The Kapitän, introduced in March 1951, was a stylistically slightly modernized version of the old model; technically it was much the same.


From the outside the car was readily distinguished from the first post-war Kapitäns, thanks to an abundance of chrome[6] and a US style grill at the front. This was the most modern large mass-produced car in Europe during the immediate pre-and postwar years. Competitive Mercedes models with flat, upright, one piece windscreen and external headlamps seemed from another age in spite of their greater prestige value. The result was that this solidly built and comfortable car lost rapidly in value and maintenance effort, with few second-hand buyers being able to afford to tax and insure a 2.5-litre engine at the time. Power later increased to 60 PS (44 kW; 59 hp), as better petrol quality allowed manufacturers to increase compression ratios.


Please note: The ouer blister packaging needed to be opened in order to photograph. It was then replaced and the openings sealed with transparent tape. This does not effect the model or display plinth, only the outer packaging.
