Something from Down Under?

The VW T1 should be listed, as it's a fully trimmed "Samba"

In my actual classic car magazine was written in an article about the Rover P6, that the Vauxhall Victor/Ventora was officially offered in WEst Germany. Didn't know that before. :think:
But it wasn't said, how big the amount of sold cars was.

I also think this VW van should be listed. :)

@ingo - came across a forum thread recently that several Sunbeam Tigers were sold in Germany to UK and US servicemen (BAOR and whatever the US equivalent) with an officially recognised dealership within the support network, and offering both RHD and LHD as desired; presumably most of these were taken back home after tours of duty finished and did not stay in D. Maybe those Vauxhalls were similar BAOR offerings, and not for general sale??

No idea, it was just a single sentence in the short comment about the rivals of the P6 on the UK-market (Citroen DS, Triumph 2000 and the Victor/Ventora).

P.S. That the Sunbeam Alpine was officially imported here, I've read before. I think with "officially imported" or "offered" they mean the availiability for Germans, not for foreign servicemen.
Still nowadays the business with them is stricty separated, for technical reasons (the cars for US-GIs are not according the EU-laws) and -mainly!- for tax reasons.

If a child drew a car's license plate-it would look like those from Hong Kong.

In theory Vauxhall Motors could designate a single dealer or number of dealers in Germany or any other export country to sell its products, in fact competition between GM manufacturers was somewhat encouraged. Although I don't know if it happened in Germany it would have ended when integration with Opel occured at about the time of the Opel based Vauxhall Astra was introduced. Presumably if your source is correct some Vauxhall Victor/Ventora [FE] models were sold in Germany but using only one or a few dealers.

Very probable. It's even nowadays in the same way with US-GM-cars. It depends on the single Opel-dealer, if he has an interest (maybe, if he is allowed to) in ordering and selling them.
About Vauxhalls -especially the Chevette and Bedford CF- I've read, that the most Opel-dealers avoided to have them in their stock - because for those cars they had to purchase inch-measured tools.

The Chevette (UK version of the T-car) and the Victor, VX, Ventora FE were designed as metric not imperial-inch (the CF was probably mixed imperial/metric but primarly metric).

The USA version of the T-car was completely re-engineered (backwards) to US inch standards. This resulting in some very odd sizes of "inch" bolts.
