Car description

This 1970 Opel GT (chassis 942195206) was purchased new from a Buick Opel dealer in Sterling. Illinois in October of 1970. Extensive work was carried out over its lifetime by the same mechanic that installed the dealer-added A/C system when the car was new. and mechanical invoices total over $8k in the last three years to bring it back up to the condition shown here. I brought the car to California three years ago and it is in solid driving condition. The body had a partial respray a number of years ago in the original L406 Chartreuse color. so the paint is good but not perfect. It shows some rust in places. but not extensive. Original mileage is 76. xx. and it includes the original books. warranty document. and tools. The bumpers and trim look to be in excellent condition… much nicer than you usually see on these cars. The dashboard is in excellent condition following a full removal and re-cover job in 2010 that included removing all instruments. heater controls. and stereo. The dash was removed and re-covered outside the car and then properly reinstalled. The look is way better than most worn stock dashes we see in these cars. All new gauge and control bulbs were added at that time. The rest of the interior is all original. including the factory steering wheel and radio. That wild center console is the dealer added A/C vent system. The engine has had extensive maintenance and upkeep as documented by many invoices from the same shop in Illinois. They totaled the following and are available for review:2013: $951. 272013: $329. 4910/6/11: $2052. 198/9/11: $485. 086/14/11: $122. 575/31/11: $70. 061/24/11: $2088. 678/30/10:$1828. 67The mechanic who did the work over the most recent years was the young Buick/Opel mechanic who installed the air conditioning originally at the dealership. He removed the transmission for rebuilding and replaced the factory carb with a much better running Weber in October of 2011. The steering rack was also fully rebuilt at the same time the dash restoration was done in 2010. This is a very attractive vehicle. and one which will give the new owner a great number of wonderful motoring miles--plus lots of "thumbs up" from other drivers!
