1968 Opel Kadett L Shooting Brake

This 1968 Opel Kadett L 2-door station wagon, also known as a shooting brake, has undergone a detailed restoration and is a multiple award winner, having taken home many first places, best in the 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. However, 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.
