Opel Rekord

The Opel Rekord was a large family car/executive car which was built in eight generations by the German car manufacturer Opel. Between Summer 1953 and 1986 approximately ten million were sold.


The Rekord name evolved into the main name of the model; at first the name was used in close relationship with the Opel Olympia name, which pre-dated the Rekord but was also re-instated in a separate model in 1967.
The various generations are described here with the manufacturer's, or other commonly used designations such as "Rekord P I" or "Rekord B". The car was not marketed with these additional appellations.

The Opel Rekord P1 had a slightly larger, more modern body with wraparound windscreen and rear screen, introducing to Germany the latest American fashion of two-tone paintwork.[1]
The standard model was sold as the Opel Olympia Rekord, while a reduced specification version was marketed simply as the Opel Olympia and widely known, less formally, as the "Bauern-Buick" (Peasant's Buick).[1]
A new base version with an 1196 cc engine appeared in 1959 badged more simply as the Opel 1200, and replacing the Opel Olympia.
A semi-automatic gearbox ("Olymat") became available for model year 1959. Initially the car retained the 1488 cc, 45 PS (33 kW; 44 hp) of its predecessor: this was complemented by a 1680 cc, 55 PS;L engine[1] for model year 1960.

The Rekord P II grew in size, if not in wheelbase, and received a totally new body that did away with wraparound windows. It was available in several body versions: 2-door and 4-door saloon, a 3-door estate ("Caravan") plus delivery van, a pick-up, and a convertible. From August 1961 on, a works coupé became available, and in June 1962 a more luxurious "L" version was added with a new top engine of 1700 cc "S" and a higher compression ratio. The latest versions had an optional four-speed gearbox.

While the Rekord B

Consisted of only a mild facelift compared to the A, it received Opel's new, more oversquare four-cylinder CIH (cam in head) engines (1500, 1700 S, 1900 S). The CIH engines were used in all subsequent Rekord generations until 1986, when Rekord was replaced by the Opel Omega. The 2,600 cc six-cylinder engine remained unchanged. The line-up was identical to the Rekord A.

With 1,276,681 units built, the Rekord C was the most successful Rekord so far. The car proved to be a solid hit with the public: it was reliable, roomy and pleasant to look at with its coke-bottle line.
The range consisted of the two- and four-door saloon, two- and (new) four-door estate, delivery van, and two-door hardtop coupé with 1500, 1700, 1700 S, 1900 S fours or (until 1968) a 2200 six. Very short-lived (1967 only) was a special taxi version on a longer wheelbase (113 inch) with division, that sold for DM 9,950; with it, Opel tried to get a foothold in the German taxi market, then (as now) dominated by Mercedes-Benz. Again, Karl Deutsch of Cologne offered a convertible version in limited numbers.
There existed several variations of the Rekord C, as well as version made under different names in different countries.
A variation on the Rekord C was the Rekord Sprint coupé (1967–71) with driving lights, sport steel wheels, sport stripes and a sporty interior; the Sprint received exclusively the so-called 1900 H engine with two double-barrel carburettors, good for 106 PS (78 kW; 105 hp) and 108 mph (174 km/h).
The former Rekord L-6 was replaced by the new Commodore A, a slightly disguised and better-equipped Rekord C available as two- and four-door sedan and hardtop coupé with six-cylinder engines only.
It was during the life of this model (in fact 1967–70) that the Opel Olympia name was revived, but in a separate, smaller car which was based on the period Opel Kadett.
Due to the launch of the smaller Ascona in September 1970, the Rekord was marketed as an executive car rather than a large family car.


The Ranger was a Rekord-based range built at the Opel Continental plant in Antwerp, Belgium, for the overall European market. Styling was similar to the Rekord, although the Ranger had a four-headlamp grille setup, similar to the Vauxhall Victor FD range of the time. Initially, there were two models: Ranger 130 and Ranger 153. In 1970 additional models were announced, being the Ranger 1900 and Ranger 2500, and a "SS" variant, based on the Ranger 153.
There was also a South African Ranger, built in General Motors South Africa's plant Port Elizabeth. Known as 'South Africa's Own Car', it featured a springbok logo on its grille, and was also produced as a station wagon.

Other markets

The Rekord C was built Chevrolet Opala and Comodoro in Brazil from 1968 on, available in saloon, coupé and estate forms and featuring either Chevrolet's 2.5 L four or 4.1 L inline-six. These models received several facelifts and remained in production until about 1992.
A Rekord C coupé was locally built in South Africa as a Ranger SS during the 1970s.[2]
Prices in Germany (1966): DM 7,630 to 9,560; Sprint (1967): DM 9,775.
The Rekord C was the only Opel model to ever be marketed in Mexico as Opel; Corsa, Astra and others were sold under Chevrolet during the 1990s and first decade of the 21st century.

