A new beginning 1945 - 1979
After the end of the war, former Opel employees began to rebuild the nearly completely destroyed Rüsselsheim plant. With only minor changes, the Blitz truck, and later, the Olympia and Kapitan were introduced. With the completion of its Bochum plants in 1962, Opel began a new era. Opel introduced the Senator and Monza models in 1977, again entering the executive class segment.
