Europe gets a lot of cool things us Americans aren’t allowed to have. The Focus RS, the Volkswagen Scirocco, just to name two. Add this 1970 Opel GT to the list of cool things we were never able to experience, until now.
A 1970 Opel GT has just sprung onto eBay with lots of goodies for the new owner. The Opel GT was originally offered with a 1.1L four-cylinder engine putting down 67 hp, but a 1.9L good for 102 hp was offered, and is the engine this particular GT is equipped with. The owner stored the car for close to twenty years, and has absolutely babied the body work. The body is all new fiberglass, and has been wet sanded, buffed, and allowed to cure. The motor has been completely rebuilt, and adjustable Koni shocks handle the suspension duties. The odometer reads a seriously low 36,712 miles, which means there is plenty of life left in this foreigner on American roads.
The Opel GT is sure to garner looks from passing 240Z owners as you cruise by them. Style won’t come at a price either, since this oddity comes at a frugal price tag of only $7,500.
