The Commodore was based on the Rekord body, and with a 6-cyl engine, thus a more high performance
and luxury model. The Commodore lived as 3 series over the years and was somewhat a successor to the earlier Rekord
A/B 6-cyl models but with added luxury and comfort. The A-series was based on the Rekord C bodies and appeared
in both 4-d sedan and Coupe variants.Then the B model (see brief pictures below of a GS/E coupé) and finally
the C based on the Rekord E. A final successor was the first Opel Senator model, somewhat in the same tradition.
The final Senator was more like the Omega, a different animal. Commodore's often became popular with young people
when price and thus condition had come down.
Few cars survived the sporty treatment, and fine restored cars today are not cheap.
Hmm, not a very good summary of such a great range of cars.
The Commodore section really needs much more material
to justify the greatness of these cars. You are welcome to contribute
scanned material and descriptions of Commodore's.
If you can borrow us brochures we can scan on a high quality scanner
and will then promptly return the material. I especially need pictures similar to the Coupe picture shown at the Swedish Coupe Club web site, aint that great stuff.. And all that GS/E material...
More will be added when we get access to suitable material and data.
If you have material to contribute regarding the Commodore models, for example about the Commodore A series (brochure material, technical/historical data, etc., feel free to contact us so we can make it available here.
