This rare Opel Blitz was built in 1940 in Brandenburg and bought by the owner in 1982. The restoration was completed in 1993.
This Blitz has an original rare steel factory cabin and is equipped with an open loading platform. The complete drivetrain (engine, gearbox and axles) has been completely loose and overhauled with all bearings replaced.
After extensive searches in various countries, an original Imbert Houtgas generator has been found and returned to its original condition and assembled.
The owner's company used to drive this type of Opel Blitz and transport building materials.
