Opel Blitz Porsche Set in 1:43 Scale by Schuco


This is the  Opel Blitz Porsche Set in 1:43 Scale by Schuco.

Following the huge success of the 1.5 tonne Opel Blitz truck in the 1930s, in 1952 Opel launched a 1.75 tonne model to replace its
prewar predecessor. With its American-inspired design, the Opel Blitz was a true trendsetter in the history of German post-war trucks.
Its 2.5 litre, 6-cylinder 58 hp engine helped the Blitz to reach a maximum speed of almost 100 kilometres per hour. Thanks to its
sophisticated and extremely reliable design, the Blitz 1.75 T was used by the Deutsche Bundespost (German Federal Post Office),
government authorities and the private sector, as well as the Porsche racing service. Almost 90,000 vehicles of this series were sold
between 1952 and 1960.

This model is hand painted and polished to a beautiful finish and has a sealed body. These diecast models are exceptionally accurate of scale, shape and detail. Interior detail is hand assembled and easily visible. Photo etched parts, die-cutting, tampo printing and waterslide decals are often used for a most authentic replication
