If the VW T1 was the most successful small transporter of the 1950s and 1960s in West Germany, this position was held in the German
Democratic Republic from 1961 by the Barkas B1000. Announced as a „Schnelltransporter“(quick transporter), the Barkas B1000 was
produced in the period 1961–1990 in the VEB Barkas-Werke in Karl-Marx-Stadt, now Chemnitz. As a box van, it now appears to a scale of
1:43 as a „Schwalbe Customer Service“vehicle with a Schwalbe KR51 as its dashing load. The 1:43 model of this flatbed truck is a
replica of a customer service vehicle for the ‘Schwalbe’ moped, which was manufactured by the East German company Simson. It comes
with a Schwalbe KR51 moped and a Simson technician.
