The production of the last Diplomat is ceased in 1977. It is said, not so much because of the strong increased fuel pricesrather than due to a lack of acceptance in the luxury class. Now one tries it with a Rekord, upgraded through semi-trailing arm rear axle.
Believe it or not, between them is still the model Commodore C with Senator snout and Rekord tail, including its rear rigid axle. Remains reserved the most powerful engine then at least to the duo Senator/Monza. After all, the successor to the Rekord profits of this renewed, somewhat half-hearted attempt, to push forward in the luxury car class.
