    It seems to me that they were sold here from about 1971 to 1974. Very cool cars.

    In that period Buick sales literature (i.e. the Color and Trim albums) consisted a Buick part and Opel part.

    Cool ad!

    I wish that Opel had made the Manta available with the six cylinder engine (same as in the Commodore). That four cylinder 1.9 liter engine was a bit as I remember it

    THe Buick Opel Manta sold pretty well here in the Philadelphia area.
    I haven't seen one of these anywhere for years.
    I guess they are just about extinct.

    Opel Mantas will always be the coolest. The ad is nice though, liked it.
