Opel Ascona B 16v Turbo.
New project forces the sale of a totally unique car with an unbelievable spec sheet.
Car is rot free in all areas, chassis swan necks, cills, crossmembers and jacking points which are all the problem areas in these cars.
The underside has been undersealed from new and the original paint is still there underneath.
I am the third owner from new and the specs are as follows:-
Fully rebuilt z20ler engine with new uprated turbo core unit.
Engine runs on Megasquirt ms2 v3 management system and is mapped for around 240bhp, car weighs prob 1200kg max so call it an easy 200bhp per ton? A very, very quick car!
Omega gearbox with quickshift operation with hydraulic clutch conversion.
Brand new bespoke propshaft.
Fully rebuilt rear differential with brand new crown and pinion.
Polybushed propshaft mount and centre bearing doughnut.
Polybushed front wishbones.
Front vented disc conversion.
Rear disc brake conversion.
Bilstein fast road suspension all round with Spax springs.
Interior fan has been uprated and is good for modern day operation.
Full chicago grey interior from a Manta gte.
Japan Racing alloy wheels with Toyo T1-R tyres, sticks to the road like glue.
The car has cost in excess of 20k to build and is perfectly capable of being a daily driver, I use it regularly and it gets attention everywhere!
The only downside of the car is the paint work is starting to show some age due to a below par water trap being used in the paint process, presents well but would be perfect with a future respray.
There are some small paint blisters on the rear arch also but not a major issue.
Car has full mot and is ready for the show season.
Plenty more pics and videos on request, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
