The legendary Barkas B1000 and its historical significance

The Barkas B1000 was a small transporter that played an important role in everyday life in the GDR. It was produced from 1961 to 1990 by VEB Barkas-Werke Karl-Marx-Stadt. It replaced the Barkas V901/2 and served in various areas, from ambulance services to crafts businesses and the police. This second generation of the Barkas B1000 (1961-1990) was known for its versatility and reliability. Equipped with a two-stroke engine, the small transporter had a power output of 42 horsepower and a top speed of about 62 mph. A special variant of the B1000 was the military patrol version, specially modified for use in the NVA (National People's Army). These vehicles were recognized for their rugged construction and adaptability.
