Notes: Stripped the car down after bringing it home 1 day of ownership to start restoration
Fate: Bought it in 2001 from a guy at Luton Airport?? I think it had 7 previous owners.
Modifications: Restored and........modified the car. It is now a replica rally car MANTA 400, in glacier white. Motorsport alloys. An absolute hoot to drive in the wet. Love the rallycar pedigree.Done all the work myself and enjoyed the challenges that presented.Engine still 2.0 cih with some mods, cam, pulley,boost valve,electric fan,skimmed head .060, would love to modify further in the future, new engine and rothmans paintjob......sweet!
Accolades: Dont take it to shows, but take it to motorsport events, always draws attention with lots of Dads of my age getting their sons to stand beside it for a photo.Generates good conversation at rallys.....
