And here comes a set of pictures of a custom -58.
The pictures are from a motormagazine 1983. The story was named "Opel
Body Building".
The guy "Thomas Karlsson" got first price in the class of "Originals".
He was at that time 20 years old but he bought
the car when he was 16. He dissambled it twice restoring every part.
The article also says that middle-aged men started to moan and got tears
in their eyes seeing that car.
Unfortunately the text under the enginepictues has been mixed up, as you
can see. And the Lowrider is a P2, nes pas?

I don't know if  Thomas  Karlsson  still  is the owner of  the -58
