Hello fellow Opel enthusiasts,

My name is Tim and I am the owner of a '69 Kadett Rallye which is my pride and joy. It has just been painted and now I am attaching all of the trim. I have rebuilt all of the suspension and the 1.9 engine.

Look s good, always great to get another Kadett Rallye out there. What color did you go with? Doesn't look like a Rallye color, but a standard Kadett cream color?

Kadett Rallye

Welcome to the site. Good looking car you have there. Our Opel club is here in Wichita. We have about 8 active members and between us we have 11-12 GT's and 2-4 Kadetts. Would be great to meet you and see your car. The numbers vary between running cars, in progress cars, and donner cars. ??

Kieth,
Thanks. The color code is "Sun Yellow" and is the original color of the car. It is a true Rallye car, per the VIN, so maybe it wasn't as common as the other choices. I'm a bit of a purist and wanted it to look original.

BButler,
Thanks. I will definitely keep an eye out for any get together you guys have and make a trip down. I'm looking forward to showing off the car.
Regardless of whether an Opel is a work in progress or fully restored, it's always great to see them on the road. I still need to get my headliner in so I can install the front and rear glass, then I can get the carpet installed. I'm moving from Colorado back to Kansas in two weeks so won't be getting anything done until after the move.

Great Kadett Rallye. Seems the body is in good condition. That is what we dreaming of in Germany. Here we have always problems with rust.

Greetings, Chris

Been awhile since I've been on this site and thought I'd post an updated pic of the Kadett from the 50th Opel GT run a few years back. My brother's '70 Kadett is in front of mine.

Thanks, opelbits. I see you are out of St. Louis. Actually, I'm a "Missouri boy" myself having spent my early years in Waynesville, Mo back in the 70's and 80's.
