1978 Opel Manta DeLuxe 1600S from Netherlands


Tomorrow's classic sports car


Before I bought the car, it hadn't been driven for 2 years, so the brakes had to be revised.

I had to replace the clutch, the original one was still in the car, but totally worn.

I replaced the exhaust pipe, because it was rusty and made too much noise.

There are now a few very little rust spots (only a few millimeters), I want to let them have treated before they grow larger. Also, I want to restore a poorly-restored damage by the previous owner.

General Comments:

Although the car is 25 years old, it still drives like new. It is very comfortable and each time it's fun to drive it, but the engine is a bit noisy.

It is still in original condition: first paint, never restored, interior only with minor traces of use.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
