GM T platform (1979)

General Motors reused the T-body designation beginning in 1979 with the front-wheel drive Opel Kadett D and the Vauxhall Astra Mk I. This version of the T-body also became widespread throughout the world, including South Africa, where the rear-wheel drive version was not originally available.[1]
