I highly doubt that this was a Diplomat A Coupe. They made only 347 of them between February 1965 until July 1967.
I don't think there's more than a dozen or so left.
Ahh. didnt get that tid bit.. no it was a 4 door and must be a B as well.

Doh.. I do think I have seen an A in the US somewhere though.. maybe it was an Admiral.

It was a Admiral A.. in the desert at Opels Unlimited..

Wonder if you cloned it as a Diplomat A coupe what it would be worth..

Maybe with a LS motor :)

Yea, but then you couldn't use those cool cast aluminum Opel valve covers that fit the SBC.

Karl-Thomas Neumann's Diplomat Coupe was at the Russelsheim museum when I visited back in May
