The Barkas B 1000 was a pickup truck, which was manufactured in the years 1961-1990 in the VEB Barkas-Werke Karl-Marx-Stadt. The one-ton engine with two-stroke engine was located in the production program of the GDR above the Multicar and below the Robur LO.
a Barkas, the VW Transporter van of East-Germany.  At that time corresponded to the B 1000 formally and technically quite the state of the art, such as a comparison with former Western vans VW Bus, Ford Transit, DKW Rapid, Tempo Wiking or Renault Estafette. Especially with the chassis and the payload space factor, the B 1000 took a top position.
Ambulance, fire truck, military vehicle, transit van and lorry: the Barkas B1000 was all of this and more. Even the secret police Stasi famously used the Barkas to transport prisoners. To conceal their actual purpose, the vans were labelled ‘Fresh fish’ or ‘Fruit and vegetables’.
There’s more and more interest in these vans that have at least as much charm as an old VW Transporter. One thing is for sure: you have to hurry up if you still want one, because it won’t be long before everyone discovers this charismatic fellow
