Opel Kapitän Custom

Opel Kapitän Custom

Imagine growing up in the automobile scene of Los Angeles pre-WWII but then ending up in Europe after the war and deciding to make it a career given the rebuild to take place in Germany. Of course you never forgot the custom cars in California. Opel Kapitän’s with their funky headlights are on the road and are cheap and somewhat similar to pre-war Fords — so you go acquire one and then start chopping, fatten up the convertible c-pillar, add skirts, get rid of the excess trim and lower it. Single Appleton as dual’s came later. AB plates for American occupied Zone / Bavaria of course!
