That was my first idea, too. But it looks a bit too small, and there were no 2-door wagons. Or was this specially made for DK ?

Yes ,and the hupcap is 1952. The Danish have always had tendencies to convert Delivery vans to chap station wagons, by putting non original windows, of tax reasons.

The tax rules have changed several times, but I don´t think you could put sidewindows on a Van at this point without paying full tax for the car, and you wouldn´t be allowed to take a Van to drive on your holiday.

These windows look rather factory installed, which leads me to believe that it might be something special made for danish market in the Copenhagen assembly plant. A two door wagon based on a Delivery Van, assumably for the poosibility to make it cheaper than the original four door wagon. With a 180% tax, all measures to reduce basic price had to be considered.

In the sixties they made a mix of Opel Delivery Vans and Caravans, adapted for the different tax levels of that period.

:think: These mixes, you are mentioning, DAF555, hadn't they the -nowadays available again- white-yellow "parrot"-plates? AFAIK it was the reason, why some Danish cars have yellow plates, to show, that due the tax they are only for commecial use, or? And these "parrot"-plates were ment for these mixture-cars, or??

That´s right, I think the original, yellow/black parrotplates, came in 1958 and were available for new cars until 1971 when rules changed. You paid a higher tax on these than ordinary Vans on yellow plates. For the extra tax you were allowed to put a backseat in the car, but no sidewindows, and you were also permitted to use it for private driving. Yellow pates were only for strict business use.
When rules changed you could either keep the car unchanged or pay a small amount extra tax and get black plates with no restrictions at all and put in sidewindows. The rules for yellow plates were less heavy and sidewindows were allowed for safety reasons, but no backseats. What´s allowed for the new yellow/white plates I´m not sure of.

The Opel´s could be delivered in a variety of combinations, either a strict Panel Van on yellow or yellow/black plates. Or a Panel Van assembled with the floor from the Caravan with space for a folding backseat, yellow/black plates. You could also have a Caravan with full interior but covered sidewindows on yellow/black plates.
Most of these were converted to windows, and the large part were relicensed on either yellow or black plates, but some have survived with their original parrotplates and without sidewindows.
