Opel GT
Chuck Jordan worked at Opel on the design that was eventually launched as Europe's 'mini Corvette', the 1968 Opel GT. The design was first aired at the 1965 Paris Salon and is believed to have been the work of Opel's own Erhard Schnell and developed in secret from production projects. However it was exhibited in 1965 and supported by GM's Clare MacKichan . Given the green light by GM management it was productionised by Chuck Jordan, gaining Corvette-like styling along the way, probably influenced by the Mako Shark II concept which also had a bearing on the design of the C3 Corvette. Opel Kadette mechanics underpinned the sporty coupe, although it was sold with engines as small as 1078cc. After 100,000 sales, the Opel GT ceased production in 1973.
