Chevrolet do Brasil 1970



General Motors do Brasil was founded in 1925, but remained for decades pure assembly operation. Only in 1957 began the in-house production of trucks. In 1964 the Station Wagon C-1416 appeared as a modification of the smallest truck. Since the end of 1968, General Motors do Brasil is now also involved in the construction of its own passenger car. The only model so far is the Chevrolet Opala, of which already 26,000 units left the factory in 1969. This car is nothing more than a modified Opel Rekord, optionally with a four- or a six-cylinder engine from Chevrolet. There is also a model Opala E with increased engine power, sporty appearance and luxurious features.
