    It would help if the owner would share how much he wants for it.

    If I'm not mistaken, this picture is one that has been used repeatedly by scammers... A tip off should be the way he spelled "Opal". And has an "L" engine? Better use caution here....

    $22K seems a bit rich for that car. Maybe, I'll ask $30K for mine...

    I agree with Roy. Be careful

    In a climate controlled garage since 1974, but has Indiana temporary plate from 2011 on the back? Fascinating, Captain......
    And I seem to remember that by the 1972 model year the 1.9 wasn't putting out that kind of HP anymore.

    Front plate is IL and rear temporary tag is IN. Looks like rear tag expired 2011 and not 2019.

    Buyer beware indeed. Join car enthusiast"site to sell your "Opal"; be coy and spotty on the details of what you are trying to sell.

    Target any individual interest by having them contact you instead of providing detailed photos here. All while not addressing specific questions by members here; going on close to 24 hours now. Heck, if I'm trying to sell my over 20 grand car, the first hint of interest and I'm right there, at your service!

    Had there been, say, a 20 post count requirement before you are allowed to sell your Opel or Opel parts; maybe some folks would be more inclined to go elsewhere with their "wares" for sale.

    Required pictures of said car or parts would help weed out others, too. For the better. Take that for what it's worth.

    The screen name of the OP, which I didn't notice before, is a red flag too. If you owned an Opel GT, you'd know how to spell Opel correctly. Pretty stupid idea to join a car forum to try and scam people out of money, since forums log IP address which could be used to track you down.

    Most people use a VPN if they don’t want to be tracked . When I’m on my computer I’m often from a different state or country according to my IP.

    I hope it's still available. I'm ready to forward the $20,000 check I will receive from the king of Nigeria next week. Please ship ASAP!

    Thanks

    $30K would be the price for the GT,when bring it to Europ. Shipment, Tax , fees for paperwork and TueV here must add to the $22K

    Still the same pics from the Craigslist ad, and if the person was serious a few things should have happened...

    1. Gotten offended that anyone would have claimed the person behind this car was a scammer, that's not the situation, I have a good reputation so please don't drag it through the mud over bad English, etc. You wouldn't leave this unanswered.

    2. One forum member appears to be sincerely interested if this is legit. I'd imagine a reply to that specifically would have been made.

    I'm still doubting this is a legit car for sale. On the off chance that it is legit, you won't sell a level 2 GT in America to someone living here for $22k. Heck, you won't even sell a concours level 1 GT for that in America. The only place to fetch that kind of cash is Germany and the surrounding countries where the GT has a strong fan base. Any of the really good GT's sold in like the last decade, all went to Europe. Suselbeek seems to like snatching up good ones.

    At least 25% of members here don't know how to spell Kadett. Or was it Kadette? Cadet? Cadettilac?
