This Opel Kadett A is from 1965 and its new destination is a small-scale museum in the northern region. In the 60s, Opel was really able to compete with the successful VW Beetle, because the Opel Kadett A became a sales hit due to its lower price and larger and attractive design.

  1. They have probably looked wrong, according to the RDW this Kadett also has an empty weight of 669 kilograms, so ready to drive 769. Which museum is this car in?
    As a type reference I am always interested.

  2. Small mistake, I have here the registration certificate of the 18-71-AX in front of me and it really says 769 kg as curb weight.
    960 Kg is really 200 kg too much.
