"The best rally Kadett we've ever seen. There are no remarks. The car's history is recounted in Klassiker's Sportextra magazine no. 1.2012."


It's like looking at a shimmering yellow and black mirage. This is how one of Sweden's best, authentic Opel Rallye Kadetts may be described. An Opel specialist, finished the restoration in Stockholm in 2011. The car won first place in the Kadett class at the Opel Club the same year. The car still feels as good today as it did when it was new. Ready and waiting for fresh rallies. It just needs one more trip to the car test before it is free from inspection and MOT. When you sit behind the wheel with the motor idling and accelerate, you can't help but grin. Since 2016, the car has been displayed at Kisa Bilmuseum. Spare wheels, tools, and a jack are supplied, as are two crates with spare components and documentation.
According to Group 1 rules from 1970: - Group 1 Car  - Close ratio gearbox with a higher first gear - Shifted gimbal with differential lock - Instrument panel - Rally seats - Four-point belt - Skid plate - Reinforced suspension and shock absorbers - Spot lights according to Opel's rally specification at the time, 70-liter Opel Blitz fuel tank in the trunk. A 1900 engine with a twin Weber 40 DFO carburetor (which produced 106 horsepower in the Sprint version). - Front disc brakes with a two-circuit system and a braking servo.
In 1969, the car's new price with rally equipment was SEK 27,400, which was more than the most expensive Volvo (164) at the time.

  • Mechanical condition:

    Excellent technical condition. When tested, it works without a glitch. GHL Bilservice renovated the engine in 2014.

  • Interior condition:

    The inside is just as gorgeous as the outside. Rally seats, additional gauges, a roll bar, and Halda's famous gauges tripmaster and speedpilot. New cables are required to connect the Halda gauges.

  • Exterior condition:

    From 2008 to 2011, the inside and exterior were professionally renovated and painted.

  • General condition:

    Too wonderful to drive on gravel roads in exhibition condition. It does not appear to have been rally driven, since there are no signs of damage or repairs. Everything is just as wonderful on the inside as it is on the exterior and underneath.
    OBS! New information: We have information from the owner and from Opel-experts that this car is an original Rallye -Kadett. Regarding the Sprint-engine some experts says that this engine came in production in this model in the end of 1969.

Facts about the model

Opel Kadett B kom ut på marknaden i augusti 1965. Den såg mer spänstig ut än sin föregångare. Trots att den nya modellen var lite större. Kadett fanns som 4-dörrars, 2-dörrars, herrgårdsvagn och som coupé. Basmotorn var fyrcylindrig med överliggande kamaxel. Den var på 1100 cc och gav i standardutförande 45 hk. I november 1966 lanserades Opel Rallye Kadett. Den hade 1100 cc motor med dubbla enkelförgasare som gav 60 hk. Den blev en populär rallybil. Men den stora framgången inom rallysporten kom först efter ett svenskt initiativ. 60 hästkrafter i all ära, men varför inte lyfta i den större 1900 cc motorn på 90 hästkrafter från Opel Rekord. Det svenska initiativet avvisades initialt av Opels tyska ingenjörer. Så många hästkrafter i den mindre bilen var man tveksam till. Dessutom menade man att motorn inte fick plats utan omfattande modifieringar av karossen. Ett svenskt team gjorde slag i saken. Man ämnade bevisa sin tes. Teamet monterade 1900 cc motorn och satte Kadetten på en biltransport ner till fabriken i Tyskland. Resten är rallyhistoria. Plötsligt kunde man beställa en nästan färdig rallybil hos den lokala Opelförsäljaren. Framgångarna lät inte vänta på sig. Sporrade av framgångarna tog Opel fram en Sprint-version av Rallye Kadett. Med dubbla Weber förgasare gav den 106 hk. Under några år i början på 1970-talet var Rallye Kadett med i toppstriden inom rallysporten. I 1970 års RAC-Rally kom Opels Rallye Kadett tvåa, trea och fyra, med ett Opel-team bestående av svenskarna Ove Eriksson, Lillebror Nasenius och Janne Henriksson i spetsen. Hemma i Sverige blev det flera SM-segrar i både Grupp 1 och 2. En ikon inom rallysporten var född. Sammanlagt tillverkade Opel 103?622 exemplar av Kadett Coupé. Låt dig dock inte luras av det känns som att relativt många Kadett Coupéer tillverkades. Enligt uppgifter från transportstyrelsen återstår det under 500 exemplar i Sverige av Kadett Coupé, där Rallye inräknas. Mindre än 300 exemplar av dessa har 1900 cc motorn. Så vill man ha en Rallye Kadett är tiden knapp.
