History
The car has been in my family since it was new. It was originally red. The first restoration was to get it back to original. The car was in a second accident that bent up the front of the nose. I repaired that and decided to build a street legal track car. I purchased the large majority of the products from Opel GT Source. I have done all of the work on this car including mechanical, body (including welding), suspension, etc. I had the color sprayed by Maaco in Houston off Clay road. They do a lot of show cars and they did not disappoint!!! I'm in the process of building a new dashboard and then will be moving on to fabricating and installing the roll bar and painting of the interior.
