I saw a listing for a 65-66 Kadett a couple weeks ago on craigslist. It was reposted with a little more info a couple of days ago with .... 1965-1970 Kadett L by OPEL - $25 (oakland east)
1965-1970 Kadett L by OPEL
Hmmm??I do have a 1.9 that runs. Not sure if that would be a direct swap. I'm tempted but really not that interested in restoring a car that ... I know I'm shallow, but very few people would ever appreciate this car and it wouldn't be worth that much when done. So, if anyone is interested they can call.
I did read something interesting about the history of the Kadett on Wikipedia.
"Kadett A and B were technically simple cars whose task was to compete with the market leader, the Volkswagen Beetle. This lack of sophistication caused the USA car magazine Car and Driver to publish a highly critical test of the Kadett in 1968 featuring photos of the car in a junkyard. Reportedly, GM withdrew any ads from that magazine for several months as a consequence."
Name that year
Name that engine
