History of the Opel Admiral

The Opel Admiral has a storied place in automotive history, beginning in the 1930s as a luxury car that symbolized prestige and comfort. The original Admiral, produced from 1937 to 1939, was a testament to Opel's engineering prowess during the pre-war era. It offered advanced features for its time and was powered by a 3.6-liter inline-six engine that delivered a smooth ride, although production was cut short by World War II.

After a very long hiatus, the Admiral name was revived in 1964 with the introduction of the Admiral A, which continued the tradition of providing a luxurious driving experience. The Admiral A featured a range of six-cylinder engines, from a 2.6-litre to a 2.8-litre, and later a 4.6-litre V8 following the growing demand for performance.

The Admiral B was added to the Admiral line-up in 1969, bringing further refinements. It featured a modernised body design, enhanced suspension, and an improved interior. This model continued with six-cylinder engines and maintained the option for a V8, catering to those who valued performance alongside luxury.

Throughout its production, the Admiral remained a symbol of luxury within the Opel range, competing with other high-end European cars but often at a more accessible price point. It was favoured for its spacious interiors and solid performance. Notably, the Admiral series saw several facelifts and technical improvements during its run in the '60s and '70s, including upgraded braking systems and the introduction of fuel injection technology, illustrating Opel's commitment to innovation.

The Admiral's production run eventually ended in 1977, but the model left behind a legacy of luxury and performance that reflected the evolving tastes and technologies of the mid-20th century. It remains a beloved classic among in-the-know luxury car enthusiasts and collectors today.
