I just bought a 69 GT, green/ tan color, that was made in 9-68. It has extensive rust along the rocker panels and floors, so bad the rear control arm on the drivers side is about to fall off, plus up on the fender tops. The frame rails seem solid though over the back and down the middle. It has the rectanular indicater lights on the gauge panel, a different style headlight lever, a different style ashtray, no console along the e-brake, seat belts mount into the side panel under the rear side windows, and a flat panel in the rear by the l/p bracket. The production date was not on the driver door, I got it from the back of the speedo which had been removed and replaced by the PO. I wanted it for the engine and other parts and was planning on junking the body. Is this early GT of any significance to Opel GT enthusiasts? I don't want to destroy a piece of Opel history. With this production date, is it a 68 registered as a 69, or just an early 69 of no real importance. Please advise me.
