    Opel to a good home, free

    1971 Opel 1900 coupe (Manta body before it was called a Manta). Auto trans. Former wife, for whom I gave care for 25 years, always had an Opel, including one new one, a Manta Luxus, a 1974. Loved the exhaust sound. She was a renaissance woman; became stricken with cerebral multiple sclerosis; county required nursing home care when she was 49, seven years ago. Would like the car to go to a good home. 83,300 miles. It has been parked for about nine years but engine turned over nicely by hand last fall. It was repainted the original bronze color about 12 years ago; some significant rust again, mostly in the front fenders. Everything worked when it was parked, except the horn, which has an aftermarket button, and the condenser, which was haywired in.

    Would far prefer giving it to someone who could give it a good home, even use it for parts, rather than junk it.

    Thank you!

    Bill

    There's gonna be a happy Opeler, soon! Don't worry on that score, Bill. Only a Opel lover would get it. Sorry to hear about your other troubles.

    I started out as a GT guy but after driving a few mantas it became a no brainer...I still have a GT and love the styling, but mantas GROW on you big time. Drive one and you'll see! Plus, who the hell ever thought of having to jack up a car OFF the engine just to change it?!...Just Kidding...LOL
