Opel Kapitän 1951-1953

In 1951 the Kapitän was modernised and given both front and rear end treatment. Technically it remained pretty much the same as the previous model.

Opel Kapitän 1954-1957

A completely new design appeared in 1954. The old-fashioned looks had given way to the fashionable ponton shape. It still had the same 6-cylinder 2473 cc engine, although now Opel managed to squeeze 68 hp out of it, giving the car a top speed of 138 km/h.

Opel Kapitän 1958-1959

The Opel Kapitän 1958-1959 P 2.5 model was even wider and lower than its predecessor. The new styling was similar to that of the new Rekord. It was built only from June 1958 to June 1959. In addition to the base model there was an "L" version. An optional overdrive cost DM 650 extra. Internally this model was known as the P-model (P for Panorama glass).

Again a new design. This model, also known as the P-LV, was larger than its predecessor. It still had the panorama-style windscreen, but the completely redesigned rear and lower grille gave the new Kapitän a distinctive appearance.
