comment of Dale:
The  other opel with 383 , it is posible that it is a sister car of the one I have, hollywood sold 2 just like that, in a storage action and one went to the east coast , one had a ford moter and one had  383  ,they would match race in califonia drag strips

The movie star harrison ford drove these cars in several movies

goto to the other car
