This Quebec-built 1971 Manic GT features a fiberglass body, rear-mounted Renault powered 4-cylinder engine, and a four speed transmission, making it a unique vehicle with sporty performance. It is a uniquely Canadian car, built by Montrealer Jacques About and named for the Manicuagan River in Quebec. Our Manic is one of only 135 vehicles built during its short production run.
