1984 Manta Mirage (Maria)
Last updated Mar 17, 2009
I saw one of these in High School and you know when you are in High School you don't have the money to get something like that.so I had to wait. Anyway now I have it and have put about 14000 miles on it cruising. Time this summer for some repairs to be done. Since i got the red car, I found another one in "crate" form, never built. The body on it is in very good shape but will have to be repainted. I will swap the body off the red car and put the Yellow one on it. Have plans for an F1 steering wheel with the display in it so that the car can come apart for work easily if needed. I will have these cars for a very long time upgrading them and making them better and better.
The red car is in basic form for a kit. SW gauges, 327 SBC almost stock, 4 speed, 4 wheel disc brakes, and a total weight of approximately 1800 lbs.
It's a kit car, so anything goes!!!!!!
Plans are for a BBC 427 possibly and 5 speed. Total rewiring. And lowering to standard height, 4" in the front and 4.5" in the rear. All corvette suspension in the future too.
As it is now it is too temperamental to shift fast so some linkage work is going to happen this summer while it is too hot to drive this summer(no A?/C). So garage time is coming.
