History
Purchased from Texas as a project car and shipped to Canada in August 2017. Lots of upgrades already done but still lots of work to do before it can be driven. Originally red but has mostly black primer on now. I haven't decided on what color to paint it yet.
1969 Opel GT (Black primer)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Engine bored to 2.0L and big valves and OR-66H camshaft.Weber 38DGS carb, ceramic headers and Pertronix ignition. Yet to be fired up. Plan to modify the intake per RallyBob's specs. Fuel injection might replace the carb in the future.
Interior
Dyed gray but will be replacing with OE black interior and more modern seats.
Exterior
Headlights modified by PO and were to have plexi covers. Original buckets will be installed before painting. Split bumper, flat panel.
Audio
Came with a stereo, but the engine sound is more entertaining.
Suspension
Poly bushings all around, Sport springs F&R, OGTSource swaybars and KYB shocks. Will change to Koni yellows when finances allow. Big brakes are in the works.
Wheel and Tire
Avid BBS RS copies in 16x8 et15 with 205/45 16 tires. Looking at 15x8 with 225/45-15 tires for autocross/track use.
