Description 1974 Opel Other

Here is a truly rare car--a rare survivor. This 1974 Opel Manta is all original--original paint, upholstery, headliner, etc. The only "modern" bit is an aftermarket AM-FM radio, and small speakers which have been mounted without cutting anything--the doorcards and rear shelf are un-messed-with.
Of course, it is a 41-year-old car, and is not without its small problems. Ther are the usual dings (none of which have broken the paint), and a crease on the very bottom of the right rear quarter panel.  The paint has some bleached-spots--especially on the trunk lid--probably due to bird droppings.  (But the paint still shines admirably, and the Opel chrome trim rings in the steel wheels gleam.)  There is surface rust on the inside of the hood and trunk lid; otherwise the body (with the exception of the battery tray) is rust-free.  The battery tray shows the usual corrosion, but the electricals are fine--everything works--and a replacement tray is included.  There is a small--and I emphasize small--bit of rust on the left front frame rail, but it is solid and the car has just passed its New York State inspection. The front seats have a few small tears.   The dash has one crack--but an original Opel tachometer from a Rally model has been added to the dash some time in the past.   The original headliner has a few small holes.  Finally, the trunk lock has suddenly refused to open.  And, oh yeah, it will need a clutch very soon.
But the car runs very well, it shifts very well, it steers very well, and it looks good!  It has a clear New York State Title.  All it really needs is that new clutch, and you'll be ready for some fun summertime cruisin'.
PS:  Some of the photos here were taken by the previous owner, just before I purchased the car last September--hence the Pennsylvania plates and registration.  I drove the car a bit--fewer than fifty miles, and then put her up for the winter.  An opportunity has just arisen for me to procure a car I have long desired forces this sale.
The car is sold as-is, where-is.  I will be happy to assist with shipping.  A $500 deposit is required, the balance in cash before title transfer.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.  Additional photos can be provided if desired.
