The first Admiral was introduced early in 1937 at the Berlin Motor Show, although production only got under way right at the end of the year, with just eight Opel Admirals being produced in 1937. It can be seen as an attempt to challenge luxury cars in the growing 3.5-litre class from HorchMercedes-Benz andMaybach. However, it came with a substantially lower price than the similarly sized and powered cars from these premium manufacturers, which combined with its generously proportioned but technically straightforward chassis to make it a favorite with builders of specialist car bodies. Unlike the slightly smaller unitary bodied Opel Kapitän introduced at the end of 1938, the Opel Admiral used a traditional separate chassis. It turned up with several different bespoke cabriolet and limousine bodies, and also provided the chassis, engine and running gear for various substantial ambulances.The basic Admiral was offered as a four door "Limousine" (sedan/saloon) with a manufacturer's listed price of 6,500 Reichmarks which was considered very competitive. There was also a four-door cabriolet listed at 7,000 Reichsmarks. Customers wishing to spend more money for more style could choose a 2 + 2 seater cabriolet bodied Admiral from the coach builder Hebmüller of Wuppertal, listed at 8,450 Marks. Hebmüller also offered an imposing six-seater "Pullman-Limousine" bodied Admiral with a lengthened passenger cabin (in return for a shortened luggage locker) listed at 8,580 Marks. Other coach-built versions included a 2+2 seater cabriolet bodied by Gläser of Dresden, a car described by one commentator as "dignified".
