MAN Renntransporter "Porsche", 1:18

Opel Blitz racing transporter "Porsche" 1:18

The Opel Blitz double-cab articulated truck of the third post-war generation (1960 to 1965) was a further development of the Opel Blitz built between 1952 and 1960, and was designed for a payload of 1.9 tons. Under the much shorter and sloping bonnet
you could expect to find the 70 bhp, 2.6 liter, six-cylinder petrol engine of the Opel Kapitän.

The 'sloping bonnet' Blitz was available in various shapes and sizes, including a pick-up and box van version and a minibus. Furthermore, it was used as a truck tractor unit along with various special superstructures. The Opel Blitz was therefore also used in the world of motor racing to transport cars. Even though it was not suitable for transporting really heavy objects, it was ideal for some lighter-weight racing cars. As a result, the Porsche Racing Team from Stuttgart transformed an Opel Blitz articulated truck into a racing transporter for the safe transportation of three cars at the start of the sixties.

Like all the other service vehicles of the Porsche Racing Team at that time, the Opel Blitz racing transporter was painted in the attractive guards red livery.

Racing cars such as the Porsche 718, the Porsche 904 GTS and the Porsche 906 Carrera were thus transported from the factory in Stuttgart to legendary circuits like Targa Florio in Sicily, Le Mans in France, the renowned Hockenheimring and the Nürburgring.

This famed Opel Blitz 'Porsche' racing transporter is now available from Schuco as a miniature model on a scale of 1:18 in the PRO.R line. This series has become established as a small series model line made of resin that stands for extraordinary and highly sophisticated models. Thanks to this top quality model-making material, it is possible to create extremely rare and exotic model vehicles in perfect quality and with never-before-seen precision.

VW T1a "Schwäbisch Hall", 1:18

When, in the early days of the German economic miracle, the demand and the need for a multi-purpose small transport vehicle was growing ever greater, Volkswagen, with its VW Transporter, had just the right vehicle on offer. Available in the body variants of delivery van, bus, flatbed truck and Samba microbus, the VW T1, lovingly known in Germany as the „Bulli“, was the ideal vehicle for a wide customer-base. After successful advertising, even as early as the 50s based on widespread closeness to the customer, inventive advertisers very soon found the T1, ever-present in the traffic at the time, to be an ideal mobile advertising platform that, because of its unmistakable design, also came across as a good friend. From the mid-50s, the most attractive and creative advertising T1s were those operated by the Schwäbisch Hall Building Society. Under a wind and weather-proof Perspex dome, a miniaturised new housing estate was presented to future savers and builders. 15 of these eye-catching advertising vehicles were in use throughout Germany on behalf of Schwäbisch Hall until well into the 60s and, whether in the daily traffic or in front of many bank branches, they made everyone aware of the building society idea and the slogan „A house builds something else“.
