1975 Opel Kadett 1200S Caravan 1.2 from Sweden


This was a bargain!


No big problems...

The front fenders are made of rust (typical Opel problem), and fixed with plastic padding. But if you can weld...

The rear left safety belt needs replacement (it is a wagon, and I can't fold down the rear seat, because the belt is stuck).

The rear shock absorbers are worn.

General Comments:

This was a good car for what I paid... (In USD, about $40). It runs good. The engine doesn't sound like an Opel...

It is sad that Kadett got front wheel drive in 1980, because the older models are a joy to drive!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
