This Opel has stood the test of time relatively well and it has become fairly rare.
It originally came with a 1.6 l 4-cylinder engine, as listed on the type plate, but it now has a 2.0 S engine with 105 hp connected to a smoothly shifting four-speed gearbox.
The car has a Dutch registration and if desired it can be delivered with EU export documents, free of charge, to make it easy for a foreign new owner to register the Manta in another country.
The Dutch Periodic Vehicle Inspection expired in June 2022. In any case, for a new Periodic Vehicle Inspection the cross-car beam will have to be repaired.
The Manta drives very well, but a minor restoration is recommended to keep it in good condition throughout the upcoming years. It can also be considered a roadworthy restoration object.
The engines starts right away, shifts well and brakes well. There are some very good tyres on the wide steel rims. The lighting and windshield wipers work properly. The ignition switch now works with a push button since the key switch does not function anymore. The parafan is slightly rusty but it is not entirely rusted through. (This is the part at the base of the windshield with openings for the windshield wipers.) The left door is rusty too.
The seller can help you find certain used parts if you wish.
Throughout its 47-year (!) lifetime, the car has taken some dents and other damage of course. Feel free to have a look at the photos for yourself.
In short, some minor things need to be done (as is often the case with classic cars). A car that cannot be left out of any collection of classic cars. Still affordable, but prices are rising!
The car is located in Hengevelde, the Netherlands.
The seller can arrange relatively inexpensive transport throughout the EU. Even during the current corona-virus crisis, worldwide transport is no problem at all as this will be carried out by a professional transport company.
