"Has been in rust free climate in north Sweden. No registration papers with the car.
Sold for parts."


Bilen har haft samma ägare i 15 år och är ett avstannat projekt. Handlingar saknas. Säljs med enbart kvitto. Ch nummer KW-55- 025588.

För 15 år sedan plockades bilen isär för lackering. Lampor, stötfångare handtag, grill och så vidare följer med. Motor och växellåda sitter i. Motorn går runt för hand. Bilen har inga rosthål och är av ovanlig modell så det är en jättefin kaross att använda och idag sällsynt ovanlig modell.
Har klarat sig från allvarlig rost då den hela tiden varit i torrt klimat i norra norrland.
För mer info ring vårt ombud Ronny Petterson på tel: 0705-881711.

Facts about the model

Opel Olympia Rekord was a two-door family car which replaced the Opel Olympia in March 1953. Innovations included the strikingly modern Ponton format body-work incorporating numerous styling features from the United States and large amounts of chrome decoration both on the outside and on the inside.
The car was offered till 1957. Unusually, at least in European terms, the manufacturer followed the example of General Motors in Detroit by applying an annual facelift. There was a new front grill every year along with other detailed modifications to the trim. The policy of annual facelifts ensured plenty of publicity, and the car was a commercial success, achieving second place in the West German sales charts year after year, beaten to the top slot only by the much smaller, less costly and at this time seemingly unstoppable Volkswagen. Around 580,000 Olympia Rekords were produced. Opel boss Edward Zdunek justified the annual facelifts with the explanation that they gave customers the possibility of "sozialen Differenzierung" (social differentiation). Nevertheless, commentators also noted that the Detroit inspired annual face-lift disadvantaged owners because it depressed second hand values for the Olympia Rekord. The Olympia Rekord set a pattern that Opel would follow for many decades, providing a lot more car for the money than most competitor manufacturers.
