Opel Rekord A convertible, 1 of 30


Autovisie is always looking for used cars for the enthusiast and that’s why you go through the listings of the sales site Gasmetaal.nl. This time we got an Opel Rekord A Cabriolet.

Connoisseurs will immediately think: “convertible? Opel never produced a roofless version of the Rekord A. That’s true, but roofless versions have been sold anyway.

It is not original from the Opel factory

Not Opel itself, but the builders of the organization Deutsch developed the Opel Rekord convertible based on the coupé. Often, not only the roof was repaired, but there was also a small improvement in the interior. For example, more chic skin with additional chrome details. After all, it was one of the most expensive records you could buy at the time.

This is because the roof of the coupé had to be removed, the paint repainted and reinforcements placed under the lower plate to improve torsional stiffness. A car without a roof is often less rigid due to the lack of roof construction. In part due to the price, of around 10,000 German Marks (5,113 euros), it is estimated that only 30 Opel Rekord A convertibles were built by Deutsch.

An Opel Rekord a Sedan with a 1700 cc engine cost about 8300 guilders (3766 euros) in the Netherlands at the time.

Oily six cylinder

The Opel Rekord A comes with three different powertrains. There were four-cylinder displacements of 1500 and 1700 cc and a six-cylinder 2.6 liter from the Opel Kapitän was available. This engine is good for 100 hp and ensures that the Rekord can drive 160 km / h.

Opel Rekord Deutsch convertible as an event

Autovisie finds the Opel Rekord A convertible with a good six-cylinder and automatic transmission. The car is a 1965 and therefore has been replaced by Deutsch. The seller says the car has been fully restored. The interior is red and the leather looks like new. The rest of the interior also looks very clean.

Odometer reads 1063 and is expected to not reset to original odometer reading after restoration. The car is not yet registered.

The exclusive Opel Rekord A carries a hefty price tag. The seller asks 76,500 euros to the old man. A lot of money for Rekord, but then you have a very unique classic.
