coachbuilders franay had a long association with delahaye, bugatti, delage, and more frech cars of the 20s, 30s, and 40s...though what really made delahaye the legend it is today was its relationship with coachbuilders figoni et falaschi...some astoundingly flamboyant bodies were built, trademark to them.

ID128: is a 1939 Opel Kapitän cabriolet.

It had a 2473 cc straight six-cyl. that put out 55 bhp @ 3600 rpm and 145 Newton-metres of torque at 1600 rpm. It had three-on-the-tree (3-speed gearbox with lever on the steering-column).
Importantly Opel did away with the chassis and had a unitary body construction.
The Kapitän could peak out at 126 km/h.

The post second-world-war export versions were called Opel Super-Six in Holland and France. These markets recovering from the Second-world war were allergic to the military-sounding "Kapitän" name.

Now comes the confusion: Its round headlamps! The pre-war models (1939) had squared-off hexagonal ones.


Your specimen shows round headlamps, but Opel had discontinued the pre-war two-door and convertible Kapitäns, after the war! So it can't be post-war (1947-1950).

So methinks, your pre-war cabriolet may have had the headlamps converted to
the post-war round, somewhere down the road. Do comment.

Ram

PS. It was mfd. at Adam Opel's Rüsselsheim factory, Germany.
See the factory here on Google Earth (49.988749, 8.395149), 13 km west of Frankfurt airport.

ID:130 is a 1971/72 Datsun 510.
But it is heavily modified with non-standard grille, roll cage, flared wheel arches and non-standard wheels. Shall we avoid posting one-off project cars, drag racing shells,
and heavily modified cars that didn't even have a production run of 10 identical specimens?

i completely agree...one offs or heavily modded cars could fit into the other categories...
