A B-Kadett is in many ways the cheapest option Driving an H license plate car with unadulterated sixties flair. The simple technology with the cast-iron triple-bearing “sewing machine” motor is easy to maintain and repair.
The maintenance costs of the frugal compact are extremely low. But above all, the purchase price is moderate. Our candidate is a late 73 model in contemporary pastel yellow for a fair price. It is a basic four-door with the almost invisible 71 styling retouches.
The alarmed Kadett enthusiast shouldn't expect too much from this offer, because really good Kadett B sedans often cost around twice as much. The paintwork and interior of our Kadidaten are in good, neat condition, the technology works perfectly like Opel.
D Unfortunately, on closer inspection, smaller ones show up Rust nests in the area of the sills, the rear wheel arches and the end tips. In front of the H license plate, you have to partially weld and paint a little.
- Pro: Lots of 60s charm, well-kept original condition, few km, good substance
- Cons: Partial welding and painting work necessary. H-certificate is still pending
- Conclusion: Opportunity for do-it-yourself screwdrivers, ideal object for novice screwdrivers
