Barn Find: 1973 Opel Manta

The first generation Opel Manta "A" was a simple and light two-door fastback that shared a chassis and oily bits with the Opel Ascona sedan platform. It is a classic that, for whatever reason, doesn't get many accolades these days, but would make a great occasional driver and weekend cruiser to fill the empty spot in your garaage.  Find this 1973 Opel Manta here on eBay bidding for $800 reserve-not-met located in South Hadley, MA with 1 day to go.
