One of a Kind: 1964 Opel Kadett Wagon

Every custom car builder claims that his or her car is “one of a kind” but for the most part…they aren’t.  Custom trike Fiero..yup, dime-a-dozen, Subaru with a domestic V8 swap..common-as-muck, Porsche 968 with Mazda Rotary swaa….ok…that one was one-of-a-kind…but so is today’s next feature, because very few people in this world would dream of taking one of the few remaining intact Opel Kadett wagons and turning them into a V8 powered drag strip machine that you pilot from the back seat. Find this 1964 Opel Kadett here on eBay offered for $5,500 buy-it-now in Enfield, CT with 3 days to go.
