    History of the logo. The company's logo has changed several times in the history. When the Nazis came to the government, the emblem looked like a dirigible flying through the letter "O". Since 1964, the famous lightning has been fixed as a logo.

    Replacements are hard to come by but plastic or vinyl stitched over dash covers are available from the US which can help as replacement parts are scarce. Designed by Opel Stylist Erhard Schnell, [4] the Opel GT is a fastback , that has neither an externally accessible trunk nor a conventional hatchback. The elegant module boldly stretches across the front of the car right under the bonnet. Its strong silhouette is accentuated by the bold graphic identity separating the upper and lower areas.

    The Opel GT was launched in and was the German manufacturers first attempt at making a modern sports car. Power was supplied by a cc over head valve four cylinder engine which produced 67BHP. A much larger cc engine was also offered which produced BHP, which proved the most popular choice. A four speed transmission was standard with a Strasbourg three speed automatic offered with the larger engine.

    As the Opel GT shared much of its mechanics with the Kadett, its was fitted with a transverse leaf front suspension and a coil sprung live axle on the rear. Disc brakes were added on the front and drums on the rear. The slippery body was fitted with manually operated pop-up headlights which was operated by a long lever in the cabin.

    The cars sweeping fastback design lacked a rear boot lid which meant access to the rear parcel shelf was restricted through the front. This made the GT less attractive as a long distance grand tourer.

    By the time production of the Corvette lookalike came to an end in , over , had been built with over 70, or so heading to North America. We have spotted for sale a Opel GT that is offered as a restoration project. The seller states that work was started on the body which is now in primer. The bodywork is described as being very good with the only rust located in the battery tray area.

    This one has the 1. The interior, wiring and brakes also require attention. The listing also notes the car is complete and comes with its wheel trims and centres, both front and rear bumpers and its badges.

    The Opel GT is a rare gem from the German makers automotive past. It is probably the most striking and beautiful car they have ever made. It really is a wonderful example of the fastback GT class designs of the late s, with its long bonnet up front and seductive curves. It is also a very simple design to look at with a minimum amount of fuss and chrome, which helped greatly with the aerodynamics.

    With this GT, it is a restoration project that deserves a full strip down and rebuild. The photos suggest that the bodywork is pretty straight with little bits of primer wear on the left side wing. As a California car it should be rust free but a detailed check would be wise. And as the seller notes, replacements are available. The interior does look tired but the seats appear to be intact and might respond well to a good clean. The dash pad carpet appears to be masking a cracked dashboard, which is hardly surprising for a California sourced car.

    Replacements are hard to come by but plastic or vinyl stitched over dash covers are available from the US which can help as replacement parts are scarce. We expect it is fitted with its original single throat Solex carb so would look to upgrade these to twin Webers which would eek a few extra horses from the motor. The engine bay also shows signs that this may have been an orange car with some paint visible along the bonnet shut gap.

    We featured an orange GT a few months ago in the Classic Car Auctions feature and we think its a colour that suits the car. On the underside the suspension components look a little tired so it would benefit for a full rebuild. Overall this Opel GT does need work. For a car as rare as this, it deserves that level of attention. We would uprate the suspension, add larger wheels and tyres, install a Getrag five gearbox and add some twin Webbers.
