This page contains links to V-8 powered Opel GTs I've seen for sale over the years. I thought I'd archive the ads as I find them to try to get a long-term sense of the market for these cars. The ads on this site are from four primary sources:
I've sorted the ads into three somewhat-arbitrary sections:
The format for the listings is:
Website, Date, Price*
My comments about the listing, where applicable
The original ad text in italics (verbatim, other than the removal of contact info)
As of 9/07 I've started including the ad/auction number when available. This will allow you to track down the seller's contact info if the item is still listed. Beyond this, I don't retain any additional information about the sellers, so if you're interested in purchasing one of the cars listed here your best bet is to try and track them down through the site the ad appeared on.
*NOTE: It's very common for the asking price to drop periodically, since people seem to initially price the cars based on what they've spent, and they just aren't worth that much. With the exception of the E-bay cars, though, I have no way to tell what sold and what didn't, or for what price. If the same car was listed multiple times, that's mentioned as well.
So there you have it. If you're thinking of buying, scan the ads below to get a sense of what things are worth. If you're thinking of building, scan the ads below for ideas and to get a sense of what you're getting into. And best of luck with whatever path you choose.

Ebay, 2/06, Sold for $6,500
Note that the stock "cockroach" bump in the hood was mirrored on the other side. Additional middle bump added as well for clearance. IMHO someone got a good deal.
You are bidding on a 1970 Opel GT with a small block 327 Chevy Corvette motor. Motor is bored 30 over, true dual exhaust, high pro cam, custom headers, 650 Holley Carb. 350 turbo trans. w/ shift kit and a Saturday Night Special converter. Many new parts: Brakes, rotors (front and rear), outer tire rods, tires and battery. Car runs very strong and fast. Headlights flip up with ease. All lights work. Some cracks on dash, typical of Opels. There is a dash cover on it that looks great! The rest of the interior is in exellent cond. New carpets.
Ebay, 3/06, Bid to $8,700 which didn't meet the reserve
Clean install, could almost pass for stock under the hood. No obvious roll cage or other reinforcement, but the torque tube would help mitigate the need for those.
This is a 1972 Opel GT Semi-Pro-Street. It has a 350 with mild cam and 350 Turbo with shift kit newly rebuilt with new 3000 stall converter just installed. With B&M Star shifter. It has a Ford 9" rear narrowed with drum brake with a center link ladder bar torque tube from the rear end to the rear motor mount. When the transmission was replaced the emergency brake was taken out for clearance reasons. I was going to replace it with the emergency brake on the drive shaft. Stock GM exhaust manifolds with custom dual exhaust. All light lenses and head lights are new. I was going to put them in when the car was redone. It also has an almost perfect front bumper and 2 rear C shaped trim pieces around entire rear end. The seats are from an Acura that are retro fitted in the car. The rest of the interior needs redone. The dash is cracked like 95% of all Opels. The carpet is available from OpelGTsource.com. New parts included are: Windshield and rubber, Rear window rubber and a Radiator with extra cores. New American racing wheels with Mickey Thompson ET Street legal slicks. The front wheels are 14 x 6 with 185/60 x 14 tires. The rear wheels are 15 x 10 with 275/60 x 15 tires. I have quite a few extra parts to refinish or rebuild that will come with the car. I was going to install them after the car was rebuilt. Including a sport comp speedometer, tach, water, oil and fuel gauges. There is no radio in the car. The hood scoop is a 7 inch pro-stock bolt on that was never painted. There are two small rust spots. One on the passenger floor about the size of a half dollar. And on the right rear quarter panel at the rear of the tire. That is about the extent of it. It is very minor. This car is fun to drive and gets more attention at cruise night than my 69 Camaro R/S did. It has more than enough power for a car to run on the street every day if you wanted to.

