Perfect Gogi.

Opel's Manta A debuted in 1970, to compete with Ford's Capri.

It was the norm that right-hand-drive Opels were sold as Vauxhalls back then. However as an exception, the Manta was still sold as Opel.

It had lovely round tail lights.



The frame, all the mechanicals, dash, front seats, and many other parts were shared between the Manta and the Ascona.

It came with 1.2, 1.6 and 1.9 liter cam-in-head engines, ranging from 60 bhp to 105 bhp.

The Manta was known to be one of the best handling cars in its class. It won many rallies in Europe and the United States.

The 1971-74 Rallye sport model came with a black bonnet and fog lamps.

The high end GT/E had Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection, fog lamps and a lower front spoiler.



An even rarer variant was the 1971 TE2800 built in Belgium with an Opel 2.8L CIH straight-six engine, larger brakes, wider track, flared fenders and Recaro seats. Only 24 of these were made.

Ram - That arrangement exists even today, all Opel's (And recently Holden's too) are re-badged as Vauxhall in the UK market.

Actually, this only started after 1975, when the next gen Ascona, Manta came out and Vauxhall stopped making shrinked american replica rust buckets

Hi Ajmat,

Its the BMC - Leyland P76 (1973-75).
P76 was a good car that suffered from a poor image. It was the first Australian made car to use an all-Alloy engine.

ID 303 looks remarkably like a 39 Chevy, but it isnt quite there. Will have to do some digging.

ID 304 is a 46 Ford Station Wagon.



ID 305 Also looks like a Ford woody to me. A 52 Country Squire.

It isn't a Chevy for sure. Hint. See the decals grayed out see the hub caps.

Well, 2 out of 3 aint too bad! The name is on the tip of my toungue, I can 100% relate to that hood ornament coupled with that smart slant at the top sides of the grille. Not a Lincoln right?

Not a Lincoln for sure. The badge on the grill says something else.
