Please help me identify the technical history of a 1-tonner

Hi!
I've recently bought a 1-tonner and is now trying to identify the technical history of the truck.

This is a Blitz that was originally imported in stripped version (chassis, engine, transmission and radiator) from Germany probably early in 1935.
The importer was a tinsmith company nearby the Norwegian city Drammen and the company was called Br?dr. Olsen (Olsen brothers). Before first time registration of the truck, the firm produced a flatbed and a cabin with a wooden framework.

Enclosed You will find a picture of the firm logo placed above the front windshield within the cabin. I have also enclosed a picture of the factory building more or less as it was when Br?dr. Olsen finished up the Blitz.

The truck had it's first time registration in July 13 1935 - see enclosed scanned version of the registration document.

I'm the third owner since 1935, and the former owner just owned it from 2005 to 2008.

Numbering placed on different locations on the Blitz, is presented here;

          - Numbering on Chassis
               - 2 V-5689
          - Numbering on Engine
               - 23893 (main numbering)
               - Other numbers stamped on the engine is:
                      - 2528148
                      - 3520948
                      - 22 G35 17
          - Numbering on Transmission
               - 2515614
               - 2520948
               - LIZENZ UNTER D.R.P. 400906
          - Numbering on Carburator
               - 2521865
               - (in addition this i stamped on the carburator: HERGE ST. MIT LIZENZ DER CARTER CARBURETOR CORP. D.R.P.a.)

My question to You all are:
          - What can be read from the numbering above regarding the production dating of the Blitz?
          - What can be read from the numbering above regarding the production site of the Blitz?
          - Does the numbering states that the engine, the transmission and the carburator is from the originally delivered Blitz back in 1935?

Looking forward to any comments or clearification from You.  :c016:

Best regards
Geir Tangen

Thank You very much for the information Robert! :c011:

That means that the vehicle most likely was imported to Norway late in May 1935, went through a coach/flatbed-building process in June 1935, and in the end was sold and registered in the first half of July 1935.

Do You have any suggestion regarding where the engine/clutchhouse originally came from? Was it for instance from an Opel-2,0 Liter (Models 20103 and 20120), or an Opel-Super 6 (Models 25104 and 3700)?
:c024:

Just a follow-up question to fully understand Your answer; The numbers You are mentioning for Zylinderblock, ?lwanne and Kupplungsgeh?use, are they all numbers that should be present in my Blitz if the parts should be the originally linked to the chassis?
:c024:

Best regards

Hello, the Engine is from an 1935 Opel 2,0 about the numbers.
Also das entspricht aber nicht dem Vereinsstandart...
