Description

If you would like to own an affordable sports car, that gets an INSANE amount of attention, day OR night, please look at this VERY cool vehicle I wish to part with. Way back in the Winter of 1980, I purchased this 1970 Opel GT. My goal was to take the looks of this vehicle, "to the max". All new bodywork is fiberglass. The paint is acrylic enamel with hardener, plus an additive called "Color Blender". The finished product looks nothing like an orange peel, rough factory finish. It was wet sanded and buffed, after the proper cure period. It looks like glass. The motor was completely rebuilt by C & R Cars, an Opel dealer in Connecticut. The Block was painted green. Engine has new pistons, a new mild cam, new larger intake and exhaust valves, a new Webber carb, a new four into one header, Ansa exhaust, new water pump, and a new ignition coil and wires. It has always ran flawless. Car pulls strongest between 80-90mph. Also, since everything was apart, the clutch and pressure plate were replaced.Wheels are Enkei, with Fulda Y2000 tires. Adjustable rate Koni shocks handle the suspension duties. Front and rear heavy duty sway bars keep the car nice and flat, for superb handling. The heavy starting battery was moved from the radiator area, to behind the passenger seat, for improved weight distribution.The car has been garaged for almost twenty years in a controlled environment, and NOT used. I changed the oil with a synthetic blend, and added fresh gas, with a small amount of Lucas "Upper Cylinder Lubricant". I removed the spark plugs and cranked the engine until the low oil pressure light went out. I repeated this for a second time. I put the plugs back in and started the engine. The wheel alignment appears to be perfect for all four wheels, as the tires show no wear at all for 5-7k miles.Five to seven thousand miles have been placed on this vehicle since rebuild. Odometer reads 36,712Rack and pinion is perfect. The steering is 100% tight.The interior has NO musty or mouse smells, since it has been in a controlled environment. In fact, there is a fabric/upolstery smell inside. Rubber door seals were replaced during the rebuild phase, and the drivers door still to this day takes more force than normal to compress the rubber.Not used in Winter, as road salt destroys vehicles. Body has no rust.Clear title in hand. . .Car has the following known issues: Both front brake calipers are frozen. (autoatlanta.com has calipers for $36.52 ea.)Water pump is frozen.Headliner and door fabric need to be redone.Paint has small chips, and small flaws here and there.Only one Recaro drivers seat comes with vehicle. Passenger seat is in my Winter salt car.Does not come with a starting battery.Speedometer cable, or right angle drive is broken.Rear end has since day one made a slight humming sound. Never changed in pitch or loudness. Noticeable when on the highway, not around town.Drivers window cranks up slightly crooked.Starter solenoid needs replacing, as sometimes it clicks.Interior has plenty of head and leg room. Width is the issue. My Honda measures 51" at the shoulder. Opel is 47". This 2" per side difference is noticeable.Front spoiler is low to the ground. (6") Need to be careful around town.Tires look brand new, but are 20 years old. I'd guess they are fine for around town driving, but are they safe for high speed driving?Stick shift feels loose compared to my Honda.I've spent around 10k for everything here. This does not count the zillion hours I spent doing the body mods, plus the paint which I completely did myself. Looking for a reasonable offer, so this fab project can have a new home.Em if you have any questions, or call4136294081 and leave your phone # if em is not going to work for you. Thanks
