Dash-Cam Outtake: Opel Rekord P1

Recently I’ve been filing up with dash-cam captures, and it’s about time I shared them with you. I’ll start from the most orange of oranges.


This one is extremely rare in Israel, and maybe the only one of its kind in the country:

As this was the first and only time I’ve seen a Rekord P1 in Israel (to be perfectly honest, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen one of these at all before), it would come as no surprise that I’d mistaken it for something else, although I wasn’t far off – I recognized it for a Vauxhall at first.

License plate tells me this car was imported into Israel back when new, and because it has five digits, it must be of a 1957-1959 vintage (Israel turned to six digit plates in 1960) This makes it one of the few, if not an only survivor of its kind. So no further photos available from me, sorry.
