Opel - GT - NO RESERVE - 1973

A wonderful timeless classic - a well maintained Opel GT/J from 1973. With its sleek and aerodynamic design, the Opel GT turns heads wherever it goes. The GT/J was the much rarer starter model for the Opel GT and only offered in select markets, standing out via its matte black details, offering virtually the same creature comforts as the more standard A/L model. The Opel GT is well renowned for its unique pop-up headlights and gorgeous body style - the "baby vette" is among the most beautiful cars ever produced and is getting increasingly more rare! Mechanically and body-wise the car is in a great condition and has continuously undergone work to maintain this. The car has been repainted by the previous owner, yet it does show some signs of ageing and rock chips in the usual locations. The car is on Historical plates and has been graded as a "2" via Classic Data. The 90 hp from the 1,9l engine do not sound impressive, but are completely sufficient due to the lightweight body and nimbleness of the chassis, which is being driven solely through the rear wheels. The car offers endless fun on country roads with its low-end torque and immediate responsive, but also offers an impressive top speed of 180 km/h (although the tachometer optimistically goes to 240). This model has had extensive work done and no costs have been spared to make it more usable in today's world. Within just the past two years, this includes: - Overhauling and replacing the whole cable tree from bumper to bumper - Replacing the fuel ventilation and motor ventilation systems - A completely new remanufactured interior - A new Solex carburetor - Undercoating and rust-proofing of the whole car - A new radio (currently without speakers) - Change to a button-operated windshield sprinkler - New Spark plugs - A new battery As is always the case with a classic car, there are some things that may need to be handled sometime in the future. The driver side window runners will need to be replaced so the window goes up more smoothly (spare parts included in sale), the cabin ventilation may need some attention in the next 10 or so years, and there are some small paint chips that might need touch-up (color code is known). The car is still being driven, so the kilometer reading is subject to change - there is also no way to know if the car has driven 80.000, 180.000 or even 280.000 kilometers, as unfortunately the previous documents were lost. Don't miss your chance to own one of the most beautiful cars ever produced! The car can be viewed and test driven in Nuremberg, Germany. International transport can be organised.