About 1.1 million Rekord Ds were made. Because the name Rekord D was easily mistaken to connote a diesel-powered car, the name Rekord II was often used in sales literature. The first prototype was ready in 1971. The engine types available were 1897 cc, 1698 cc and 2068 cc CIH (cam-in-head) four-cylinder gasoline engines. There was also a diesel version with an engine whose displacement was initially 2.1 litres and afterwards reduced to 2.0 litres. The diesel engine was higher than gasoline variants, so diesel model hoods have a raised midsection. The six-cylinder variant of this car is called the Commodore B. Transmissions available were standard four-speed manual with either floor or steering-column shifter and TH-180 automatic transmission. The body is of unitary construction. Body types available were four-door saloon, four-door estate and two-door coupé. There was also a variant called "Berlina" with more luxurious interior and wheels.
The Rangers were also transferred to this new generation, with the dropping of the 130 and 153 and the adding of a 1.7 L engine. In 1972, the line-up consisted of the base Ranger 1700, the mid-level Ranger 1900, and the top-of-the-line Ranger 2500. In 1974, a 2.8L engine was introduced to the Ranger family. However, by that time the Rangers were unpopular, and were discontinued after the 1976 model year. Most of these were sold exclusively in Continental Europe, especially the Benelux region.
South Africa used this body type for their Chevrolet 2500, 3800 and 4100 series. They looked visually almost identical but had the Chevrolet 2500 (4-cylinder) or 3800 and 4100 (6-cylinder) engines installed. They were available as four-door saloon or estate. The six-cylinder versions could be differentiated from the "fours" as they had four round headlights as opposed to the two rectangular units.

These cars were also assembled in Iran (before revolution) from 1974 till 1977 under the local "Chevrolet Royale / or Chevrolet Iran" brand-name by Iran General Motors. The two models were 2500 and 2800 with 2.5L and 2.8L, respectively.The production of these vehicles ended in 1977 when the assembly line started producing the Chevrolet Nova, Buick Skylark, and Cadillac Seville cars until 1987.

The E model can be subdivided into Rekord E1 (1977–82) and Rekord E2 (1982–86). Over 1.4 million units were made. The Rekord E was available as a two- or four-door sedan, and as a three- or five-door Caravan (station wagon). In some markets where the tax structure was suitable, a three-door van version was also available.

Three-door Rekord 

E1 Caravan
A version of the EI was sold by Vauxhall in the United Kingdom from 1979 as the Carlton, which featured the distinct slanted front end shared with the Chevette and Cavalier. The Carlton quietly succeeded the (by then long since discontinued) Vauxhall Victor FE, and was joined by the short lived Vauxhall Viceroy, a rebadged Commodore C. In the UK both models were outsold by the Ford Granada.
In 1982 the facelifted "E2" version was released. Of a generally smoother appearance, this version featured redesigned, more aerodynamical front and rear ends, and a reshuffling of engines and equipment levels. The E2 Vauxhall Carltons were distinguishable from Opel Rekords only by their badging, with no sheet metal differences. Models sold in the UK had 2.0 L petrol and 2.3 L diesel engines in base, Berlina and Berlina S trim levels, and were all available with either a four-speed manual or a three-speed automatic transmission.
In mainland Europe a host of different engines were available, ranging from a 1.7 L to a 2.2 L petrol and also including a 2.0 L diesel in the early years for countries such as Italy, where larger engines were heavily taxed. The diesel engines were taller and necessitated a distinctive bonnet with a large hump in it. Usually equipped with the larger 2.3 litre engine, the diesel Rekords were particularly popular in France, Italy, and the Benelux countries. At the Geneva Motor Show in March 1984, a turbocharged version of the venerable 2.3 litre diesel was introduced, going on sale a few months later. This was Opel's first turbocharged vehicle.[4] Power was increased from 65 to 86 PS (48 to 63 kW), meaning that the car performed as well as some petrol versions at the time. Other mechanic differences were slim, limited to better cooling measures (including an oil cooler) and other detail measures.The turbodiesel, only available with a five-speed manual, was also offered in the luxurious "CD" trim.

Other names, other markets

The Rekord EI was the basis of the original 1978 Holden VB Commodore. However, to cope with Australian conditions it was strengthened substantially and used the Senator's nose (like the Opel Commodore) to accommodate the Holden straight-6 and V8 engines.
In South Africa the model was sold as a Chevrolet until 1982, when it was rebadged as an Opel. South African Rekords originally received a small bore version of GM's venerable Iron Duke four-cylinder engine, of 2,320 cc and 90 PS (66 kW) at 4,800 rpm.[6] The facelifted EII versions received the 1,979 cc four as used in Europe, with 100 PS (74 kW) (110 PS/81 kW for the fuel-injected version).[7] Delta Motor Corporation, which bought out GM's South African subsidiary after it divested from the country in 1986, produced the EII model until the early 1990s. Later South African Rekords featured the Opel badge above the grille, similar to the smaller Kadett.
A version of the Rekord, known as the Royale, was produced by Daewoo in South Korea, featuring the front end of the larger Senator. This should not be confused with the Vauxhall Royale, which was effectively a rebadged Opel Monza/Opel Senator. Bodies for the Daewoo came from Holden in Australia.

