Footnotes

  • General Motors' new European medium-size saloon debuted in August 1975 as the Opel Ascona with Vauxhall's equivalent - the Cavalier - following a few months later. Built in two- and four-door variants, the newcomer followed the original Ascona's front-engine, rear-drive layout but was longer, wider and roomier. The existing range of four-cylinder engines continued, as did the stylish Manta Berlinetta (coupé) on the new floor pan. In 1982 the Manta became available with General Motors' modern 'Family II' 1.8-litre over-head camshaft engine and despite the arrival of a new transverse engine/front-wheel drive Ascona/Cavalier platform, remained in production substantially unchanged until 1988.

    An automatic transmission model supplied new via G H Horn & Co Ltd of Stockport, this right-hand drive Manta Berlinetta has been kept in long-term storage in a dehumidified and heated garage, and in recent years has only been used for trips to classic vehicle shows. Described as very solid and well cared for, driving very well, the car currently displays a total of 33,000 miles on the odometer and is offered with service booklet.

    No reserve.
