This is a 1965 - 1967 Opel Diplomat Coupe. Based on the also luxury Kapitän/Admiral models from Opel it features more chrome, more leather and more power than its cousins. The power plant was a 327 cui Corvette engine for Opel's (then) mother in the USA. 347 units where built at Karman in Osnabrück/Germany.

As Bill says... "GMish". I started looking at Acadians but the rear lights and haunches weren't quite right, and then got onto a Holden coupe prototype which had a picture of the Diplomat in the article... Nice looking car!

With its somewhat GM look (with touches of Ford and Chrysler and even AMC), it'd be a fun one to have stateside, lightly modded (de-badge and add mags and redline tires), take to shows, and befuddle all the 'experts' as to what it is.  B)

That is what I was thinking. To me it looked like an Australian version of some American make. But is ended up being an European "relative".  It definitely has lots of "American flavor".
