Some OPEL Commercial Trucks Owner Manuals PDF are above the page - Combo, Movano, Vivaro.
The history of the most famous Opel truck of all time began in 1937.
Almost simultaneously with a difference of a year, two models went on sale - with a carrying capacity of 1.5 and 3.1 tons.
And both were immediately adopted.
And in 1940, at the request of the military, they released an all-wheel drive version of the Opel Blitz 3.6-6700A.
By design, Blitz is very close to its American counterparts. Overhead valve (OHV) six-cylinder engine with a displacement of 3.6 liters and a power of 68 hp at the beginning of the war at 3000 rpm.
The torque was 196 Nm at 1800 rpm.
Since 1944, power has risen to 73.5 hp at 3120 rpm.
This was quite enough to disperse a car with a gross weight of 6100 kg up to 80-85 km / h on asphalt, which was very solid for a “three-ton” by European standards.
By the way, almost the same motors were installed on Chevrolet and GMC trucks. The gearbox for all modifications is a five-speed.
The transfer case of the all-wheel drive version is in two steps, located in the middle of the car.
The suspension is dependent, on springs, and the brakes are hydraulic.
After a break, the Blitz again left the Daimler-Benz and Opel conveyors, which ended up on the territory of Germany. In almost unchanged form, they were produced until 1954.
