  • Opel Manta A series Berlinetta






    Introduced in October 1972, the Berlinetta was designed to appeal to those seeking the ultimate in Manta A series luxury.
    It had the 1.9S engine, a vinyl roof, a sunroof (Webasto or steel), nylon cloth upholstery, sports wheels, headrests, driver's door mirror, rubber strips on the bumper, and a rev counter instead of a clock.
    The cloth interiors are highly prone to sun damage and excessive wear; frequently they are replaced with plain black vinyl SR or Deluxe interiors.
