Apart from modifications to the front axle and tank of the Opel Kadett C2 based on its predecessor Kadett B, was thus equipped with longitudinal engine and rear wheel drive. Triple9 has made this very much 'still very harmonious, very timeless styled car a very nice plastic model that accurately reproduces the lines of the model: covers the appearance of here with optional 2 and 4 doors equipped and the facelift version C2 corresponding model perfect with the 1977 presented in this form model.

The presented Cadet C2 is to have in 3 colors and could serve as a basis for a collection that is based on the success of cars of the 1970s.
