1973 Opel Other

Up for auction is a ’73 Opel GT. Title is clear and registration is current. The car was purchased from a car lot about four years ago in inoperable condition, nd I've been slowly working on it. I am relocating, nd unable to continue with this project. The car is being sold as-is. It will require extensive restoration (definitely needs a nose clip), r can be used for parts. Several upgraded parts are installed in the vehicle. See below and photos for details.

Exterior: As can be seen in the photos, t is far from perfect, articularly the front. Headlights do not turn over, ut buckets and covers are in good shape. There are several small dings and scrapes. The lower left corner of the rear windshield is rusted through and will need reconstruction (I have a spare body panel from that part of the car, s well as others). Tires need replacing. Rims on car are included.

Engine: 1.9L SOHC, ater, ower compression pistons. The car does run/drive, ut I believe the #2 piston ring will need replacing. Original, -speed transmission shifts smoothly through the gears.

Interior: All gauges work, ith the exception of the speedometer. The speedo cable or gear will need replacing; stopped working in July. The original clock works! It needs adjustment to keep accurate time, owever. Interior paneling is Opel GT Source reproduction, eplaced roughly four years ago, ith minor wear. Carpet was replaced about the same time. Shifter boot was replaced this year. Seats will need new covers and foam.

Installed Upgrades: Koni Red shocks all around, ntermediate sport spring from Opel GT Source in the front, igger brake booster from OGTS, ront and rear sway bars installed. New, -point retractable seat belts.

Extra parts:

  • Two doors (left and right), ith glass and window mechanisms.(pictured)
