    I think it could be a later year speedo too, don't know. W-1062

    I just want to understand that flat panel... When was the last known chassis #s with that? This one is a 94208xxxx

    Keep in mind that the 1970 model year began in 1969. Not strange at all to have a flat panel '70

    Ahhh, Ok, well then that solves what I thought was a mystery.... Thanks!

    The reason a 1.1L is in there will probably never be discovered.

    It sounds like the one you describe, like so many of our GT's, has been mongrelized over the years. The chassis may have a bit of a different story. I suggest you look up an old thread on here about Body Unit Numbers and their relationship to VIN numbers During Production. BUN,s are stamped on a gusset to the Radiator Support on the drivers side. These were stamped in sequence by the body builder. The hitch is some of the bodies needed corrective work and were held out of the production line until fixed. For instance a local guy around here has 10 complete GT,s in a barn. A couple of them are early 69,s with 1.1L. One of those has a flat back panel and a BUN of U790BB which would indicate one of the first 1000 bodies assembled and should have been finished in late 68. The VIN actually indicates a finish date of around March or April of 69.
    Another odd aspect of this 69 is it was fitted for AC. Even Gil at OGTS looked at it and was stumped. Nobody seems to have heard of a 1.1L GT with AC.

    I have seen a 1.1L Kadett with dealer installed ARA AC with clearly factory designed brackets So there is precedence for an AC 1.1L GT. I can’t imagine more than a handful of people would have done it though.
    Probably wasn’t an official option unless the dealer just knew how to make the Kadett kit work on the Gt.
