This was partly due to the styling in combination with the excellent quality and the competitive pricing. It was not until 1899 that the first Opel car was produced. In 1929 the company became an Aktiengesellschaft and was sold to the American General Motors group, a company that was founded in 1898 and was already active worldwide in car production in 1929. The Opel Kapitän was the top-class model of the Opel factories between 1939 and 1970. Opel Kapitän models are usually equipped with a six-cylinder in-line engine with a displacement of 2.5 to 2.8 liters. The Opel Kapitän was the last model constructed by Opel before the Second World War and was presented to the world first at the Geneva Motor Show in 1939. It was also the first model to come off the production line after the Second World War in 1948. This Opel Kapitän was build in 1955 and it came to Netherlands in 2012. Since then it has been up in a private collection. There is little known of the early history of this car but is clear that this Kapitän was treated very well. The underside of this car is completely free of rust and is completely original, the seller did not find any traces of rust repairs. The car has been painted somewhere in its life to a high standard and the paint is till good and shiny. Also for the this car ris extremely original and unmolested. The indicator of the kilometers in the dashboard shows 29389 kilometers and the sellers believes that is correct. The seller indicates that the interior and the chrome is completely original. The chrome has some pitting and also the interior would benefit from some love although this certainly not necessary.
