With over 30 years dabbling in Alfas,I had access to a highly qualified vehicle restorer to restore 3 105 shells to the highest standard.

1 is a drop nose shell.Fully stripped,rust removed,,doors gapped,,boolid gapped,bonnet gapped.Door seals fitted to make sure doors open + close perfectly before painting.Same with bootlid..File finished outer body.All welding is butt welded and original contours retained. = floor etc.Still in bare metal with a special coating to stop surface rust.

2 is a 1750 series 2 shell with the same restoration as above car and coated in primer.

3 is a 2000 105 shell,as above,in primer.

All 3 cars have Australian compliance plates witch add value to the above cars.

These shells were built to Concourse standard with the view of completing them for showing only.

The above shells are available for purchase to serious buyers at a cost of OVER $20,000 EACH.They represent the highest of vehicle restoration which must be seen to be believed.
Many that have seen them being restored over the last 20 years, can verify the amazing transformation done by a true craftsman.
As many of you know,to restore a car does not come cheaply to a very high standard.
All the hard work is done,and many years of body restoration + heartache,can be saved by purchasing one of the above shells.
Many owners prefer doing it themselves,which is great.
Many have spent in excess of $30,000 to $40,000 to restore a 105 body to the highest standards,and have not achieved the standard of the above cars.
All that is required is painting,and fitting your own parts.

Also available at extra cost,is a very large NOS (new old stock) parts list.Some items include = inside and outside door handles,headlights,taillights,grilles,wiper motors,genuine Alfa suspension components,fuel filler boots,,

BRB,,,have to open some more drawers,,,,,,,,,,,

Clutch + brake + slave cylinders,gearbox boots,number plate lights,reverse lights assys,washer bags,indicator assys,headlight indicator assys,console + dash switches,arm rests 1300-1750,lenses,badges,some body panels,Lower sup plates,door catches,pedal rubbers + surrounds,bonnet locks + catches,rear suspension rebound straps.courtesy light assys,ETC,ETC,ETC.
Yes,all NOS above and a huge inventory of second hand and reconditioned 105 parts since 1966.
The above parts are available to shell buyers at extra cost.

This is not a fire sale.
Am not desperate to sell.
A possible new business venture exists in the Automotive game.

Also available is a great condition 2000 Berlina.Yes,still has the 4.3 LSD.$5,000
A 105 Red Sports Sedan with 10 inch slicks and wide gaurds.$15.000
A Fiat 124 Ac coupe.$10,000
A 1967 GSGT with 2 litre mechanicals.Fun Car.$20,000
A 166 complete damaged car with excellent 3 litre 24 quad cam engine and auto gearbox.$3,000
A huge stock of 105 second hand parts since 1966.

Also POSSIBLY available is my Wifes Eternity Ring ..A 1976 Red Spider to the highest standard for over $50,000.
A 1984 GTV V6 with a 3 litre 164 engine.
Can I please keep my Junior Z and Classic Rally Car.

No,Manning Motors will Not be closing down.
It will keep going,but would like to expand.

Some may laugh at the prices quoted,,,but there are serious buyers out there that know quality.The above is not junk.

Please,NO time wasters...Second hand parts enquiries are welcome,but not for the NOS parts at this stage,,,but I will listen and reply to all enquiries.

Expressions of interest can be made to Robert on 02 9939 2069 during business hours or send a PM.

Hi Ray.

Had a few people enquire about reduced price bargains,,but nothing was sold.

In a way I am glad I still have the above,but my age is starting to get in the way.
My dream of expansion did not happen,and in a way am happy it didn't.

The above items are still available
