Yes, Keith ..I think the GT's that came out of Bochum, Germany plant in early 68 and 69 had ""Dealer Plate"" on engine bulkhead ...Firewall nxt to Vin. TagMike, were those additional plates (USA only I assume) just 1969, or did some or all 1970 GT's come with them?
AFAIK, ALL GT bodies were built in France, near Paris, by French contractor Brissonneau & Lotz, although they subcontracted the "body in white" (metal stamping, assembly of the basic body structure) to another French contractor, "...Chausson, another French company that did the actual stampings. Final assembly of the bodies, including wiring, trim and paint, took place at Montataire before the cars were shipped back to Germany for driveline installation" which was done at the Opel Bochum plant, along side the Kadett. (that is from https://www.hemmings.com/blog/article/brissonneau-and-lotz/).The BB means that the GT was Totally made in Germany Body/engine/assembled/ the other GT's were not ....body made in France and then put on trains and sent to Germany for assembly ... As so what am have been told.
I believe it's a 69. Yeah, retirement is sweet and the Opel definitely is keeping me busy. The 31 is cool but I ran out of things to do to it. 90 years old with 500 hp. The GT will be slower but it will look cool going slow.Bob is your GT a 1970? Double congratulations on being retired and having an Opel GT to work on in retirement :yup:
That is one sweet 1931 Chevrolet :haha: awesome project
I'm curious. I assume you put a V8 in your Opel? If so, Bravo! I used to drag race and my first thought was to go for the power but it's a ton of work to do it right.Hello Bob
Refer to the VIN on the ID tag in post #1, i estimate a production date for this GT at the end of jan 69. So it leaves the factory original with that „famous“ split front bumper which obviosly some PO in the past had been replaced with the regular one pice/solid pumper.
I am curious about the body numbers from this GT. Because this GT come off the regular B&L-line, it also has a body number at the right hand side. I´ll bet the body was produced in 68. Would you please post pics from both numbers.
"If you make it through an entire day and learned nothing you weren't paying attention" >> For sure. Love the quote. I may add, If you made it through the day and didn't learn anything, you wasted a day.Interesting mine to is that way, no GM badge though
Pretty awesome you all know little things like this
do these numbers match to or reference to other numbers on the car?
Thank you verry much for posting the body number.I'm curious. I assume you put a V8 in your Opel? If so, Bravo! I used to drag race and my first thought was to go for the power but it's a ton of work to do it right.
i found a number stamped on the radiator support. Is this what you requested?
