Carlisle is quickly coming up, so time to start the parts Thread. We have the same spots reserved IA22-25, and I also reserved IA26-27 so that is 6 spots for Opel Parts together. I will be bringing a smaller trailer, but I will have a lot more stuff. A lot of NOS parts for Kadetts and 1900/Manta. I won’t need to bring tables and a car, so I can load more stuff. I am working on repacking right now like I did last year for those that came by. If you have stuff you would like to bring and sell, we have plenty of room.

This thread can be used for requests too. Please keep pricing of stuff to Private Messages, that way nobody is undercutting anyone.

I have a request! I want a ski rack style luggage rack for my GT. These are the type that connect to the rear bumpers and the rear window vents.

Should have been there last year when the only one I’ve ever seen in person sold at the auction. I forget who bought it

I'm also looking for the little rubber cap that some GTs have on the distributor. Here's a picture: Land vehicle Vehicle Car Engine Auto part

The "little rubber cup" on top of the dizzy was original equipment. I thought it to be a PINA because I was always having to fool with the points. I am sure I still have it in some box marked "OLD OPEL PARTS." However, I have kept just about every original part that came with her in 1972.:)

Is anyone interested in a set of four BFG Radial TA 205/60-13s mounted on custom wheels? I bought these way back 25 years ago but have since moved up to 15" wheels. Tires still have some life on them. Here are pictures of the wheels and what they look like on a GT.

I might be interested in the flares.

I need the bottom cushion part of a Manta/Ascona back seat. I only have the fold down top part on the '75 Wagon I bought. I don't know if a normal sedan Manta/Ascona back seat is designed the same.

Wagon bottom seats are different.

Hmmmmm....:sigh:

I suppose I could make my own back seat bottom out of leftover sculpting foam, plywood, and upholstery. The car has the sheet metal base.

My days of doing anything in the back seat are long gone, so it won't get much use.

:lmao:


Gene, can you post a pic of the flares?

Anybody else got any Manta/Ascona dress up stuff?


:thinking:

I removed the top and bottom cushions in my wagon and moved the battery back there. I added a support to keep the fold down section level. That gives you a nice flip up storage area. BTW, You also have a storage compartment in the rear of the wagon.

I did find a battery cable in the back seat area of the car. I presume a PO did just what you did.

Hmmm....It never occurred to me to NOT have a fully complete rear seat that's up all the time in the Wagon.

I'm not a pick up truck guy, but I guess you could say that a wagon with the back seat down is like a pick up truck with a cab. Hmmmmm......it would make it more useful if the back seat was down all the time.

Food for thought. Thanks!

:yup:
