The Manta A was released in September 1970, a competitor to the Ford Capri, featuring two-door coupé styling and distinctive round taillights. It took its name, and a few minor styling cues, from the Manta Ray concept car of 1961 which also famously influenced the 1968 Chevrolet Corvette C3. In the UK, the first Manta was sold only as an Opel and was normally equipped with a 1. 6 or a 1. 9-litre CIH engine. In the United States, only the larger, 1. 9-litre, engine option was offered. The Manta came with either a four-speed manual or a three-speed TH-180 automatic transmission and came to be known as one of the best-handling cars in its class, going on to win many rallying events in both Europe and America.

Registered new on 1st November 1973 this wonderful example was restored in Northern Ireland in 2018 and was imported back to England following the restoration. Presented in its original right hand drive guise the Manta was acquired by the vendor in July 2018 and has resided in his private collection ever since. During his tenure the Opel has been dry stored and maintained where necessary. The paintwork, engine bay and interior are all in very good order showing little sign of age and it is reported to run and drive as it should. Currently showing 54, 422 miles on the odometer this Manta A comes complete with a history file including various sundry bills, old MoT records and the current UK registration document. Very few examples are presented in this condition and as such we expect this Opel to be keenly contested at auction.
