The strangest car you could find in a Buick dealer in 1972 wasn’t a Buick…but it did have styling that was hilariously similar to the Corvette and used transverse leaf spring suspension like the Vette. But where the size was 7/8ths scale of the Vette, the engine was only 1/8th the size, so performance isn’t exactly blistering…but GM sold an astonishing 103k example of these little West Germany assembled oddballs from 1968-1973. Today’s example has a nifty looking body kit and is offered at a premium price for a GT. Find this 1972 Opel GT offered for $14,995 in St Augustine, FL via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

Great Opel GT just out of 5 years of sitting in a garage Was my late uncle car he passed in 2015 and I got it this year after my Aunt passed this year.
I just changed the gas tank and sending unit fuel pump all rubber lines and carburetor gaskets the engine was rebuilt not long before it went for it’s 5 year nap. Sorry do not have receipts for anything did not know i was getting car.
The engine runs great and transmission shifts as it should no oil leaks this car is clean and a blast to drive.
The car does need a little body work to be perfect. This is the car from the Opel GT source’s body kit this should be the link
