1970 OPEL GT $12,000 West Va

I have a 1970 Opel GT for sale. I bought in January of this year from the estate of the deceased owner.
I am asking $12,000, but I am open to reasonable offers. Car has clear title, and is being kept inside."
It is drivable, licensed and insured."

It was in fair condition, but not running at the time of purchase, but was advised it did run recently."
I bought the car and trailered it home. A new battery and tuneup and it ran.

Body is in good shape and rust-free. It drives and handles well. I will try and list all new parts, and work"
done on it since. Most parts sourced from OGTS and Suselbeek, and local sources."

Engine: Weber carb; Petronix electronic ignition; complete tune-up; fuel pump; belts and hoses.
Exhaust resonator and intermediate pipe. All other exhaust in good shape. Vacuum hoses and
check valve for brake booster. Heater control valves and hoses. Complete clutch assembly.
and flywheel resurfaced to factory spec.; New battery.
Body/Chassis: Front brakes and rotors; minor body work and new paint; new rear bumpers and L/P lights
Halogen headlights; New body badging; New tires--185R/70-13
Interior: Carpeting, rear deck and spare covers, Stereo and speakers. All gauges but clock work."
New fuel sending unit and tank vent hoses. 85,600 miles showing as of 11/01/21"
There is more, but those are the major things done."

Issues: Dash pad severely cracked, but have cover pad; No ignition key switch--use small screwdriver to start."
Heater motor doesn't work, but switch tests good."

I'm selling due to physical/mobility issues.

Please PM me on this forum, or email me @ dlthrasher1 (at) att. net if you are interested and have questions."
I will try to answer questions in this thread as I check it.

Thanks for the kind words. I'll post some more pics soon. The rocker panels and jacking points are solid. The
battery tray is unrusted and there is no corrosion beneath it on the belly pan.

The color is a medium gray metallic I chose from a chip sample book. Similar to a Ford paint from the 2000's.
The car was a similar color when I got it, and I matched it as well as I could.

UMM not trying to be snarky here But can you explain a little better the 2 by 4 screwed to the bottom?
And since I'm asking why was the brake rod rail cut and removed?
Both those items are related. The 2x4 was used as mounting point for a retainer clamp for the A/C hoses running to the evaporator. I just forgot to remove it when I removed the A/ C hoses. This care had a dealer-installed A/C system. And I believe the rail was cut and removed for clearance for the compressor. The compressor was missing when I got the car, as well as some other non-available parts. So I just removed the rest of the system and put it aside. I have all the removed parts.

The rear panel lights are not in correctly. Amber on the outside.

With the condenser in place in front of the radiator, I am inclined to believe, but am probably wrong, that they used a smaller battery to fit down in there.
Has anyone seen evidence of a rotated battery/tray that keeps the battery away from the condensor?
I would imagine you are correct in this. I replaced the battery in this car with the condenser installed. The "small" battery was a very tight fit coming out and going in. No way a "standard" battery would work.

Pardon my unattentively late night( had a couple really cold ones) post. Was crunching numbers everywhere yesterday Including my new drain field dilemma.
And fell short a 0 and in this case makes a world of difference
My apologies
Well, glad to see you weren't being a troll... Posting While Drunk is dangerous, but not criminal. :oops:
And, yes, $12K is the asking price and I am open to reasonable offers.
