It is designed to accommodate the H4 lamp unit with the three large spade connectors. For UK Manta owners that will correspond to the base model Deluxe normally fitted with the 1600cc engine and not the SR/Berlinetta models fitted with the 1900cc engine.

I appreciate it can be quite confusing with all the different model options on the Opel Manta, especially as many cars will have been modified from their original specification over the years. To clarify matters I have prepared an article, which can be found here
Changing over to the H4 from the H1 type will require new connectors of the appropriate type; a 30 minute job with a crimp tool if you know your way around electrics.

So what are the advantages of H4 Halogen units?

Easily upgraded.... the H4 lamp is not only available in the standard 55 Watt output, but also uprated Xenon versions. There are even discharge and long life CREE led upgrade options available. It is the correct original styled replacement part... so good for Concours competition purists.

It is priced at £30, the price includes delivery within the UK. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.
Do ask if you are interested in stainless steel M4 retaining screws to replace the awful mild steel original parts; or backing plates, trim rings, beam adjusters or many other similar items I have in stock.

Obsolete GM spares are not exactly plentiful in the UK, stocks are limited and I will not be replacing them, so don't hang about if this is what you need.
