Hey all, who knows what engine this is?
I have an engine in one of my mantas i bought at an auction near me, which i bought just for the parts:
manta 400 Bonnet
Full GTE interior
uprated spax (i think) shocks
Twin Weber Carbs
Body panels (No rust) or very little (mostly mud!)
Few other things that was with it!
The car is a 1.8 berlinetta coupe (not a GTE, just a lookalike!)
I've put up loads of pics of the engine (and interior/exterior) on my website:
I dont know what engine it is? When i bought it the engine ran ok and I drove it home. Bout a 2 months after using it the bottom end has gone (i guess cause theirs alot of rattling comnig from their).
I started to take the engine out to put a new engine in once i could afford it. Would it be better to just have the bottom end rebuilt/fixed than fitting a new engine?
I was gonna fit a simple astra gte 8v o cav sri engine if i could find a cheap one.
But cant find a cheap one so having it fixed might be better. Everything else looks perfect in the engine bay.
Theirs is tons and tons of history on the car. Stacks full (literally) bloke must have had the car checked and fixed every week and saved all the reciepts!!
Doesnt need welding.
How much would u say the car is worth like this? If i was gonna sell it?
