"The car is in its original condition and large parts of the original paint are still intact. The interior is well-preserved. It has been started up and inspected by a knowledgeable mechanic."


The car has had few owners who have taken good care of it. The current owner's great grandfather owned it from the beginning and his son after him. It was parked in 1993 and stored in a barn. He bought it in 2019 and began renovating and starting it up again. The fenders had already been replaced so he arranged for a new paint job.

Facts about the model

Kadett B was introduced in 1966 and had grown in all dimensions, but it was mainly based on the same technology as its predecessor. All Kadett B models had front transverse springs. From 1966 to 1967, they had leaf springs at the rear, while from 1968 to 1973, they were equipped with coil springs, except for the Caravan model, which retained leaf springs. An odd version called the Olympia was also available, which was a slightly more luxurious variant than the Kadett. However, apart from ornamentation and engines, it was identical to the Kadett.

Larger engines were also introduced. The standard engine was now 1100cc, but there were also options for 1500cc, 1700cc, and later, 1900cc in the popular Rally-Kadett (Coupé) and Kadett Sport (Sedan). The powerful 90 DIN hp engine provided the Rally-Kadett and Kadett Sport with excellent performance, and they were extensively used in motor races, achieving great success. Inspired by this, Opel built an even stronger Rally-Kadett with the 1900cc engine tuned to 106 DIN hp. This version was named "Sprint," similar to the larger Rekord when equipped with the tuned engine.

As a curiosity, it should be mentioned that since the Kadett B was not originally designed for the larger 1500/1700/1900 engines, it was not possible to lift the engine upwards. Instead, the front suspension had to be disassembled, and the engine had to be lowered under the car!
