History
Bought from Kegan Norwood in Washington state.....had some work to be done, but a good buy from an Opel-thusiast......I hope things work out for him to get another, but had promised I would only sell her back to him and that she would be badass by time I'm done........
1972 Opel GT (FireGlo (origionally))

Modifications

Drivetrain
see above In-Car entertainment system.......as well as, '69 head with hot cam and big valves.......there is and will be more.........
Interior
......removed rear deck / spare area and replaced with aviation composites and deck plating to remove significant weight from car.......removed deck trim pannel (w/ speaker) at rear glass, cut away all but the 90 degree and side curved to follow back glass, fastened in new forward section of composite weave deck and re-attached new deck-on-o-diet (just shy of 6 lbs lighter than factory).......stereo enclosure is mounted on floor plate behind seats (again replaced with lighter decking) to keep factory dash, but now look to have need for more tunnel.....
Exterior
....installation of Steinmetz race flare kit......same as Conrero GT's......aftermarket rims.....four red tail lights with brake/running light moved to outside position to look wider at night......four-tip exhaust......
Audio
weber carbs will help on any Opel in-side & out........from there I added a 30 year old Itialian exhaust kit (from some shop's near thirty year display being ebayed) header complete to the four tips maintaining the overall tone of my favorite in-car entertainment system......oh, and there is a mini amp from clearwater with speakers as a graft/mod ripped from my old miata to allow some light background noise in the main cabin area.......
Suspension
lowest front spring offered over the years for GT's.....lowered rear.......shocks........
Wheel and Tire
aftermarket........
