"Buick's Opel Kadett", càd l'Opel Kadett de Buick. Pas la Buick Opel Kadett...

Agreed...Athough the cars were sold through 'Buick-Opel' dealerships in the USA, they were Opel Kadetts.

They used the Buick name to help advertise the Kadett, but they were only ever badged as 'Opel'.

Well so, what we have here is the same Kadett used twice and repainted in red, note the same dent in the hood and see that the door is in its inside blue when the car hits it, so it is the same car.

You can see, how badly the red paintwork was made, other parts are dropped over and over. A 10-minute-job for one member of the crew.

Probably their budget was so low, taht the couldn't afford to crash two of these "high-performance"-cars :LOL:

DAF555 wrote Opel was sold at Buick dealers from the late fifties under the Opel brand. The Kadett [B] of 1966-67 models had the same front as the european cars, and from 1968 models they used the Olympia front. I don´t think the Olympia name was used in the US, but I´m not sure.

antp wrote From what I see on DAF555's pictures, it is Opel the make. Buick's name is there only to reassure people. Especially visible on http://mclellansautomotive.com/photos/B33610.jpg

A little like the "Dacia Logan" with a "by Renault" added.

hiergehts wrote I can confirm that the Olympia name was never used on any US sold Opel and assume they used it's grille only to make the normal Kadett B look fancier for the USA. As DAF555 said, GM began importing Opels into the US market in the late 1950's (1957?) during the import car "boom" of that time to have something to sell against VW and Renault who were #1 & #2. And as antp has said, the "Buick"-Opel name was only there to reassure US buyers since it was a 'foreign' car (and they're always bad... :D ). Many of the cars were built at Opels factory in Bochum (Ruhrgebiet) in Germany.

yoda wrote Ads referred to "Buick's Opel Kadett", less as a reassurance than to make sure people knew where to buy one...

Repainted in red and used later in the same chase, when the Pontiac hit the door it almost hit a filming crew guy.
