Was gonna post this the other day. Been watching it to see what it goes for. Wanted a v8 manta a for years. When I first fancied one you could get a standard manta for 2k but now the prices are daft!

thats what i thought, price is pretty high, seem to be a lot of people overpaying on ebay. One of my mates sold an old motorbike, he bought it for 3400 about 3yrs ago, it got up to 4k and we couldn't believe it, ended up at 5900 and bloke came and paid/took it away.

You can't mount them where they're supposed to be. I've always thought a pedal box would be a better alternative

Yeah I can see it needs moving but yeah, pedal box or at least a lever that isn't bending the servo coupling sideways.

Pedal boxes are an arse to fit to older vauxhalls. No room at all.
