I AM OPEN TO ANY REASONABLE OFFER "REALISTIC" FOR SALE: I purchased this car two years ago. This car was originally purchased in Texas and has been there since I purchased it and had it enclosed shipped to Fairfield, CT where it is now located. The car has 51,146 original Texas miles and there is no rust on this car. Over $13,000 has been invested in restoring this car. I am selling it because I had a total hip replacement operation which left me with a paralyzed right foot and I am now unable to drive this car.
Following is a list of restoration items that were done on the car. Receipts are available to document these items.
PRICE REDUCED TO $11,000 FROM $12,500

The body of this car has been restored and is now painted a brilliant sunburst yellow color with a performance clear coat. $6,500 was spent on this work.

A brand new CLUTCH was installed and has less than 50 miles on it.

Complete NEW INTERIOR. Brand new seats and hand made original covers were made in Germany.

It would help you out if you shared photos of your car. You might want to consider looking into Bring a Trailer to sell it.

Your post says a manual for $12,500 dollars, you should edit it so it says GT for sale. I was a little confused by the Title, but then again I am old, so you have to cut me some slack.

I agree. I took some liberties. I don't think the title is editable by posters. If this isn't okay, please let me know and it can be changed to something poster approved.

Price reduced to $11,000 from $12,500

Thanks for the nice comments. Due to my medical problems and incurred medical bills I have reduced the price
from $12,500 to $11,000. Great deal to buy a beautiful Opel GT at what I think is a really fair price.
Thanks, 5satins

You should consider selling it on BaT or try eBay. Selling a GT on the forum can be kinda slow, since most people on the site already have a GT.

Bat question, Thanks autoholic, offers from Germany??????

Thanks for recommendations. I have to admit I don't know what Bat is.
Is it normal to get responses from Germany relating to selling a GT

BringATrailer can pull in buyers from around the world, much like eBay but designed to sell cars.

Getting some attention from Germany would be a good thing. Germany is where the Opel market is the strongest and where you'll find the most interest in GT's. If you're getting some interest from German buyers, stoke that fire. We have several members who have worked with European buyers.

Be careful with any email you receive on the sale of your GT. There are plenty of scams out there and if they scam you, you will get nothing for for GT and they will be the "rightful" owner. My advice is use Ebay or Bring a trailer, they both reach a world wide audience and you would be less likely to be scammed. I hate to see a GT sold, but in your case I certainly understand. Good Luck with the sale, your car is a knockout, so shouldn't have any trouble selling it.

Thanks for advice

I really appreciate your advice. I am well aware of scams. Once I was looking to buy a truck 2,000 miles away. The scam actually produced exactly what a pay pal document would look like. I did notify Pay Pal and they said this is common.
Do you know if I am limited on the number of pics I could put in my ad?
thanks 5satins

Each post has photo number limits. But no limits on a thread.

There are ways to avoid a scam. Use of a money order or PayPal can help avoid someone buying a car for no real money. Gil at OGTS could help you out, he has done sales to European buyers before.
