Mercedes-Benz started with the production of 170-series cars in 1970. For the time a great succes for Mercedes-Benz: over two hunderd thousand cars left the Mercedes factory, spread over different generations 170.

From 1931 until 1943 the 170 (W15) was produced. An advanced vehicle at that days wit hindependant suspension of the rear axle, steering wheel lock, lubrication system and hydraulic brakesystem on all wheels. When Mercedes-Benz introduced the 170 (W28) in 1934, the angular design changed to a curvy design.

This prewar Mercedes-Benz is from the 170V (W136) series that was introduced at the 1936 Autoshow in Berlin, Germany. The first roadcars in this serie were produced in 1937 with a 4-cylinder line engine. In 1944, the productionfacility in Stuttgart-Unterturkheim was destroyed by the allies. The “V” in the type 170V stands for “Vorne” because it was built as a front engine car.

The Mercedes 170V (W136) was available as: 2 doors and 4 doors Ihnenlenker, limousine, Cabriolet B, Cabriolet A, Sport roadster and open tourer.

Only a few cars with a roadster body were built, making this 170V Sport Roadster a very unique appearance today. Mercedes-Benz Classic in Stuttgart confirmed that this chassis left the factory with a sport roadster body and delivered as a new car in Kopenhagen, Denmark. In the file with this car are old documents from Denmark present. This car is performed in the beautiful two-tone color black / beige combined with a red leather interior.

The restoration of this Mercedes 170 was performed with a great eye for quality by a specialist, rarely we saw a restored Mercedes in this quality. The bodywork was finished perfectly, making this 170 a perfect fit of the body parts and also the paintwork is exceptionally tight. The engine compartment is fantastically detailed and has been built with great precision. The leather interior is also of very high quality, this combined with the beautiful classic dashboard which makes this Mercedes complete.
