Opel Kapitän 1939-1951

This page is devoted to the Opel Kapitän that first left the factory in Russelheim in 1939

The Kapitän laid bare to show off the fact that it did not have a sparate chassis.

VW Transporter (Bulli) Type 2

VW Transporter (Bulli) Type 2

A bit off-topic perhaps, but the transporter, or Bulli as it is known in Germany, has gained such cult status, that I had to include it here. The Dutch VW importer, Ben Pon, is said to have made the first sketches for the Transporter.

The Kapitän was the successor to the Super Six. It was available in varous body styles, although the 4-door saloon was the standard. The factory also offered a 2-door version and a convertible.

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.