Looks to be a very well done chassis. As the buyer mentions, very little Opel left. Either someone flipped it a month later for a quick profit, or the orginal sale fell through.
This is an 1969 Opel Gt. The only opel left in it is the roof and rear shell. It is 100% tube frame. Olds 455 auto. Car has not been started since 2000. Sold as is. Although doors are not mounted I do have them. Comes with one piece fiberglass front end. Was not built by me so I can't tell you much...what you see is what you get...do have a box with some of the lights and lenses.
On Mar-25-06 at 12:25:26 PST, seller added the following information: I took some better pictures and made some observations. Took one pic through the side window showing the surface rust on the body shell (the underside is not painted) this rust sands off easily as shown in pic. The body shell needs to be removed and sand blasted etc... All window area was to be lexan. No lexan included. Door windows are fixed. Do not roll up or down. I do have regular opel gt doors if you prefer to do the mods yourself. You can have whichever doors you prefer. I may have enough regular glass if you choose, not sure and this should not be considered when bidding. The hood and doors are at a friends ranch and I will try to get photos tomorrow.

I included this one because it was listed as an Opel GT on E-bay. It's a bit beyond the intended scope of this page, but I couldn't resist. The ad text below was pared down some from the original listing.
LOOKING FOR THE PROJECT OF A LIFETIME? THIS IS ONE OF THE WILDEST STREET DRIVEN CARS EVER ASSEMBLED. THE BRAINCHILD OF AN OHIO STREET RODDER, THIS MACHINE FIRST APPEARED AT NATIONAL STREET ROD ASSOCIATION MEETS IN THE MID SEVENTIES AS THE FLIP TOP 1976 OPEL GT FUNNY CAR "MOODY BLUES". IN 1978 AND 1979, THIS SAME GEARHEAD WAS DROPPING JAWS AT THE STREET ROD NATIONALS IN A '23T ALTERED. IT WAS IN FACT THE SAME CHASSIS WITH TWO DISTINCT BODIES. THROUGH THE YEARS, DISPLAYED AT NUMEROUS STREET ROD AND HOT ROD SHOWS. IN RECENT OUTINGS, THE OPEL WAS AWARDED 2ND PLACE HONORS IN THE FUNNY CAR DIVISION AT 2005 AND 2006 WORLD OF WHEELS.
EXTERIOR- Both bodies are fiberglass and still in the original lacquer finishes from back in the seventies. Note- the software would not allow me to load the auction unless I specified a number of doors, so I had to put in a number- obviously, neither body has doors. The Opel body was custom formed by the Ohian- lengthened 15" in the cowl area, chopped 6", and flared at all four fender wells. Body is in remarkable condition for it's vintage. Finish also still in great shape- you will see in the photo there are some minor shrinkage cracks on both rear wheel wells. Custom Blue Lacquer paint with marbelized anodizing and custom graphics. Look carefully at the graphics- this method hasn't been applied in decades. Old school painters refer to the method jokingly as "Smoke Wrench Graphics". In actuality it is a procedure that requires the utmost skill. After base paint and color graphics were applied, a smoking cutting torch was transversed across the graphics, then the whole finish was sealed. Stock front and rear bumpers. Chevy Vega grill. Corvair Monza headlights. Opel tail lights. Chevy Nova turn signals. Front and rear spoiler. Simpson parachute. Chrome four point bracing rod holds body in the raised position for display. See photo of extra parts- hydraulic body lift is included with the car but is not installed. The Opel earned second place honors is the Funny Car category at World of Wheels in 2005 and 2006. The altered body is also finished in Custom Blue Lacquer. The same custom graphics were applied to the body. Look at the magazine picture of the altered. The radiator cowl and front dual wing go with the car. The mid and rear wing, and front wheel fairings do not. Quality of body and finish is equal to that of the Opel.
DRIVETRAIN- 1958 Chrysler 392 HP Hemi. Engine is a complete long block that was fully rebuilt 6 years ago and never run. Complete internally. Complete heads installed. Custom fabricated Zoomie Headers. Moon fuel tank. For display purposes at World of Wheels, the engine was mocked up with a blower, belt, etc. The GMC 6-71 blower, intake, all front pulleys and hardware, and the Enderle Bug Catcher Hat are included. The blower case only is mounted on the car. The internals are in the photo of the parts and are included. There is no fuel delivery system with the car- just the hat. Cross Flow Corvette radiator and cooling fan not installed but included. So to summarize, you have a complete rebuilt Hemi that you may have to do some work on before you fire it and a blower that will need rebuilding. You will have to install a fuel delivery system of your choice, as well as some miscellaneous plumbing and wiring. You will also have to plumb the cooling system. There is a bell housing, but no transmission. Again, the software forced me to enter a trans type, but there is none. In the parts photo, you will see a driveshaft included that bolted up to the original Clutchflite trans. Original chromed Olds narrowed differential with 4.56 gears and Henry's Axles. Chrome wheelie bars.
CHASSIS- Custom fabricated 1 3/4" tubed chassis. 110" wheelbase. Front straight tube axle, dropped 4". Anglia front spindles. Four Link Split Wishbone- Koni coil over shocks. SPE steering. No front brakes- it's light- don't need them. Rear suspension is ladder bar with coil over shocks. Hurst/Airheart Dual Spot rear disc brakes. Recent full Funny Car cage- will accomodate large driver. Padded racing seat with harnesses. Mini steering wheel. Fuel and brake hardware. Drag star 15" front wheels with Skinnies. Centerline Beadlocks with Goodyear 32x14.5x15 slicks on rear.

