Ken, the current caretaker of this Opel GT, rescued the car approximately two years ago from a stalled father and son project that really just needed to be reassembled with a few new parts added to the large number of parts that came with the car. Originally built as a Rallye Orange car, the Father and Son team completed a color change repaint in a close approximation of Flame Red. We rate the paint job an amateur-level job and the Lemon Squad inspector went to great lengths to show the areas of orange peel and other blemishes. It’s a great-looking car, but know that the paint is not Concours quality.
Ken reports that all the replaced pieces were provided new in their shipping boxes. It is now complete and back on the road running great. While Ken elected to install the aftermarket wheels shown on the car, the original rims will be included as part of the sale (pictures to be provided soon).
