1985 Bitter 3.9 SC on eBay - $8750.00

UPDATE 1/28/09 - This car is back on eBay. The "Buy It Now" price is now $7750. Click here to see the new listing.
It was rumored throughout the eighties that Bitter was going to make a full fledged effort to sell cars in the US - The last rumor being that it was going to happen through Isuzu dealers!

That never happened and Erich Bitter's cars remain a rarity in the US.

Bitters were essentially Opels wrapped in stunning bodywork. There's nothing wrong with that. Opel running gear is strong and easy to get parts for (although you usually have to order them from Europe).

The Bitter SC listed on eBay is not being represented as a perfect example. It needs a little (easy) work. The price of the car ($8750 "Buy It Now) along with the work it needs should bring your total investment in the car to around $12,000.00 to $15,000.00 (It could be a lot less if you don't paint it, but the rust bubble will need attention and at that point why not paint the whole car? It could be a lot more if you go crazy and make it a show car, but this is a driver, not a show car, so why bother?). There are not many cars out there that offer German engineering and super-exclusivity for that kind of money.