Good deal for what looked like a well-built rolling chassis.
This car is being sold as a rolling chassis only (no motor or trans). This is a great opportunity to get a quick, full tube chassis, bracket car for a fraction of what it would cost to duplicate. This car started out as a street driven stock Opel GT. Several years ago, a 2X3 inch Jegs chassis was put under the car. With a mild SBC and glide, the car ran consistent 6.30's with 1.35 60 ft times. The car was all steel (except hood) and weigh in at 2150 lbs. A little over two years ago, the body was cut away and a Chassis Engineering Eliminator mild steel tube chassis was put in. It has a fully braced 9 in Ford rear end (5.13 gears) with four link and wishbone locator. It has a 3 gallon aluminum fuel cell and Aeromotive fuel pump. The car used to run both gas and methanol, so it is plumbed with a bypass style regulator and return lines. The parachute and window net are from Stroud and the wheelie bars are Art Morrison. Up front is Strange Engineering struts and brakes. It has disc brakes all around and a funny car cage. The front end is fiberglass and removable. The lexan windows are okay, but after years of use, could stand to be replaced. New seat belts will be needed as the old ones are out of date. The car comes with all electronics (cross over delay box, electric shifter, line loc, Holley annhilator ignition box with rev/retard/shift/staging controls). Gauges are all Autometer. Also comes with Griffin pro stock style radiator with fan and chrome moly drive shaft with 1350 series u-joints. The rear tires are brand new Goodyear 14x31 D5 with tubes. They have not been balanced. Included is the aluminum motor plate, thermal coated Dynatech headers for SBC and SFI certified mid plate/flex plate shield. The car has not been scaled or out to the track yet. I have some other projects I am trying to get finished before we move and just don't have the time to get out the track like I use to. The car should weigh in around 2000 lbs and with the motor I had put in, expected to run in the 5.8 to 5.9 second range (eigth mile).

OPEL GT PRO/STREET PROJECT! (NO MOTOR or TRANSMISSION!) (NO RESERVE AUCTION!!!) One Time (A LONG TIME AGO!) This car was a World of Wheels show car. PRO/STREET with a BLOWN Chevrolet motor. I was told? I do seem to remember seeing the car. ? Over the years other owners done they're toll to the car. It needs Someone, Maybe You? To take it apart and FIX MISC. things like trans tunnel aluminum replaced, Damaged by a hacker? The rear 1/4's have small pieces once cut off tack welded back on? Will need finishing. There is a DENT under the frt. valance that will take some work other wise there is'nt too much other body work. It's really pretty straight. And some other fabrication work to get it back in shape. And be a AWESOME PRO/STREETER AGAIN! The car has a factory VIN.# plate and a CLEAR TITLE. Has a Ford 9" rear with 33spline axels & a 4.89 gear. Ladder Bar coil rear suspension. Rack & pinion steering. Line Lock. Weld wheels, 14X32X15 M/T Slicks. Full Frame & cage. It won't cert. is legal to go 10.0 1/4 mi. ALL ALUMINUM in interior from the trans tunnel in the frt. to the back window is in VERY NICE shape! Powerglide shifter. misc. gages. wiring? (which I would redo) Has a huge radiator in frt. Set-up for a SBC & Glide. All glass windows except windsheild which is missing would be Lexan. Door windows will roll up & down. With some work you can have a GREAT PRO/STREET car, that you won't see every where!
