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.
