My Manta A


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone from Auckland New Zealand . I came to New Zealand 10 yrs ago from Durban South Africa and brought my flame red Opel Manta with me . I bought her new from Kempsters in Durban on 20th Feb 1976 being one of the last Manta,s in stock . The car is still in mint condition , Was completely resprayed many years ago , and had the original black stripes painted back on [could,t get stickers ]

Hey there, just seen your post as I dont get on that much. See you have had your Manta for quite a while. I bought my A from a guy who had it about as long as you have had yours but I am glad he decided to sell. Mines a Citrus Yellow 1.9 SR and I am over the moon. What is yours, didnt South Affrica get some diferent models to us. I have read about the 1.6 Rallye with twin carbs as standard. It must be nice in New Zeland not to have to worry about salted wintery roads.
