1974 Opel Manta - A Nice Project?

This might be a nice project for someone.

The seller says the engine is shot, but doesn't say what exactly is wrong with it. (He says it's "blown".) The body, however, looks to be in very good shape.

Parts to rebuild the Opel 1.9 liter engine are fairly easy to come by. If the engine is beyond rebuilding, a used engine shouldn't be too tough to find. Besides being used in the Manta, it was also used in the Kadett and GT.

Finding a rust free Manta for reasonable money is getting tough these days. If the body is as nice in person as it looks in the pictures, this could be a nice find.
