Manta Mirage for sale, New Zealand

There can’t be many Manta Mirages in New Zealand, let alone ones that are nice and clean looking like this one… The seller tells me they think it’s in fact the only one in the country. It’s factory built and running a “reputed 400 HP” Corvette engine, with original paint and pinstriping, and the asking price is a very reasonable $19,000 US (or about $29,000 NZ$). If you’re interested, drop a line to OA.Devonport@xtra.co.nz. International shipping can be arranged.

    wasn’t there some cheesy 80’s tv show where one of these was driven by a hasselhoff wannabe?

  2. I think you’re thinking of the Manta Montage, which was on Hardcastle & McCormick…

    I think you’ve got it! Man, you’ve really got a handle on the useless 80’s trivia. I thought I was the only one who remembered that.

    No, you are close though. The “Cody Coyote” as it was called on Hardcastle and McCormick was actually based on the Manta Montage, not the Mirage. Danielle Hugh Kelly is a much better and wider ranging actor than Hasslehoff.

    WHAT KIND OF TRANSMISSION IS IN THERE? AND WOULD IT FIT IN AN AZTEC GT?

  7. It’s probably a Corvair transmission, but you can also use a ZF or Porsche transmission. It would not fit the Aztec GT, which is a rear-engine rather than mid-engine car.
