Summer Fun: 1980 Manta Montage

Another day…another kit car. But this is a Manta Montage — and we’ve had a history of posting these things and then getting random emails from people looking for one for sale. It usually comes in all caps and says something like “IM LOOKING FOR A MONTAGE. MY UNCLE HAD ONE AND ONCE GAVE BRUCE MCLAREN A HIGH FIVE AT THE POUGHKEEPSIE REGIONAL AIRPORT. IS YOUR MANTA STILL AVAILABLE?” Well…here is one for you guys. Find this 1980 Manta Montage bidding for $5000 reserve-not-met in Topsham, ME via eBay.

From the seller:


This McLaren is a kit car on a VW chassis, Dodge Shelby ,4cylinder motor with a turbo. The car runs, drives, stops. It needs paint, interior and the clutch adjusted. This is a custom 1 off car, they did not make these as a roadster. This is a very rare and unique car. You will have the only one like it! Draws a huge crowd! Any questions..
