used on is extensive.

For sale - Syke Pikavant hinge pin removal tool - £20

It has signs of use but is still functional, 3 extractor pins are included, one has lost its knurled nut, I have vague recollections that it ended up lost inside a rusty door pin, additional ones are still available here if required. The items shown in the pictures are what you will receive.

For sale - Vauxhall Chevette Stromberg carburettor tool - £10

It has little signs of use and has probably only been used once or twice in the last 40 years. The item shown in the pictures is what you will receive.

This is the battery clamp from an Opel Manta A series, it is a genuine salvaged Opel part. It would be suitable for the following applications:
  • Opel Manta A series - '70-'75
  • Opel Ascona A series - '70-'75
Due to design oversight and the action of lead acid battery chemistry makes the battery tray area highly prone to corrosion. This clamp is often lost from cars during battery replacement; without it there is the real risk that riding over a bump could cause the battery terminals to touch the bonnet and create sparks, a short circuit, voltage surges or even a fire.

For sale - Opel Manta A series battery clamp - £17.50

This clamping piece has been sand blasted and powder coated in a highly durable silk black finish. These measures should ensure that this component will provide many more decades of service and be a handsome addition to a show car engine bay.

This is the special fascia from an Opel Manta A series SR fitted with the tachometer a.k.a. rev counter. It would be suitable for the following applications:
  • Opel Manta A series - '70-'75
  • Opel Ascona A series - '70-'75
The rev counter was only fitted to the higher specification models of the Opel Manta A series; viz. the Rallye / SR, Berlinetta, GT/e (left hand drive only) and ultra rare Broadspeed Turbo conversion. The rev counter unit was also available as a dealer installed aftermarket option as detailed in the original factory manual here.

For sale - Opel Manta A series rev counter fascia - £15

The lower specification models of the Opel Manta A series in the UK had no tachometer, instead an electro-mechanical clock was fitted. In order to adjust the time on the clock, the clear plastic fascia was equipped with a push in spigot to move the hands.
Many enthusiasts like to fit a rev counter in place of the clock, as a  tachometer is often seen as being more in keeping with the sporty image of the Opel Manta. Unfortunately if you don't replace the fascia at the same time time you will be left with the odd looking spigot poking out of the centre.

For sale - Opel Manta rev counter fascia, no spigot in the middle - £15

Although I have a number of spare instrument panels, all stock of rev counters have now sold out.  This fascia still remains, so it might be a useful part for someone, perhaps if they were building a custom instrument cluster.

It is priced at £15, the price includes delivery within the UK. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.

This is the clock from an Opel Manta B series, no doubt it will be compatible with the Opel Ascona B series and possibly a variety of other GM/Vauxhall/Bedford/Opel vehicles too. It is a genuine GM Opel branded part, made in Germany by VDO and the part number is 9287250.

For sale - Opel Manta B series clock - £15

Not only is it is in good cosmetic condition, I connected it to a jumper pack and left it on "soak test" for a week, during which it ran reliably and remained totally accurate throughout the test.

For sale - Opel Manta B series clock, runs accurately - £15

This unit would make a good addition to a show or daily driver car; furthermore with a custom housing it would make a stunning and practical desk clock.

This is the Haynes workshop manual for the Vauxhall Chevette, it covers the 1256 cc versions produced from 1975 to 1983, including the Chevanne. There is a supplemental chapter at the end covering the little differences made to the post-face lifted models. It should be noted that the HS and HSR homologation special models are not included.

For sale - Vauxhall Chevette Haynes manual - £10

It is in really good condition, there is odd oil smudge here and there, otherwise it is as clean as a whistle. Whether that was down to the Chevette's outstanding reliability and rugged build or the owner's laziness is a moot point.

This is the Haynes workshop manual for the Opel Ascona B series and Opel Manta B series and in true Haynes style, has a rather fine cutaway drawing by Terry Davey of the 4 door saloon version of the Opel Ascona B on the cover.

For sale - Opel Ascona & Manta B  Haynes manual - £10

This particular version of the manual must have been produced very early in the production life of these cars as it only covers the period from September 1975 to 1977.

It is in really good condition, there is a small muddy mark on the corner of the back page, otherwise it is as clean as a whistle.

It is priced at £10, which includes delivery to a UK address. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.
