Mid range is going up on ebay the last few months as a few decent west coast restoration projects sold for north of $4500.
Also the high end is going up due to a few European sales, and a few extremely low mileage GTs selling as well.
Rust is starting to take away a lot of cars. Also the purge of old junkyards in 2006-2008 took a lot of borderline parts cars out of the system.
I think though what we are seeing is we are getting to parity with comparable cars of the era. Thanks to Opel GT Source, and Opels Unlimited, continuing to support the community and making parts not a factor that they once were.
As an FYI, I have attached Hagarty Canada's valuation graph of Opel GT's since 2006. Keep in mind that this is in $CAD, not $USD, so the exchange rate at the time must be factored in (currently approximately 1.25 $CAD per $USD). During that time, Opel GT values have doubled.
Hi guys I am buying this 1969 opel gt. I think the original color is silver but I am not sure. It has a red interior and an automatic transmission. Does anyone know about how many of them were made? Even an estimate works. I am hopeing to get this gt in a week, I will post pics and videos of it...

In a recent flyer from OGTS Gil made mention of a early 69 GT...
I’m sure most of you have seen the original ‘experimental’ GT::yup: with his super flat nose and square headlights, here are some detail photo’s, notice the difference in front and back suspension. And what about the interior:)
First time owner of a GT though my dad had one when i was a kid.
Was looking at all the awesome guages and switches when i noticed this pedal. Though it was hi/lo headlights but i think my turn signal pulls for that, not sure.
Whats the mysterious pedal which im sure you all know what it is.
