1987 Marcos Mantula 15,134 (Warranted) £14,400.00 + buyers premium


This Marcos Mantula V8 was assembled by the first owner who was a garage proprietor in 1986 and registered in 1987. She has had a further 2 former keepers. The vendor is a private collector who has 28 cars in his collection. We are pleased to say that this car is one of 3 of his cars entered in our auction. This car is powered by a 3907 cc Rover V8 through a 5-speed box to a lsd. In 2009 she was subject to a no expense extensive body of restoration . Photographic records and a disc are all in the history file. The MOT history indicates to us and the vendor that the mileage of this beautiful car is correct. We have 15 MOTs (see below) from 1987, there is a gap from April 98 to 2009 when the car was laid up before it was rebuilt (old tax discs confirm the car was not taxed during that time). The history file is excellent, we also have the original build manual and the original sales invoice plus brochures. We also have an email from the vendor confirming that the car was in storage between 1998 and 2009 and the mileage is correct.

Auctioneers Notes: It was a delight to meet the vendor and his charming wife and to look at some of his collection. THIS MANTULA IS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION as are the other two cars – see Lotus and Scimitar. It is one of these cars that stun you when you see her.
