Opel Manta CC

The Opel Manta CC

Opel Manta CCThe Manta CC, introduced in 1978, was the versatile Manta hatchback or Combi Coupe (hence the CC tag) the same vehicle as the Vauxhall Cavalier Sports Hatch. The pricetag was just under £5000. The bootspace was better lined than the Coupe being properly carpetted with the tyre stowed flush under the floor and had a solid metal parcel shelf that was ideal for mounting big speakers. I saw a gold Manta CC at Bug Jam '87 with a pair of 12" speakers in a nicely modified parcel shelf.

Starting in Berlinetta form with chrome trim and bumpers etc the Manta CC followed the same design changes as the coupe. With plastic bumpers, new trim and the later GTE spec with body coloured bumpers, velour Recaros, 14" Ronal alloys and the Irmscher Exclusive with black/silver alloys, quad lamps and relocated number plate.

The Irmscher Exclusive GTE hatchback is less common than the Exclusive coupe, having had a shorter production run.
