CLEAN AND CLEAR TITLE IN HAND
The Opel GT is a front-engine, rear-drive two-seat sports car
manufactured and marketed by Opel in two generations - separated by
a 34-year hiatus.
The first generation Opel GT (1968 -1973) debuted as a styling
exercise in 1965 at the Paris and Frankfurt motor shows. The
production vehicle used mechanical components from the contemporary
Opel Kadett B and two-door hard top bodywork by French contractor
Brissonneau & Lotz. The styling of the GT was often cited as
similar to the 1968 Chevrolet Corvette which went on sale in
Opel marketed a second generation GT (2007-2009) as a rebadged
variant of the Saturn Sky/Pontiac Solstice two-seater convertible,
manufactured in Wilmington, Delaware, USA.
In 2016, Opel introduced the GT Concept at the 2016 Geneva Motor
Show as a lightweight, turbocharged, rear-wheel drive
The Opel GT was equipped with a base 1.1 L OHV inline-four engine,
which produced 67 hp (SAE) at 6,000 rpm. However, most buyers chose
an optional 1.9 L camshaft in head engine, which produced 102 hp
(SAE) at 5200 to 5400 rpm. Some of the early 1968 models also came
with a slightly higher compression "H" code cylinder head. In 1971,
due to emissions regulations, Opel reduced the compression ratio of
the 1.9 L engine used in the US and output fell to 83 hp (SAE).
There was also a GT/J model, which was a less expensive version of
the 1900-engined GT which was sold only in Europe. Standard
transmission was a manual four-speed. A three-speed automatic was
available with the 1.9 L engine. The model run of the Opel GT was
from 1968 to 1973.
The Opel GT uses a steel unibody and a front mid-engined,
rear-wheel drive layout. The engine is mounted far back in the
chassis to improve weight distribution. Front suspension consists
of upper A-arms and a lower transverse leaf spring - aside from the
Opel's styling, the unusual use of a transverse leaf-spring in the
suspension was another remarkable commonality with Chevrolet's
Corvette. A live axle and coil springs are used in the rear. The
power-assisted braking system uses discs in the front, drums in the
rear. Steering is unassisted.
One unusual feature of the Opel GT is the operation of the pop-up
up and down headlights. They are manually operated, by way of a
large lever along the center console next to the shifter. Unlike
most pop-up headlights, they both rotate in the same direction
(counterclockwise from inside the car) about a longitudinal
Designed by Opel stylist Erhard Schnell, the GT is a fastback, that
has neither an externally accessible trunk nor a conventional
hatchback. There is a parcel shelf behind the seats that can only
be accessed through the main doors. Behind the parcel shelf is a
fold-up panel that conceals a spare tire and jack.
During 1968 to 1973, a total of 103,463 cars were sold. The most
collectible GTs are probably the first few hundred cars
hand-assembled in 1968 and the 1968-1970 models with the 1.1 L
engine, which totaled 3,573 cars. Of the later cars, 10,760 were
the cheaper model (GT/J), which lacked nearly all chrome parts and
offered fewer standard features. In some markets, items like a
limited slip differential, front and rear anti-sway bars, heated
rear window, and engine bay light were standard, although most cars
were shipped without them.
