|This advert viewed 455 times|
|This is a delightful and rare example of this very rare Opel 1.2 2 seater Cabrio or Tourer .|
Restored in the late 90's and having only covered 1200 miles since, she remains in excellent order throughout.
The car has full weather equipment and an easily foldable hood.
She has a large boot for added practicality.
Unusual to find one in RHD, if at all..especially in this condition.
The engine is a willing starter,smoke free and makes for a rewarding drive .
The Opel 1.2 Liter entered production in July 1931.Control over Opel had been purchased by General Motors in 1928 and the 1.2 model was developed in America.
The 1193 cc side-valve engine delivered a claimed maximum output of 22 PS (16 kW; 22 hp) Transmission of power to the rear wheels took place via a three speed manual gearbox without synchromesh. From 1933 a four speed option became available, although the three speed transmission continued to be the standard offering on the lower specification cars throughout. The brakes were controlled via a cable linkage and at this stage operated on the drive shaft.
This very car was featured in Classic Car Weekly in 1999,just after it was restored . Their findings were that it drove "more like a car from the fifties, than the thirties" , as the engine is certainly more powerful than British equivalents like the Morris Minor.
They also wrote than on the open road,there was a marked difference between this Opel compared to similar British cars,due to its longer gears,and is more suitabe for longer journeys
Their conclusion was that "this is a charming and desirable pre-war car,that had been lovingly restored,and is fun to drive,comfortable,stylish and probably reliable".
We can certainly concur with that...
