Doppelopelvergnügen – 1970 Opel Kadett Kombi

Well, who knew there would be two interesting Opels on the market at the same time. I won’t go into too much detail about this car, since it’s been covered here before, but to say that this car is the Kadett B with the same 106hp 1.9l four as the just-featured GT. With a similar power-to-weight ratio, rear-wheel-drive and a 4-speed manual, this car might actually be kind of a hoot to drive. Find it here in Tampa, FL for $1200. For even more oddball points, you’ll notice it’s a wagon with hipster-approved fake-wood applique.

The three-door wagon was one of a myriad of body styles, including 2-door and 4-door fastback variants. The seller states this car needs some work, and judging by the modern tach in the Opel and the car with chromed out dubs in the background, you might also count on undoing some of his work. However, it doesn’t look like he got too far, so the car still looks fairly intact. Since the car is from Florida, I would definitely count on rust, but it doesn’t look all that bad. Body damage is also there in the right rear, but this can go on hold while you get the car running and cleaned up. Definitely worth a look if you’re in the Tampa area.
