I’ve seen pictures of that car 30 years ago or so. It has an Opel 6-cylinder swap.

IIRC the owner is also semi-famous in the GT community. I think her name is Betty? Or something like that.

This is another old photo of Betty and her "long hood" Opel GT. I have seen this photo a number of times, but I don't know if the silver paint was before or after the red.

And a link to a bit of the story:

I’m pretty sure at some point the car was painted black. That’s what I remember from the 1990’s anyway.

Here's a pic of another GT with the Opel 6cyl mod. The radiator wall crossmember appears to have been remade, but still in place, whereas the car above has it removed entirely. Both cars appear to have the longer hood and rear hinging. This car has the huge hood scoop to clear the huge oem Opel FI cylinder, but they appear to have scrapped the FI and installed triple side drafts instead, negating the need for the hood scoop:

I like the enlarged valve cover.
