1980 Silver LHD 2.0L Manta S Berlinetta Hatch for sale. Only 15K miles.


Recommended Posts

Interesting that it's a Manta S Berlinetta. No SR steering wheel

In the UK I think that model designation was dropped by 1978, we got SR Berlinetta.

There's some larger photos on the Danish website selling it:

No rev counter etc, sunroof or alloys either. Interesting to see 'Sports Hatch' badge at the bottom of the B pillars as per the Cavalier S/H. 

Maybe the side repeaters were a Danish or Scandinavian requirement.

It may be a quirk of different market specs, but I'd say with the chrome bumpers and fake wood trim on the doorcards that is an earlier car than 1980, it's a 78/early 79 car I'd say.

Maybe its been patched up with odds n ends from other cars, strange that there is no chrome trim at the rear, (Bottom lip of tailgate & above rear lights) or maybe they never had them on the Opel hatch. Looks sweet, but steering wheel is on the wrong side..... What the heck is that all about 😆

They never had the chrome trim around the rear that was cavalier only.

Ah, always suspected the Cavaliers were a cut above the others. 😉
