1960 Opel Rekord P2.jpg

Opel Rekord P2. 1960–3 (prod. 787,684). 2- and 4-door saloon, 3-door estate, 2-door coupé, 2-door convertible, 2-door pick-up, 3-door van. F/R, 1488, 1680 cm³ (I4 OHV). No Olympia name this time (at least officially), as Rekord spun off into its own line. Larger body with cleaner, less “American”, lines, though same wheelbase as predecessor. No more dog-leg A-pillar, and wider front doors. Rare convertible by Autenrieth. Prewar engines, with three-speed gearbox for 1500, and four-speed for 1700. Semi-automatic available for most models. Said to have inspired the Toyopet Corona (T20).
