History
This was a $100.oo basket case I found in Akron Oh. with a few of my Opel friends. Sitting outside in a back yard for many years. Full of acorns & the carpet was stuffed in all the frame rails from mice. I did a full restoration on this 1969 Gt myself!
This Gt has a flat back panel, split front bumper, wiper arm no deflector, early ashtray
All metal work, paint & body took me 2 years to do.July 2010- july 2012

Interior
This Gt was silver with red interior that was in very bad shap.This original red interior is from another 1969 Opel Gt parts car I paid $ 1000.oo for.
Exterior
Costume Opel Aero Gt body.....Thanks to Gil at OGTS I was able to recreate this car. Gil had hundreds of photos he had taken at the Opel factory museum. I was able to scale off the photos to reconstruct this car like the 2 factory Aero Gt's that were built in 1969. I have made a few little changes to the origional Aero design that I think look much better.