  1. Olympia Rekord (1953–57)

    O Opel Olympia Rekord foi lançado em 1953 em sucessão ao Opel Olympia, um carro datado de 1935, ainda antes da Segunda Guerra Mundial.
    Esta geração durou até 1957, após 580.000 veículos vendidos.

    Rekord P I (1957–60)

    A segunda geração do Rekord, chamada Opel Rekord P 1, possuía uma carroceria maior e um desenho mais moderno, mantendo-se em produção até 1960.

    Rekord P II (1960–63)

    Em seguida, o Opel Rekord P 2, crescia novamente em tamanho, mudando completamente o desenho da carroceria. Eram disponíveis várias versões, desde modelos básicos, completos e utilitários. Dentre elas: sedã 2-portas e 4-portas, station wagon 3-portas, pick-up, conversível e cupê.

     Rekord "A" (1963-65)

    Em Março de 1963, a Opel relançava o Rekord, com um chassi maior (2.620 m entre eixos e 4.521 m de comprimento) e uma caroçaria mais moderna ao estilo do Chevrolet II de 1962. Manteve-se toda a linha de variações - coupé, sedan de 2 portas, sedan de 4 portas, caravana e van. As variações Caravan e Van (sem vidros laterais) apenas tinham 2 portas.
    As primeiras unidades ainda foram baptizadas de "Rekord R3" mas rapidamente a designação foi substituído. A partir de agora seria utilizado letras em ordem alfabética para distinguir os modelos Rekord sendo este modelo conhecido como "A". Apesar disto os Rekords ainda incluem a assinatura antiga "Olympia" nos guarda-lamas e porta-luvas.
    As motorizações ainda eram baseadas no motor Olympia de 1937 e chegaram ao ponto mais alto de desenvolvimento - 1.5 (1488cc com 55cv), 1.7 (1680cc com 60cv) e 1.7 S (1680cc com 67cv).
    A partir de Março de 1964 o motor L-6 com 2605cc, seis cilindros em linha e 100cv tornava-se opção mas este motor também não era novo pois era baseado no Super 6 de 1937. Este seria também o primeiro carro de passageiros opel a funcionar com 12V. Para caber o L-6 dentro do compartimento do motor foi necessário remover o radiador frontal e colocar um radiador de lado. Devido ao peso do motor e a falta de direcção assistida era difcíl de conduzir.
    Alguns extras eram disponibilizados como travões de disco a frente com duplo circuito e caixa de 4-velocidades com selector no chão (ao contrário do selector ao volante). Uma caixa de velocidades automatica e uma 3 velocidades semi-automatica também eram opções.

Entre Março de 1963 e Agosto de 1965 foram construídos 887,304 unidades do Rekord A.

Dados técnicos:

Rekord "B" (1965-66)

Em Julho de 1965 a Opel faz um pequeno "face-lift" ao Rekord. Este modelo será conhecido como o Rekord "B". 

O Rekord "B" seria apenas uma solução temporária ate estar pronto o novo Rekord C. Foi apenas construído 296,000 unidades entre Junho de 1965 e Junho de 1966.
Este modelo também serviu para introduzir a nova geração de motores Opel de 4 cilindros "CIH" (camshaft in head) que seriam utilizados no Rekord "C". Este modelo também recebeu como standard os travões de disco nas rodas da frente (opcional no Rekord A), uma nova caixa automatica Powerglide da GM e um diferencial mais largo. Este modelo também seria o ultimo Opel de passageiros a utilizar uma suspensão de molas de lâminas atrás. 

No exterior as grandes diferenças residem na parte de trás que utiliza os farolins do Opel Manta e na frente que recebeu uma nova grelha e farois retangulares. 

Rekord "C" (1967-71)

  1. Opel Rekord C
    O Rekord mais conhecido de todos, o Opel Rekord C, foi lançado em 1966 e provou ser um dos melhores carros de sua época: muito confiável, confortável e seu desenho era muito elegante. Seu estilo seguia o padrão 'garrafa de Coca-Cola', comum dos carros daquela época.
    A linha era composta de sedã, 'station-wagon' e cupê. Todas vinham com opção 2-portas e 4-portas. Foi um sucesso de vendas na Europa, atingindo a marca de 1.276.681 unidades do Rekord C fabricadas até 1971.
