My own one-off Opels are pale in comparison with this one-of-a-kind '39 Street Rod Opel.

The Super Six ("Super 6" in German) was built in 1937 to 38, it was the second-largest Opel of it's time behind the Admiral. It had a 2.5 L inline-6-cyl engine with 55 HP at 3,500 rpm, and a top speed of 115-117 km/h (71-73 mph). Around 46,500 bodies were made as 4-door sedans, convertibles, and roadsters. The top of the line was the Convertible from German's coach builder "Gläser", only a handful of them were built.

This Street Rod in the Mecum Auction has the typical body lines from the Super 6, but everything else is non-Opel, including the Chevy SB engine.
I'm not going for it, but my own honest opinion is that this is a very beautifully made car. If this was a pre-war Kadett, I would be very interested in it!
I'm curious what the selling price might be, since I do not expect a large market for an Opel Street Rod in the USA. Most buyers in this car category want a Chevy/Ford/Chrysler.

I want to say that this Opel went up for sale years ago, but was bright red. I wish I kept some information on it, but had a similar look. That was before I paid attention to prewar Opels
