    Are there any books on the Opel Manta?


    Irmscher Man

    There have been a few books printed that feature the Manta. Naturally, some of the best ones are from Germany but there are several english language books that are worth picking up, if you can find them.

    Occasionally, we do find surplus copies of some of these books and will keep a small supply of them in the club shop - click here to visit the shop.

    Here is a list of some of the known publications:
