Opel’s first mass produced car rolled out in 1935 with a full steel body and having a monocoque structure. This model was named Olympia in anticipation of the coming 1936 Berlin Olympics (more famous for American black runner Jesse Owens winning 4 gold medals and dashing away Adolf Hitler's theory of 'Aryan' supremacy). This model continued to be produced for the next two decades.
Then the first change came in 1953, that embraced the ponton design giving rise to a completely new model. Since, this car carried the legacy of the original Olympia, the new model was named Opel Olympia Rekord.
The KR 200 produced by the German aircraft manufacturer Messerschmitt from 1955-1964 and had a 191cc, 2-stoke, single cylinder engine that was positioned at the rear wheel. It had an aeroplane type steering wheel and tandem seating.
Opel’s concept of stationwagon’s (estate) meant combining the words of Car & Van giving rise to new name for all stationwagon models – CarAVan.
This particular metal model in 3-piece set comes with car + trailer + microcar.
