The Manta was a rear wheel drive sports car, which was known for its great handling, winning many rallies worldwide. The name 'Manta' came from the Manta Ray concept car from 1961, which also famously influenced the 1968 Chevrolet Corvette C3 (both Chevrolet and Opel have General Motors as their parent company).

In great order throughout with 'SOLID & ORIGINAL' boot, floor pans and sills. Drives superb with a lovely gearbox and clutch.
Was subject to an insurance claim in 1999 for minor panel damage when values were low which has no doubt contributed to the great condition the vehicle is in today.
Must be viewed to be fully appreciated. Any inspection welcome. Not to be missed.
