Opel Kapitän 1947-1950

The 1947 Opel Kapitän was a roomy six-cylinder saloon based on the 1939 design. In fact the major external difference was its round headlamps (the pre-war models had angular ones). Bumpers, hubcaps and 'zeppelin' were also of a slightly different design. Opel no longer offered two-door or convertible models. Although designated the 1947 model, production didn't actually commence until October 1948.
