When one hears that the Super 6 will be replaced after only one year, one can not quite understand the model policy. However, if one speaks from one longer-term restructuring at Opel, at which change engines as well as the whole body, then this is probably more plausible. The Super 6 has already the new six-cylinder, but in the old body. The Kapitän this is self-supporting and it takes over the engine. That makes him only slightly heavier, despite a lot more volume. Now there is one representative in the upper class with the new technology.
Opel would have done so on, and maybe even replaced the Admiral, if not the Second World War would have come up. The Kapitän was certainly constructed so advanced that it rolled off the line even after theWar from 1948 for another five years. Sign of recognition of the pre-war Kapitän are mainly the (including the edge) into the fenders integrated headlights. When driving attract attention the somewhat harder spring system. From 1950 the column gear shift was introduced and later there was still little more power.
