FULL PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL is accepted (see details below). If you've
always wanted one of these little mini-vettes but cash is tight,I'll work
with you!

Consider this:
$8K to 10K + engine rebuild (see description)
The deep dish true spoke wheels are $1600+ new
After-market A/C kits for an Opel GT are $2500 PLUS labor to install
Buy It Now price doesn't even cover the engine rebuild price LoL!
Moving across the country -> must sell !!!!!!! (Yes, I'm shouting LoL!)

This car has some sweet modifications and is a blast to drive
Steinmetz body kit with Euro rear taillight treatment and ground effects
Custom True Wire rims with insane deep dish offset – very aggressive stance turns heads
Brand new tires (less than 25 miles on them right now)
Custom rear louvers (slats really do keep the sun out)
Custom whale tail – not only cosmetic, this one really does push the rear end down at speed
Custom aftermarket mirrors with lighted turn signal indicators
Custom aftermarket seats and carpet
Custom gauges
Custom interior
Custom fiberglass hood
Custom underneath LED lighting
“Knight Rider” (back and forth LED lighting) through the two hood slits for the car shows!
Custom stereo and amp
>>>>>If you don't appreciate the radical hood and rear deck mods, a stock GT hood is a hundred bucks and you can remove the whale tail <<<<< :)
Professionally rebuilt engine to European 2 liter specs (left the shop 2/28/19)
New Mahl pistons
Custom aftermarket 12 bolt head
New intake and exhaust valves with new hydraulic lifters (no adjustments = easy maintenance)
New cam, rod, and main bearings
All new engine gaskets and freeze plugs
New camshaft
New timing chain/tension kit
Previous owner claims he spent $10,438.34 to take out, rebuild, and reinstall engine and A/C
8K+ worth of engine rebuild invoice receipts attached (see pics) - -> I can’t get previous owner to send all of the receipts to verify his claimed $10K+ figure.I spent another $612.41 with highly respected Opel builder to have some shifter, headlights, and brake work done.
Crane Fireball electronic ignition (no more points to wear out and adjust)
The engine runs strong.

Lots of Opel GT Source parts:
New powder coated rear springs
New master brake cylinder and wheel cylinders
New fuel pump
New oil pump
New clutch
New brake calipers
New shifter spring (transmission shifts as smooth as butter)
Headlights open and close as they should
Speedometer just quit working (hopefully speedo cable just not inserted fully into gauge). I’ll check it out. Tachometer verified accurate when engine is running. Sometimes needle doesn't drop all the way down to 0 when engine is turned off. White dash pod light (shows when headlights are in transition opening or closing) sometimes works and sometimes not. Today, car pulled momentarily to the right when braking. I'll have that checked.Interior rear view mirror needs new glue for permanent windshield attachment. The (already installed) A/C needs attention - - missing the longer A/C belt but the rare and much sought after A/C pulleys themselves are there. Highly respected Opel builder confirms all the A/C parts are present and accounted for, to include:
-Blower motor and housing and high rise rear deck it fits under
-The more attractive center console with blower vents (two covered to force air to front vents and not freeze your torso LoL!)
-Orifice tube
-Thermal expansion valve

Pics show deficiencies - check them out thoroughly
Any questions, please ask via the ebay messaging service and I’ll get back to you asap.

BTW, FULL PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL is accepted so if you want to throw this purchase on credit card(s), please feel free. Of course, the car doesn’t leave my driveway until I verify the money has moved from my Paypal account to my checking account. See Shipping and Payment instructions for the details.
I will gladly work with your car shipper OR if you want to fly out to BWI, I'll pick you up at the airport and in my humble opinion, you could drive it home. HOWEVER, I know it's almost a 50 year old car so no warranties are expressed or implied.I purchased an Opel GT a few years back in northern California and drove it all the back to Maryland, sight unseen so I'm kind of a dare devil when it comes to these things LoL!

I have attempted to describe this cool little car with the best of intentions. Drop by and arrange a test drive if you are in the area.

Happy bidding!
