In 1967, Opel presented its first Commodore as an up-market variant of the Rekord C on which it was based. The styling was altered slightly, the trim level upgraded a little, but it was under the bonnet where the real difference lay: The Commodore was available only with inline 6-cylinder engines, originally with 2.2 and 2.5 litres of capacity. The first generation, known as Commodore A, was replaced in 1972 by the Commodore B when Opel rolled out a new Rekord model. Likewise, in 1977 the Commodore C closely followed the Rekord E. While body styles of the first two generations comprised two- and four-door sedans as well as a coupé, the latter was dropped for the Commodore C, which instead received a station wagon variant in 1979.
The Commodore C was sold in the UK as Vauxhall Viceroy, it was also manufactured in South Africa as Chevrolet Commodore, and it became the basis for the Holden Commodore in Australia, where the Commodore name lives on until today.
On the German market, the Commodore never enjoyed a huge sales success, which is why it was phased out in 1982, while the Rekord E continued on until 1986.
