Until the 1960s Opel had an image of ordinary middle-class reliability, so GM imported from the US designers and engineers to give the Germany company a change of image in an effort to improve sales. The results were a series of show specials, one of which became the Opel GT which made its debut in 1965. It was perceived as a European Corvette, a high-performance two-seater with dramatic styling to make an impact. The first small-engined models were not a success, but the larger engined 1900GT proved to be much more like it, however. Nevertheless, the Opel GT was never a very big seller and in 1973 the manufacturers withdrew it from the market. The articles in this collection show that Opel GTs appeal to a wide variety of enthusiasts today and also accurately reflect the way it was seen when it was new. The story of Opel's stylish & practical GT is told through 57 international articles. Reported on is the coupe, fitted with both 1100 and 1900 engines. Included are road, service & comparison tests, new model intros plus features on selecting, restoring & maintaining a GT. With 200 pages, 30 full colour.

Book Description Brooklands Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. During the 1960s GM decided that a change of image would improve sales of the Opel, so designers and engineers were imported from the US to give the German company a shot in the arm and one of the results was the Opel GT which made its debut at Frankfurt in 1965. It was seen as a sort of European Corvette - a high-performance two-seater with dramatic styling. The Opel GT was never a very big seller and in 1973 its manufacturers withdrew it from the market altogether. In five years of production, just 103,463 cars had been sold, of which 37,726 had been the Model 77 for the US market. These low sales had also discouraged the company from producing right-hand drive models. In some ways, the GT is better appreciated now than it was when new and the articles in this collection show that Opel GTs appeal to a wide variety of enthusiasts today.
