1968 Opel Kadett L station wagon – Hemmings Find of the Day

Bonus, it’s rather Spartan inside and has that kickin’ luggage rack up top.  A four-speed, rear-wheel-drive, dual-carb two-door station wagon might seem like a unicorn these days, but that’s exactly how this 1968 Opel Kadett L station wagon for sale on is equipped. What’s more, it’s already been restored, so it’s now only necessary to track down parts from Germany for maintenance purposes. From the seller’s description:

This 1968 Opel Kadett L 2-door station wagon, also known as a shooting brake, has gone through a detailed restoration and is a multiple award winner, having taken home many first place, best in show, and people’s choice awards from various car shows. The Kadett is powered by a rebuilt 1.1 liter overhead valve 4-cylinder water-cooled engine with twin Solex 35 PDSI carburetors, and is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. Making 55-horsepower, the engine has been fully detailed and runs excellently. The odometer on the Kadett B shows 84,531 miles, which is believed to be original according to a running log supplied with the car, although given the restoration completed on the Kadett, it feels almost like a new car. The interior of the Kadett features a redone headliner and new carpet while the seat upholstery appears to be original and is in excellent shape. The original Kadett Delco AM radio is present and works, while under the dash a vintage Audiovox FM converter allows listeners to tune-in to their favorite modern radio stations. Additionally, the Kadett has all of its original German Sekurit glass, and under the hood it retains all the proper German parts from Bosch, Solex, SWF, and ATE. This Opel Kadett shows extremely well with its bright red exterior and black interior and is a stunning vehicle, as is evident by the awards it has won at numerous car shows
