Manta was a custom car company based out of Southern California (run by brothers Brad and Tim LoVette) in the 1970s/1980s that built speedy looking fiberglass superkits using donor parts from Vettes and Beetles. The Montage was one of their later offerings and used a Volkswagen Type 1 donor engine/transmission to underpin a fancy looking fiberglass shell.

From the seller:
1984 Manta Montage M6GT
cylinders: 4 cylinders
paint color: black
title status: clean
This is a Manta montage. it has a ball joint front end and independent rear end VW beetle pan. 1600cc dual port motor. Runs and drives. I have bled the brakes, installed a new Empi carb, added adjustable spring plates and rear urethane bushings and chrome spring plate covers, and KYB shocks. new clutch adjuster wing nut. New steering box and rubber coupler, battery, and pos battery cable. New fan. New electronic ignition distributor. The paint is shiny black metallic in descent shape but not perfect. I just noticed 2 hairline cracks in the rear window so I added a pic. I recommend you come see the vehicle. It has AC but isn’t currently working. Has a stereo that works well. LED headlights. The turn signals don’t work along with the gas gauge and a few other gauges. I have had it 3 years and rarely use it much. Pretty rare car 1 of 220 or so especially in black. Currently registered and on the road. I use Hagerty classic car insurance for low rates and great coverage. Clean title in hand. Please only bid if you have the money. I have an enclosed trailer if you want it delivered for an additional fee.
