Auction Watch: 1967 Opel Kadett | Mecum Auctions

The Kadett is special in its ordinaryness.


Rarely is such an ordinary car so special. This example of the mighty Kadett wagon is a pre-production test mule containing the prototype examples of the “American” parts. While I would expect such vehicles to be museumed or destroyed this one become the property of a relative of the head engineer. The description points out the oddities and the bits and pieces that don’t quite fit.

I have special attention for this car because my wife is a former Kadett owner and wouldn’t mind owning another. The problem is that Opel fans are mostly insane and expect other people to value their little cars well beyond their true value. It will be interesting to see how many Opel fans are among the more mainstream collectors.
