      That's too new for Radwood. Only 2002 MY for USA. Needs to be 1980-1999.

      Super nice truck though.

      That is a project that is beyond my ability (or budget). In addition to the accident, there is some rust that needs repair. It also needs interior work. It would be nice to find someone who can save this wagon, but....

      ^As a B5 owner I remember coveting all the amazing features of the W8 beyond the engine: Those Xenon headlights, those really fancy gauges, those wheels, 6 speeds, two red LED ambiance lights near the sunroof dial, and those quad exhaust pipes. So exotic!! Looking back now I'm like

      My guess is the damage wasn't actually very bad but since the truck is so depreciated it totaled out. It's clearly a truck that's been loved so my guess is the owner opted to fix it. Assuming my theory is right I wouldn't be too concerned.

      There's a local junkyard that has several of those! I've never seen one on the road though.

      Holy Moly!

      I'm curious, how much is that worth as it sits? Safe to assume it should really receive a full rewiring, and hopefully the rust/rot is minimal (yea right)...

      Well the good news is that you can pretty much only improve upon it from there. If you needed a good excuse to do not feel guilty about a whacky engine swap or paint job, there it is.

      They're asking $1000, which I think is about $250 too much as it sits, and that's assuming the rot is minimal (like you said, possible, but unlikely). Wiring I don't mind tackling, but I'm not looking for extensive structural replacement. They're not "common", but as BlueBunnyRabbit pointed out, they're not exactly hard to find if you go looking for them. It's not the most desirable spec as a '72 4-speed 1.9L ( a '70 would be better; emissions requirements lowered output from 102 to 83HP in '71), but it's like two towns away from me, I love the color and the side decal and at least in the pics the rockers look OK, so that's why I'm going to take a look at it.

      I had a new one of those back in my early college days, a '71, best hidden headlights ever but not much else going for it... But man, it sure was fun during the time and got me frequently laid. Love me some GT...

      Gotcha. Everyone is picking up Covid project cars, so you should jump in too!

      I know nothing about these cars (and didn't search). Is the engine/driveline shared with any other manufacturers? If the chassis is solid enough would you even be bothered by the less desirable spec considering it needs so much else? Realistically, it looks like the perfect candidate to tear down to the shell and install whatever your favorite engine/trans combination is in there with whatever mounting point welding is required... I can't imagine a state would do emissions inspections for a car that old?

      Out of curiosity I did a quick search, and it looks like the engine is pretty specific. I also got a little frustrated that I couldn't find any "head-on" pictures of the engine bay to gauge how wide it is, and then realized that it's a front-hinged hood.

      One Opel enthusiast site was full of grumpy people that frown on engine swaps, so more the reason to pick it up and do whatever the heck you want with it!

      At first I was thinking Miata engine/trans, or something simple like a Ford 2.3 OHC with a T-5. But how cool would it be to tie in a little GM heritage and swap in a Quad 4!

      I'd pass on the Opel even if it was free. Would be way cheaper to just buy a rust free project car from a dry state such as this..

      https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/cto...144271499.html

      ..than spend more money/time trying to save this one. Maybe I'm wrong and the car sat in a dry barn for 20 years and all those leaves/pine cones were put there by squirrels but it appears to be a car that was left out in the wet, windows open, in the woods of New Hampshire. No thanks.

      The smell of mouse turds will never come out.
      If you can't measure it, you can't understand it; if you can't understand it, you can't control it.
