Description Opel GT AL 1973
This Opel GT AL was introduced as a counterpart to the Chevrolet Corvette. Because of this and also because of the difference in size, it was nicknamed "The poor man's Corvette". The size of the body is significantly smaller, in addition, the version of this Opel has half the cylinders compared to its big cousin.
The body of the GT was not made in Germany but by the French company Chausson. Chausson then sent the bare bodies to the French firm Brissonneau&Lotz (B&L). B&L was responsible for the painting and installation of wiring, interior, windows and chrome. The bodies then went by train to Germany to be completed with the mechanics in the factory in Bochum. The car was designed by Clare Mac Kichan and Erhard Schnell. The Opel GT came with an 1100 or 1900 engine and remained in production until 1973. Production ceased in 1973 when the supply companies Chausson and Brissonneau&Lotz were acquired by Renault.
This AL is from the last production year 1973 and one of the most luxurious versions. A lot of work has been done with chrome.
The Opel has been restored down to the smallest detail by an enthusiast. The suspension is sandblasted and galvanized (galvanized). New ATS rims have been fitted, which, together with the lime blue metallic paint, make the Opel a particularly striking appearance.
Beautiful new leather sports seats have been put in the car. The original black seats - with blasted and coated frames - are also present with the car.
The complete restoration has been documented in hundreds of photos and many invoices have been preserved. This documentation is of course included with the car.
