It was slightly larger all round than its predecessor, rom which it inherited most of its engines. The design of the Rekord C has been characterized by some enthusiasts as “erotic” on account of the “hip-curve” on the lower window-line ahead of the C-pillar, hich reminded some folks of a Coca cola bottle and so gave rise to this becoming known as the “Coke-Bottle line” Rekord. The car proved to be a solid hit with the public: it was reliable, oomy and pleasant to look at with its coke-bottle line.
