About the Opel Blitz:
The Opel Blitz was the name given to various German light and middle-weight truck series built by the German Opel automobile manufacturer during 1930-1975. During the years preceding WWII, Opel, a subsidiary of General Motors since 1929, was Germany’s largest truck producer. By 1934, there were four base versions offered of the 1-ton basic model, along with 14 versions of the larger 2 and 2- ½ ton trucks. From 1939, the reliable Blitz 3.6 three-ton version was used in large numbers by the German Wehrmacht armed forces during WWII.
In 1952 Opel presented the basic model in a modern rounded design, reminiscent of US pickup trucks. In the following years, Opel produced various vans and trucks with petrol engines, which at the time was much less economical than diesel engines. In 1968, Opel finally offered a 2,100cm Indenor XDP 4.90 diesel engine, but it came too late to regain lost market shares, resulting in Opel GM deciding to not develop a successor. In 1975 the production of Opel commercial vehicles ceased.
