Special Announcement Saving Orange Opel Body Part Two Wednesday March 25, 2020

Here we are to pick up the Opel GT Shell Story.

So here we have almost nothing. Stripped and parted out and ready for scrap nowadays. But right here and right now just like that with one phnne call here comes Opels Unlimited. This is what we are famous for.

So here we have a car that is just a body shell now. Traded hands a bunch of times, title long gone. Front bumper, nosr panel, completely gross, no drive train, original blue plates, California Car. No one would buy this car typically because it could not be rolled around or transported anywhere easily.This is why we chose to part this car out. We have plenty of other cars available with far less labor to have them ready for transport.

Nowadays this happens every once and a while and we are looking always for the next one of these cars.

So now we get it home. We clean out the interior. Throw everything away. Sweep it up, vacuum it up. Everyone is so excited we actually do it on the same day. Todd and Tammy the same old thing. Doors off, windows out. Zack is of great help to clean out interior and clean up everything. It is now ready for pictures of all the hard parts we can save.

Let us see that beauftiful floor! Those great rockers! Like a time capusule. Sunny Soutern California Car. An amazing best possible scenario for zero rust on your jacking points, trailling arms, complete floors with rockers intact. If you live anywhere else in the country you know how impossible it is to get parts in this condition.

This is what Opels Unlimited has been famous for.

So at this point Opels Unlimited is out about $800 for all the work so far. At first glance this would just look like a bunch of trouble and junk like Todd's Mother would say back in the day. The last 20 years or so she finally understands that this is necessary. HA HA and so here we go again.

What we gained from this project in the end is quite a spectacular floor with rockers. A real top of the line scrubbed and cleaned and washed, yes it is really great top and bottom. This is not something that can just be recreated easily or will show up again anytime soon.

It is not just the part itself but the guy who did the labor. It was Todd himself who did the rear floor yesterday and it came out perfectly. Seriously perfectly straight and clean with a Milwaukee SawZall. We are speculating it has been ssome five years plus that Opels Unlimited has taken apart a car for it's sheet metal. The cars are so valuable nowadys thaq they are not just simply thrown away.

These opportunities do not come very often. We do have complete cars for sale starting a $1,000 to $1,500 to $2,000. Maybe you can't go to every store nowadsys but you can certainly shop and build and fix your Opel car. A great thing to do these days.

For the first time Opels Unlilmited is actually painting cars and fixing up cars to sell on a more high end basis. We just finished a pretty Resale Red 4 speed black interior for $6,500.

The big thing on this car is the floor and rockers. Todd is very proud of his complete rear cut. No torches, no slag, clean Milwaukee SawZall. Multiple pictures available. The front clip is open to suggestion. It is possible to have mainframe engine mounting brackets, even front and rear jacking points completely intact. Palett shipping available.

Custom cut complete floor with rockers will sell at $400 a side. This is a one shot deal. Call 909-355-6735.

There is good possibilities for front and rear fenders from $100/$200/$300 each depending onhow you want them cut, we are leaving them intact now until they are sold.

Rear panels and Rear window gas tank panel available at $100/$200/$300. This car does not present the best but we do have others for sale. Roof panels at $100. Frame rail and jacking paint areas at $100/$200. Rear coil spring and complete rear floor section available also ats $100/$200/$300 depending onhow you want it cut.

There was one other thing. A single great condition electrical dash for a GT removed properly. Everything original uncracked unbroken $200. As well as a Opel GT complete front axle assembly with mo rust or damage in the shock towers or in anything else. A non-rusted good front end for a GR for just $300.

As you can see, with all these parts there is only one available. Currently first come first saved.

Thank you so much. We are grateful to be in busines. In fact with you all at home our sales have ramped up significantly and we have no problem filling all the orders.

Stay tuned for the next post for all the new parts we have coming in from Germany. We are already taking pictires and people are already grabbing up the new parts from Germany that we haven't even carried before.

Take Care and Happy Opeling.

Y'know, I've always ignored this thread, because I wasn't interested in some summary of a pre-show 6 years ago. Eventually out of curiosity I wondered why people are still talking about a wrap-up before a show.

Not to kill a trend, but, why doesn't Opels Unlimited post their announcements in a thread titled "Opels Unlimited - New Stock & Sales" or something, instead of piggybacking on this one?

Four big boxes have come in from Germany so far and the last package was so heavy it must have been 80 pounds plus, It took two of us to get in down the hall.. This leads us to the first new exciting products for 1900/Manta Ascona owners. Some new great technology and a blast from the past on one.

Now available new for half the price. The second thing is the rear Springs engineered a great better Spring rate as well as a touch of the modern day variable progressive rate Springs. Not over kill. On this Sale just $249.95 per set of two.

#3. This is the black Spring set. A little bit taller but really great for all around street use. A set of these is even going in my famous Red 74 Wagon. Even we have been looking for an over the counter product like this for a long time. This Spring set only lowers your car 1 and 1/4 inches. The perfect height for street performance use. Rather fiendish actually, we are very excited.The front Springs are built similar to everything in number one. On this Sale $249.95 per set of two.

