"You hardly ever see these anymore, making it a rare find."


The car was sold new in 1957 in Göteborg to the owner’s father in law, who owned it until he passed away in the late 1990´s and given to his son. The car has always been garaged and in the late 1970´s only driven during the summer and on vacations hence the low mileage and nice condition. The car has undergone a rust prevention treatment earlier in its life and that’s preserved it from rust, during the 1990´s the car was painted in its original colors.

Facts about the model

Opel Rekord P1 hette de första två åren Opel Olympia Rekord P. Den presenterades i augusti 1957 och ersatte föregående modellen Opel Olympia Rekord. Den var större än sin föregångare och hade både fram och bak fått panoramafönster som fortsatte runt hörnen. På det sättet efterliknade bilen de populära amerikanska modellerna från GM och även koncernsläktingen Vauxhall Victor FA, som presenterades några månader tidigare.
Opel Rekord P1 var i Västtyskland den näst bäst säljande modellen under de år den fanns, slagen bara av den mindre och billigare Volkswagen typ 1. Modellen blev trots det inte så långlivad, utan ersattes på sommaren 1960 av Rekord P2. Den gamla karossen fortsatte att tillverkas fram till 1962 under namnet Opel 1200, en förenklad lågprisversion.
Om karossen var ny och modern var tekniken desto äldre. 1500-motorn var i stort sett identisk med den som satt i Opel Olympia 1937.
