1958 Opel Kapitän The lady looks like my sister's early Barbie doll from 1959. And just look at the charming way she sets her feet - let's hope she does not stumble when walking away. This Kapitän, the P2.5, was only produced in 1958 and 1959. Apparently, styling was considered a bit too 'American' for European taste, so a toned down version, the P2.6, was introduced in 1959.
