This is one of the more unusual finds at the Cohort, posted by Joseph Dennis. It appears to be a battered survivor of the USSC Pro Rally circuit, which ran from 1973 to 2004. The Opel Manta was a popular machine for rally work on both sides of the Atlantic, but one Don’t exactly expect to see one sitting on the streets of Flint, MI. And given how rusty the sills are, I rather hope no one is still taking it out competitively, although looks can be deceiving.
Here’s one, in a bit better shape than number 3. Actually, it was the Manta B that really put it on the map, racing-wise, but the A got it off to a good start.
If this Opel could talk, it would have some war stories to tell. As it is, its sheet metal is doing a pretty good job of it.
