    Thanks for info. The owner is claiming no rust but we'll see, I'm planning to go take a look tomorrow.

    a good way to tell if its 67k miles or 167K MILES IS WEAR ON THE BRAKE OR GAS PEDAL...

    I think JJ's numbers are a good starting point. Is the car running, driving, stopping?
    Looks like a recent re-spray from the pictures. Look closely for rust and body filler.
    Good luck, and let us know what you find.

    All that was mentioned before, plus, the only other thing I would take is a strong magnet, and sweep the car. Jarrell

    Strong magnet with a felted face. No scratching that way

    And, to be honest, a weak magnet is better for detecting bondo.

    Never used a magnet but sounds like it would be good. I just rap it with my knuckcles; you can hear/feel the difference. That'll show up any major bondo, but may not reveal skim coats for small dings. The weak magnet makes sense.

    If it runs, drive and stop, and is close to rust free it must be in the 5000$ area. If it was in eg. in Denmark or Germany that car would be at least 8000$.

    Funny, that the value of our beloved GT's is so much higher in EU.

    A lot - some work to do: 5000 - 10000$

    In fair - good condition between: 11000 - 20000$

    In pristine condition: 20000 and up.

    Is that Opel for sale in the Washington State area? It looks like an Opel listed on Craig's List for $3,100
    The seller didn't have a lot of pictures though. However, that does seem to be a very decent price unless
    there is a lot of rust and/or filler. Definitely worth looking at.
    Good luck

    It's the same car in the CL ad

    I'd be shocked if the OP is NOT the seller

    Agreed, the trim strip looks to be missing. However, look well in that area for major repairs, If there is none and there's not much rot then maybe that craigslist price is getting close.

    Would anyone think offering the guy 2500 for an automatic to be insulting given the craigslist price of 3.1k ? There's an auto in Co Springs for around that which has factory air.


    If it's been smashed in the back though, then ???

    Do me a favor, what are the other indicators that give way to fiberglass? Is it the license plate indentation and bolt holes? No... the indentation between bolt holes for rear bumpers?

    The angle of the dangle.

    There's a definitive rear panel angle missing.
