1973 Opel 1900 Station Wagon...

If this is all the seller says it is, this is a bargain.

This is a complete, fairly solid, running Opel 1900 wagon. You could consider this car - for all intents and purposes - an Opel Manta with cargo space. It uses the same platform, same engine and many of the same parts.

This car has been in storage since 1987. The seller says he recently drove it 50 miles without any problems other than it stalling at lights. (My guess would be that it still has the original - crap - Solex carb. A Weber conversion is pretty much mandatory on an Opel. It will cure the stall and make the car run better than it ever did.)

The seller says to has a few small rust spots and needs a bit of interior work, but it wouldn't take much to make it a nice driver. It comes with an extra set of wheels.

There is one downside to this car; the owner does not have a title. (Which really isn't a big deal... Some states don't require titles for cars this old. If yours does, there are companies out there that will get you a title.)

The huge upside to this car is the price... $895.00

That front end has a vague resemblance to the Holden Torana of the same period.
