The 1971-1975 Opel Manta
-- was the "Sport Coupe" version of the Opel "1900" chassis,shared also with the Ascona sedan and wagons. It was designed to compete with the Ford Capri of the early 1970's, as a vehicle that offered outstanding road handling combined with some performance and economy.
The upgraded Mantas, included the plush "Luxus" interior of 1973-1974, and the performance styled "Rallye" of 1971-1974. All 1975 Manta's came factory-equipped with fuel injection and larger brakes.
Mantas are now seldom seen, outside of some of the Opel events. Parts are largely available from the specialty Opel vendors for the 1.9 liter driveline, however, body and interior parts are now becoming harder to find. Additional information for maintenance and upgrades to the Manta, can be found in the "Tech Tips" section of this website.
