Glad to see theres enthuisiests for these amazing little machines!! so heres my story:
My girlfriends friends mother has a 75 gt sitting in her carport.. for the last 11 years.. the accelorator cable broke, they mended it, and it would not pass emmisions back in 1994.. by means of a high idle.. so she has sat there ever since.. I have rarely seen these, but they always delight me when I do.. I am a mechanic, and know I can figure this out.
so moms tells me i can have it for 300 bucks after fixing her daughters 65 stanger, a coolant hose and starter bendix later, the gt is all mine. one catch, her husband baught it for her as a college grad gift back in 82, so he is all up tight about it, being he never met me before, not hearing a word about it, so on.. so I get him all straight and can now start my beutifull opel adventure..
specs on the car, (as far as I have seen at least, for clutter around it in their carport)
they say its a 75
it says "opel fuel injected" as the rear emblem
red car, virtually no rust
looks like a 2-litre FI opel engine, but they insist its a "racing engine"
custom job on the interior, not TOO bad of one.
SO MY Q'S TO ALL:
Should I begin my quest(i will regardless)
was there a stock gt that was FI???
would this dizzy have points?? high comp "racing motor" maybe??
parts?? probably non-existant right??
chance of getting a 16v head??
i am excited beyond words people!!
again, just thaught i would get some opel love from you all to get me stoked about this... will probably trailer her up on sat...
to another sunny afternoon gone night!
