Party Like It’s 1989 Week: ’89 Opel Senator B CD 3.0i


Want something plush for highway cruising but not a particular fan of any of the American modern classics? Well, why not try on what GM’s Europe arm had on for size at the end of the 1980s, the Opel Senator. The Senator B was a long-wheelbase version of the Opel Omega, a car that would later go on to form the basis for the Cadillac Catera. The Senator was laid to rest after the 1993 model year, as Opel decided the new Omega would give the company enough range in the luxury segment. This Senator for sale in Northwest Germany is a top level CD model with the 3.0 liter inline-6.

Sure, this Opel isn’t going to capture the imagination of a lot of our readers who swoon after fast Porsches or dream of that Mercedes in the garage, but it is relatively cheap compared to a lot of the vehicles featured on GCFSB and offers a rather cool and unique alternative to other large sedans that were sold here over the course of the 1980s and 1990s. One interesting bit of automotive trivia is that the coach built Bristol Blenheim 3 borrowed the rear lights from this very Opel. One thing worth clarifying with this car would be whether air conditioning wasn’t originally fitted or if, in fact, it just needs to be repaired. If you could bargain this car down a bit, you would certainly gain a few curious stares on these shores.

    No A/C and a 3 speed!

    The tail lights look like they’re from a 1990 Corolla.
