I bought this car brand new in 1971. Didn't know how I could afford it, but made it through OK. Drove it for 15 years, then parked it in the driveway (Big Mistake). Sat there for another 15 years, then my niece the cop came by and said I had to move it in the back yard or it would be towed. (Rotten kid). Thought that would be a great time to start to get her back on the road
1971 Opel GT (Chrome Yellow)
2.4 liter with Getrag 5 speed transmission. Twin 38 Weber carb. Rewired with a modern 16 circuit blade fuse box. Now she has the OGTS headers with the ceramic finish on it. Plenty of gas pedal left after I chicken out.
Restored dash by Just Dashes, new door panels, kick panels, steering wheel, carpets, headliner, three point seat belts, 10 gallons of noise deadener. I got some original Opel GT seats from one of our members. The Ex threw the original seats in the garbage. The seats have been recovered and they look great. Now I can actually drive the GT without bumping my head on the headliner.
Fiberglass hood, Revo rims and Yokohama tires, spoiler with custom third brake light. new paint job, Polyurethane in the original color. The license plate is OPEL GT, I was lucky, went into the Nevada DMV and the lady there told me it was available and had not been used for 10 years. Thank you!!!!
SD Card mp3 player and AM FM radio. The SD card has about 2000 songs on it, put it on random and you will never hear the same song twice. It has a Bluetooth talking hands free phone calls. The most entertainment is driving it.
Stock with the exception of front and rear sway bars, All bushings replaced with poly bushings. It handles nice and tight.
Wheel and Tire
TSW Revo six spoke chrome mags. Yokohama Parada Asymetric tires 205/45R 16. It also has front dis brakes that are drilled to keep them somewhat cool.
