1987 Opel Manta 400 replica 2.0 GTE
Brilliant, affordable classic. Getting scarce
After modifying the car, fitted the 400 kit and painted it white with red decals.
Fitted an original 14000 mile engine, which is bulletproof. My plan is to change it out for an XE sometime.
Rear disc brake upgrade and Volvo 4 pots fitted to the front.
No gearbox or axle faults.
Great car for the summer. I like to spectate at rally events, and the car always gets some nice feedback.
Getting ready for MoT at the end of this week. Plan to have her on the road for May.
This car was being built when I posted about the dolphin grey car above. Currently building a V8 Mantzel Manta since 2005...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
