is that for reallllllllll? i cant believe it unless i see some papers and no they are authentic.
Yep, I think it is for real. It is also listed on our own ad board, at http://opelgt.com/ppc/showproduct.php?product=210&sort=1&cat=9&page=1 As I recall, the car is in New York, and was bought by its present owner (Ralf) a couple or three years ago. It was posted on the classicopels board at the time. If I recall correctly, it was actually re-painted a year or two after it was built, due to an accident, but aside from that, is genuinely a 16,000 mile (virtually) NOS GT. It will have a $15,000 reserve or thereabouts on eBay, as that is what he is asking for it here.

Are you sure that's the same car Keith? I thought Ralph's 'old' GT was sold to someone in North Carolina and the new owner was on this forum in fact? I know that car had only 1013 miles on it when I saw it. This car may be a different one.

Hmm, You might be right, Bob. I just recalled the name "Ralf" (or Ralph), and the car was red, in incredible shape, and was (at some time) in New York. Anyone else know the story. Ralf, are you watching this?

I suppose anything is possible - but that works out to only 500 miles per year (appr.). Factoring in any variations then it would be some years below 500. Just a little curious.

There is a Gt here in Carolina, one of our Carolina Club members, that came from New York with now around 1500 to 1700 miles on it.There's a picture of it in Carolina Opels at the Fall 2003 Charlotte Auto Fair. The car is imaculate. Simply beautiful. Jarrell

Same buyer is negotiating right now to try to buy a few of the finest GT's in the country.
He just bought one today.

The 1,000 mile red GT he sold to a Mark M. in North Carolina. That one is the GT Rallybob saw and took pictures of.

We spoke yesterday and he seems to be just interested in GT's. His phone no is listed in post 8. Give him a ring. (use 917#)

I purchased the RED 1973 Gt from Ralph back in 2002 or so. I don't drive it much and it has about 2,050 miles on it now. the mileage was 1,139 when i picked it up. The only thing that i have done to it is, added HRE wheels and Yokohama tires. I do have the original wheels and tires as well. It is a beauty and i keep it clean. Mark
