Opel 1200 Running Gear

Postby HC Fairley » Mon Mar 25, 2019 1:00 pm

I was given an engine and gearbox from an Opel last weekend as spares for my viva. Does anyone know if the Opel box will bolt to the Vauxhall 1256 without much fuss ?

not similar at all.
One odd fact however is that vauxhall used Opel flywheel and clutch in some models. I dont know why really.
