"It's been a long time since you've seen an Opel wagon on the road, the vast majority of them have rusted away. So this is a specimen well worth caring for and nurturing for the future."


This car was bought new by a farmer in Osby, who was very careful about it and was mostly stored in his garage. When it was purchased he paid extra to get it Tectyltreated “Rust protection” before delivery and that’s saved it from rust. When he died a local car dealer took over Opel and parked it in his collection. The current owner has owned for a year and doesn’t have the time to enjoy it.

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 moden var tekniken desto äldre. 1500-motorn var i stort sett identisk med den som satt i Opel Olympia 1937.

For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends.
