    I would rank this beautiful little car amongst the greatest car designs ever, like the Lamborghini Miura, Jaguar type E, Ford GT40 etc. Sheer beauty, from every angle! Many adverts showed the Opel GT with an aeroplane in the background. I owned my first Opel GT from till I was still in pilot training flying Fouga Magisters when I found this second hand car for sale. Being young and inexperienced, I bought this GT which looked very nice at first sight but appeared to be a problem car.

    It had been repainted in red Standox Fiat red on the outside only. The rear side markers were overpainted in black. As if that was not enough, another car crashed into the right hand side. I had to find and buy another door, install it and repaint it all within the same weekend. I did the complete repair including the paint job out of doors with snow on the floor The initial aftermarket mirrors were replaced by a pair of nicer looking examples which received the same colour as the body.

    The original wheels were replaced by Borranni wheel rims with wider tyres. I don't recall the exact size but I believe I had 's at the rear and 's at the front. I managed to install the original chrome center hubs on the Borranni and that looked quite good.

    I was flying FG Starfighters at that time. I always regretted I hadn't kept the car in storage. My current GT is indeed a much, much better car!

    Perhaps the Opel GT was cheaper accross the border? Anyway, it was registered for the first time in Belgium on 15 September , so a bit over a year later. The first owner took great care of his car and I'm very gratefull for that! He had the car treated for corrosion prevention "Dinitrol" probably right after purchase and that has proven to be of utmost value on this otherwise rust sensitive car.

    Also the interior is extremely well maintained! Second owner The second owner bought the car towards the end of with around km on the odometer. He had the car professionally repainted in the original colour again DD Sahara Gold. The factory paint had suffered from minor blemishes and scratches as a result of driving the car regularly over a period of 32 years.

    The new paint job is very well done indeed even though only the exterior was done. The interior parts did not require any repaint as everything was still in excellent shape thanks to the "Dinitrol". I purchased the car in this state from the second owner on 19 April with km on the odometer.

    I was very suspicious for hidden corrosion but having owned the car for a few months now, I have yet to find the first spot of rust! This helped me a lot to do the proper repairs on several issues I had: These forums are a wealth of info and I do recommend them without hesitation!

    As such, I was aware of safety issues with possible chafing on the revolving head light wiring, so I added relays for circuit protection. I also replaced the brake lines which had swollen, this had been suggested on the forums as well. Some cosmetic repairs were then carried out: I also replaced the dented carb air filter adapter with a second hand one and I installed chromed valve cover and radiator caps.
