Not long before Manta Cars closed their doors, they finished development on a very accurate '53 Corvette replica. From the research done by Roger Reed, it appears Manta Cars completed only one car before going out of business. This was their show car that appeared in magazines and in their brochures. While several more kits have been pulled from the molds by other companies, this car is the only one done by Manta Cars.
