The first generation Opel GT (1968-1973) debuted as a styling exercise in 1965 at the Paris and Frankfurt motor shows. The production vehicle used mechanical components from the contemporary Opel Kadett a 2 door hard top bodywork by French contractor Brissonneau & Lotz. The styling of the GT was often cited as similar to the 1968 Chevrolet Corvette which went on sale in September 1967. Opel marketed a second generation GT (2007-2009) as a rebadged variant of the Saturn Sky/Pontiac Solstice 2 seater convertible, manufactured in Wilmington, DE, USA.
The Opel GT uses a steel unibody and conventional front engined, rear-wheel drive layout. The engine is mounted far back in the chassis to improve weight distribution. Front suspension consists of upper A-arms and a lower transverse leaf spring. A live axle and coil springs are used in the rear. The power-assisted braking system uses discs in the front, drums in the rear. One unusual feature of the Opel GT is the operation of the pop-up headlights. They are manually operated, by way of a large lever along the center console next to the shifter. Opel GT's were sold new by Buick dealers in the US from 1969-1973.

The Opel GT is truly a One of a Kind built from a passion for the Opel GT. It was owned by one family for most of its life and has been with a second owner for the past two years. The body was completely refinished to look more aggressive using larger wheel flares, body side aero moldings and larger rear spoiler, not to mention the larger hood dome. The work was professionally done by a local Corvette shop in fiberglass and is absolutely stunning. The bodywork is excellent with no checking, blisters or major blemishes. A start button has been added to the lower dash as has the horn. The car has been recently serviced and is in ready to drive. We have history paper work back to 1995 and the original owners hand book on this very unique Opel GT.
The numerous upgrades to this very special Opel include:
Original 1.9 liter motor rebuilt to 2.0 liter with only less than 6k miles
5 speed Getrag transmission conversion
Weber carb conversion
Recaro seats with Opel logos
3 Piece HRE 15 inch alloy wheels
Built in radar detector
Alpine stereo
Removable rear window shades
Sunroof
PIA fog lamps
