Hello everyone out there in opel world. I was looking for a cheap winter project after turning away from building a Baja from a bug. I started reading about opel’s.I decided an opel was just what I wanted. Now with out spending a lot of $$$$ to get started it was difficult. After looking for 2 months I found a 1972 4 speed opel (picture included). Well this opel has been mistreated for some time. It appears the rust is only skin deep (I hope) and the dents are from being toss around. To my surprise it runs (ok) clutch feels good and everything works except for the window wipers and the gages that someone demolished remove the radio. My plans are to total gut the car and switch from white interior to black and go back to the original yellow color with a few added flares and rims .Anyway the picture shows her home from the 4 hour journey to start a new life. I look forward to sharing and receiving info from the opel community.
