They were assembled in Germany, but the bodyshell was produced in France, 



 

The 1.1 was an OHV, but the 1.9 was an OHC engine

I had a GT when I was in California. A yellow one I had painted black. The body was built by the French firm Lotz & Brossonneau, a builder of Locomotives, plus the Renault Floride.

I just have to add this . The kit in nice . I have to agree with the assessment : " What were they smoking" when this was designed and tooled up origianlly . The proper and dependable 4 Popper from Opel being replaced with a Ralphie (Buick) V/6 is outrageous . A mechanical nightmare from it's inception . That is past the Engineering Design origin . The Bean Counters ruined it once again . Is it still 6 Generations of GM V/6's ? Resulting with one of these work like a real American Engine and not a prone to failure and nightmare . An external Oil Pump .. a 40 K Meltaway Camshaft .. I will stop here . The list of fatal flaws is long ..    Thanx ..
