This page is dedicated to the Glas GT and cousin BMW 1600GT -both built from the same Frua body. Here you will find links, listings for cars I find for sale, and chronological presentation of my posts about working on my Glas 1700 GT. I’m looking for information in English about the GT’s -especially a parts manual, and any spare parts/parts cars you may have. When I get a little farther with my rebuild I will be willing to take on Glas GT repair work at the shop I work out of in Berkeley. If you want to list a car for sale I’d be glad to post it here.

Glas 1700 GT. This car was sold through the reader comment section of BaT for $5000. Looked like a pretty good deal.
Glas 1700 GT 211*005778. This car is listed on Oldride.com by Giordano Vintage Motors out of Washington. I bought my SS from him. Car looks pretty good. Asking price is $13,950. No idea if that’s a good deal.
Glas 1700 GT. This car is listed on ClassiCar Garage out of the Netherlands for 39,000 Euro’s! Condition is said to be (and looks to be) near concours. Lots of headroom on mine if I do a good job -of course the difference between asking and selling prices is always interesting. Check out the YouTube video! I see video being used more and more in classic car sales in the near future.
Glas 1700 GT. This car is/or was listed on Listoy.com. There is no date on the ad, and no price. Described as ‘exactly like Jay Leno’s’, but I can’t seem to locate a Glas GT in Jay’s collection. Talked to the owner. of 30+ years This car is currently for sale. Offers are invited -I think $6,000 is the magic number. Not bad really if it runs.
Glas 1700 GT 211*005710. This car is listed with European Vintage Car Company. I can’t find a price on their page, but seem to remember seeing it was $11,000 somewhere. Has ‘Prototipo’ on the fenders, the wrong gauges and a chin spoiler.
