Early manta B Coupe or Cavalier Coupe?

Recommended Posts

Went to the Ashvale in Aberdeen for fish & chips, excellent by the way, went to pay and spotted this rather large photo on the wall and couldn’t help but notice the car parked outside the Capitol in Aberdeen, is this a cavalier coupe or early Manta B?

it made me smile 👍

Did the manta not have over riders on bumpers? Can't see any?  

Cavaliers did not, but grainy pic......


My original SRB 1978 did not.

Does look like the number plate is in right spot for Manta.

Yes Manta B, Cavalier had all silver rostyle wheels from factory Manta had them painted as in the photo

My sportshatch rostyles were painted in a dark silvery grey, hard to explain the colour.
