Vroomy: ’72 Opel GT
These Opel GTs have a loyal following and we can understand why. They have sort of grown on us probably because there aren’t many decent survivors to admire. Designed by Opel Stylist Erhard Schnell, the Opel GT was a fastback, that had no trunk nor a conventional hatchback. There was a parcel shelf behind the seats that could only be accessed through the main doors. Behind the parcel shelf was a fold-up panel that concealed a spare tire and jack. The interior of the Opel GT was surprisingly large for a car of its size with generous headroom and legroom for those over 6 feet tall.During 1968 to 1973, a total of 103,463 cars were sold. There just isn’t a huge amount of Opel GTs out there for sale and we came across this reader submission in box and thought, why not? It is one of the later models with the 1.9 liter engines and a 4-speed transmission. It had one repaint many years ago and that finish can use a little aggressive buffing. All of the gauges and electrical bits work properly. The mileage is a decent 78,700 and the seller likes the way it runs. The interior has a small dash crack and a tear in the driver’s seat but otherwise it looks pretty roomy. The asking price is $7250. Not bad for a classic coke-bottle shaped sporty car.
