Airfix box says 1982 Chevrolet Cavalier. I modified the front lights to look like Opel Ascona C. Although Opel never made liftback version of 2 door model, they had 5 door model with similar rear end. Lots of modifications had to be done to suspension, to get it lowered and front wheels steerable. Original engine block were modified to have 16 valve head, turbo, fuel injection and direct coils.

A well-executed 'what if?' concept you've built there, very nice. Perhaps what Opel could have offered as a replacement for the Manta in the 1980s?

In the 1980s Street Machine magazine here had a "Motorvation" page with sketches of things like this, they may even have done one for the FWD Ascona/Cavalier.
