Cool Runner: 1970 Opel GT

The Opel GT was a compact sports car by GM’s European subsidiary Opel from 1965 to 1973.  The little  “poor man’s Vette” (reference to its styling similarity with Chevrolet’s C3 Covette) was sold and maintained at Buick dealers in North America, an odd place to find a European transplant and undoubtedly part of the reason it was sales failure. The Opel GT has been cheap enough for years that scores have been crushed and sometime soon we expect the remaining cars to keep appreciating. Find this 1970 Opel GT offered for $7700 near Seattle, WA via craigslist.
