I bought this 1959 Opel Rekord a few months ago for $200. The previous owner said that the motor had been completely rebuilt in the early 80ís except that the old timing gear was used. It stripped out shortly thereafter and has been parked ever since. I have been researching buying parts for this motor, but have also been told about possibly putting a later model Opel 1.9 in it. It has a manual 3 speed transmission on the steering column. Right now my plans are to get it running, and eventually put a 327 in it.
