For sale - Opel Manta A series rear shock absorber - £15

I know these items would usually be sold as a pair but there's just the one available and it seems a shame to scrap a new old stock part. I have found a UK supplier with additional stock here

For sale - Monroe Opel shock absorber, fits many models - £15

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.

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.

This is a pair of reconditioned front outriggers for the Opel Manta A series. They are a strengthening brace which bolts to the front chassis rails ( using the threads in the front bumper mounting irons ) and the lower front valence.

For sale - Opel Manta A series chassis outriggers - £25

On most Opel Manta A series the chassis outriggers will have corroded away to nothing, fortunately these were salvaged many years ago, then blasted and powder coated in a silk black colour, very similar to the original finish.
They have been dry stored for the last 25 years and as you would expect are in first class condition, making a very nice detailing piece for a show car.

Chassis outriggers - mount to items 10 & 13 in this GM illustration

Confusingly, the equally rust prone front jacking point on the Opel Manta A series is sometimes also referred to as a chassis outrigger, but these parts are not front jacking points for the Opel Manta A series.

For sale - Manta A series chassis outriggers, these are not jacking points.

They are priced at £25 for the pair, 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.

I have never seen these offered for sale in the UK or elsewhere. Obsolete GM spares are not exactly plentiful in the UK, stocks are limited and I will not be replacing them, so don't hang about if this is what you need for your car.
