1977-82 Opel Rekord panel van

There surely can't be a big number of these Rekord vans left around anywhere... Only 30,000 were sold worldwide, over thirty years ago. Most would surely have done massive mileage and rusted into the ground. Called Kasten-Lieferwagen (delivery van) in German.

 

Anyway, very nice to see this well used example in the city of Corinth, Greece. Very similar to our Vauxhall Carltons, these, although I don't believe the Carlton was ever sold in van style.

 

Proper old type of vehicle, which you just don't come across in the UK. Great to see it still being used!

 

Sadly there are no Rekord vans left in the UK, the last being disposed of in 2007.
