1979 Opel Manta SR Berlinetta 2.0 from UK and Ireland


A very underrated sports car


Head gasket blew.

Some electrical problems with the lights and air conditioning.

Headlights had to be replaced with twin headlights.

General Comments:

The car looks lovely and is cheap to spruce up.

There are plenty of spare parts around and it is very cheap to replace worn or broken parts.

The interior is red suede, red vinyl and has GT/E clocks.

The car is very comfortable and everything is within reach.

The car is very nippy and fun to drive in all weathers.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
