1970-1975 OPEL Manta A Coupe specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
Given Opel’s General Motors heritage, nobody should have been too surprised when the GT popped up in 1968 looking like a shrunken Corvette (although it had been previously seen as a concept car at the 1965 Frankfurt Motor Show). The Kadett provided most of the underpinnings while the body was built by Brissoneau & Lotz in France. The rotating headlamps were manually operated. Most GTs ended up in the US, presumably with owners who couldn’t afford to run the full-sized Corvette. Very nimble, very fun, very distinctive.
