I got mine (excellent shape) for $15 with shipping and insurance from this place. I checked their website just now but they don't show a '71 manual in stock - I'd call them anyway.

There are a number of other places as well. I can't remember who I bought my service manual from right now, but if you do an internet search for "opel owners manual" you'll find lots of places to check. I think I may have dealt with this place too:

Here's a good one...
Last year, I bought a rare Opel GT service manual on eBay. The seller was located nearby so I arranged to pick it up. When I got there, I asked the usual "Got anything else Opel" question. He replied " Nothing for the GT, but I have some Kadett and Olympia books" and he showed me an original 1951 Opel Olympia Owners Manual in English. I tried to keep a poker face and quickly bought the manual. After which I told him that I had recently purchased one of the 2 known '51 Olympias in the U.S. What are the odds on something like that happening?
