1968 Opel Opel Commodore A Sport CoupeThis is a 49 year old car and I encourage you to come by in person to check it out to make sure it is what you are looking for. My wife and I are "thinning the herd" and based on seniority of the cool cars we own, this is the first one I am listing, with about ("sigh!") five more to come, the oldest one being a 1967 Commodore A (you might want to buy that one together with this cool Coupe, so you either have two really rare, fast cars, or spares till kingdom come :-). Old age is catching up with me and the cars... I digress...
Selling my 1968 Opel Commodore A Coupe, 2.5l 6 cylinder with dual carbs. Complete car, un-restored, never wrecked, 4 speed manual on the floor. Very rare - less than 1500 were built in the five years they offered it from 1967 to 1971. Has original wheels and a new set of 14" tires. This is the only one on the East Coast, and within the last ten years I have not learned of another in the continental US! Empty weight is 2400lbs, and motor puts out about 140Hp (you can tune it to around 300, if you wish), which makes it a very quick, sporty ride, with a top speed of about 125mph. Needs restoration. All technical parts are readily and reasonably available through (yes!) Autozone and ebay! Comes with a trunk full of Commodore-specific spare parts, inclusive extra carbs and a rare set of hubcaps and beauty rings for regular steel rims. Rear side windows wind down, so you have no B-pillar messing up the beautiful lines of this rare coupe. Starts right up when putting a lil gas into the carbs and jumping it. $5,800 OBO.
Who needs a Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, or the like, of which there are still thousands around, when you can have the only one in the continental US, and one of less than a 100 worldwide?
The only thru-rust that needs to be addressed as far as I can tell is at the lower door hinge on the driver's side, a hole in the door sill on the drivers side right where it opens, and (as a result of that) a rusted out jack point on the driver's side rear.
Quarter panels, fender corners near the head lights, trunk floor etc are all good!
No buyers from outside of the continental US! I don't know how to change that detail at the beginning of the listing under "shipping".
Ask any questions before you buy, I'd like for you and me to have a happy transaction ;-).
Thank you for looking :-)
