Made in Spain, the hatch brings under the hood a gasoline engine 1.4 EFI that yielded 60 bhp and 11.1 lb.-ft. of torque at the time, although the performance may have deteriorated over time.

The model found in the free market comes equipped with radio with cassette player, windows and power locks, wiper and rear defogger, but brings no air conditioning (only the nostalgic “hot air”). For about R $ 15 thousand is possible to find other more stuffed and new options, but is unlikely to be an authentic Opel as maintained.