New Parts from Germany Special Sale Part Two Monday April 27, 2020

Here we go folks, 20+ new products we have never sold before. This Part Two is very exciting.

#1. We are so happy to announce brand new complicated front floorboards both right and left for the Manta/Asconas. This great product available driver and passenger for $249.95 each. A really great product even includes inner rocker sills or panels as you may call them. Rather difficult to import but we have it under control. We are ordering and getting some really big quantities from Germany lately. Even the heavy stuff.
Last week you enjoyed the Springs and Suspension Stuff and this week you will enjoy all the new replacement much sought after sheet metal pieces that we have been asked for some 20 years plus now.
#2. As most of you know we do have the front replacement jacking points as well. Exact reproduction. Very well made. On sale for $99 each.
#3. Here is a great new product always been so sought after and now Opels Unlimited has you covered for sure. A complete frame rail reinforcement and repair section. As one piece from the front end all the way down under the floor and all the way down past the jacking point and beyond. An awesome reinforcement and strengthening piece can even be bolted in straight across and right over an existing frame rail.
Now there is no way that the Manta 1900 Ascona chassis can be "too rusty". Now really about all of them can be fixed. This is a big thing we will be famous for. Available both right and left for $249.95 each.
#4. Of course, we still carry the reinforcement for the lower common rust issue. Even includes the big bolt area for the front end. This part we have sold for 10 years now and is very popular. Many of you have purchased this part. We just got a new batch in from Germany. Both sides. Driver’s side is available again. We got a good deal and big discount on shipping these this time so they are also on sale for $99 each.
#5. One more fresh taste of under body frame rail replacement. Sometimes we have had these in the past but this time we are bulk ordering these as well. This is the 2 1/2 footlong box frame rail extension as an exact
reproduction of the end frame rail replacement that goes all along under the floor for Manta Ascona 1900 Chassis.
#6. Although not as exotic we have an old favorite next. Has not been available for a while and now it is back. Chrome plated new Radiator Caps. Finally, available again after all these years for a great price. Limit two per customer. Now we have the chrome plated valve covered caps back in stock as well as the chrome plated radiator caps. All new German made as well. The good stuff at a great exchange rate. Your choice $18.95 each. Limit 2 per customer. All complete includes rubber installed ready to go.
#7. Here is another little thing that has come up a lot. The rear brake hardware kits. The really thick and complete Euro ones. 16 pieces in all. Super hard to get the last few years. Now we are bringing them in at a really great price. A perfect match for our high end, rear brake shoes that we just had manufactured. The complete metric German hardware kit just $29.95 limit one per customer. Add new rear brake cylinders for $49.95 for set of two.
#8. Another Opels Unlimited exclusive. Here is us babysitting a long complicated process to get the perfect rear brake shoes! Nobody wants rivets and nobody wants asbestos, but we all want a high end, dark, non-puffy, flakey material. We have that set up on perfect cores. All finished. We can provide one brake hardware spring kit complete with complete set of rear shoes with rear brake arms installed. An exact walk in and bolt in situation for just $99.95 each limit 2 per customer.
#9. The same things can be said for the front brake pad replacement with semi metallic brake pads and all new hold down pins and clip as a complete kit for both sides for just $59.95 on sale limit two per customer.
#10. On the subject of brakes, one more thing that always comes up that everyone needs are the 2 rubber brake lines for the front calipers as well as the single brake line for the rear brakes. Everyone wants the current upgrade with the larger diameter center. We certainly understand that, and everyone needs these replaced if they haven't been done recently, for sure. We anticipated the sales and picked up a great big batch this time so our sale is for all three brake lines for any GT, Manta, Kadett, 1900 or Ascona for just $99.95 package deal for the good stuff. Limit 2 sets per customer.
#11. Ok folks the last few specialty items, factory Opel stuff, GM. Everyone wants Opels Unlimited’s fresh new productions on all these items. Actually, there have been upgrades on all 3 with great success. Item number one, ok so here goes, some unobtanium for a great price, the torpedo gear factory GM O ring and inner cup seal as a great Metric upgrade set. In original packaging now everybody gets it right the first time $9.95, limit one per customer.
Number two, reverse light switch, all four speeds, late model design, the screw in type. The new ones have a stiffer spring and better oiling abilities inside. Nice improvements. These always used to be hard to get, especially at our price on an NOS part at $39.95 each, limit one per customer.
Number three, Opel 4 speed transmission gasket. A nice new soft reproduction that has a lot of black rubber combo mixed inside. Not just paper, not just cardboard. A really nice, fresh gasket, not shrunk up. The bomb so to speak. $14.95 each, limit 2. Also, factory, new NOS important front gasket for transmission. Non Repro. Correct thickness. Also $9.95 each, limit 2 per customer.
We hope you have all enjoyed Part Two of our current sale.
Part Three on the Wrap Up will be really good. We will show off all of our new engine gaskets for all sizes, also rebuild bearing kits, timing gears, valves and cams. Lots of goodies for the engine building in your future.
We hope you are all staying safe. We are doing great and putting out orders and with the inventory we have at home.
So glad to be able to be of service.
