1973 Opel GT 3 Speed Automatic 63. 58 miles
This is a non-A/C vehicle with manual steering
We purchased this 73 Opel GT in November of 2014 with 62. 49 miles as a weekend driver and to participate in year round local car shows. it is very popular at the cars shows (even at the MOPAR show) and gets lots of attention. we did some minor upgrades to make the car more reliable so that we could enter in "Poker Run" charity events. she is fun to drive. We are down sizing to make room for 2 Bracket Racing projects so the Opel GT must go. We have documents that show the vehicle received body restoration. paint and internal mechanical upgrades between 2007 and 2014 by previous owners. any upgrades or replacements noted after 11/14 were done by us. This vehicle is 43 years old with 98% of it's original wiring. she has been "quirky" a couple of times.
The Opel GT is a true fastback. there is no external access to the trunk area. this is not a hatchback. There is a fold-up locking panel door that conceals the spare tire and jack and trunk area behind the front seats.
