Opel Manta street/track

Recommended Posts

Belkits Opel Manta was built as a street car. That meant lowering the suspension and changing the wheels. Rims are from Beemax Volvo 240. Body color is Tamiya TS-100 and side stripes came from Hobby Design.

looks terrific, I especially like the Recaro seats, I remember when they actually had those colors when they were a "big deal" in the 70's.  Very nice.

Hi!

Very clean built. Impressive interior... but the exterior paint wins the trophy. The consistency of the gloss and smoothness, even with so many creases, rivets, folds and all: Bravo!

Great looking build. Interesting to see something we wouldn't normally see on this side of the "Pond". The interior detailing is very impressive. As an aside, I had an early '80's Camaro Z28 with the Recaro seat option with the same striping in a different color. I always thought that looked good.
