  • Opel Manta A series Deluxe



    This was the most basic model available and was usually equipped with a 1780cc engine and manual transmission.
    As the Manta is the type of car suitable for modification the 1780cc engine is often replaced by a 1900cc or 2000cc example.
    Coloured vinyl interiors were available as an optional extra and although rare, examples exist; with these vehicles, the headlining is still coloured white.
