1973 Opel GT 3 Speed Automatic 63,378 miles - Approx 3500 miles on motor rebuild
This is a non-A/C vehicle with manual steering
We purchased this 73 Opel GT in November of 2014 with 62,149 miles as a weekend driver and toparticipatein 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 tomake room for otherprojects.She only requires a little cosmetic TLC.We have documents that show the vehicle received body restoration, paintand internal mechanical upgradesbetween 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 electrical wiring and components.
The Opel GT is a true fastback, there is no external access to the trunk area, this is not ahatchback. There is a fold-up locking panel door that conceals the spare tire and jack and trunk area behind the front seats.
