Opel GT. 1968–73 (prod. 103,463 sold). 2-door coupé. F/R, 1078 cm³ (I4 OHV), 1897 cm³ (I4 CIH). Very stylish compact coupé based on Kadett B components, designed by Clare MacKichan, with Chevrolet Corvette (C3) influences. Some early rust issues. Refined and quick. Smaller 1·1-litre model collectible today and relatively rare, as most buyers went with 1·9. Larger unit only after 1970, with lower-priced GT/J, equipped with the larger engine, introduced in 1971. No direct successor as Kadett C went on the GM global T-car platform.
