Now to figure out the year. I'm going to take a stab and say '73 from what I gather on wiki. It has the corner lights and rubber bumpers.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opel_Manta

It also says they were sold in the US through Buick dealers.

I have an old early 70s GM brochure somewhere with the then-new GM lineup which has a Buick Opel GT in it.

Vegas and Opels (at least US sold ones) shared the same drivetrains IIRC.

Here's a 69 ad for one.


2010 2SS/RS Auto, Sunroof, Engine Cover. Transformer Edition package.
2013 ZL1 ragtop #5478. 1 of 54 CRT M6 'verts.
