1939 Mercedes 170V Cabriolet
Successor to the W15 six-cylinder 170 model, he 170V, nternal code W136, as slightly larger than its predecessor, ore powerful and fitted with a 1,697 cc inline L-head four-cylinder engine, our-speed manual gearbox, our-wheel independent suspension, nd four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
Introduced in 1936, t had a more streamlined body than the 170 and was sold at a lower price. The “V” signified vorn, erman for front, istinguishing it from the rear-engine 170 H model, ith the “H” standing for heck, r rear. The 170V’s reliability and ease of use meant that it fell naturally to taxi work, hich is a role that Mercedes continues in Germany to this day. THIS CAR
This 170V, elivered in August 1939 through the Daimler-Benz Königsberg branch, as the unusual cabriolet saloon body. It is essentially a four-door with a fold-back black fabric roof that gives open air to all passengers when opened. The side rails and windows, owever, emain in place, roviding shelter from the wind and cold.
The 170V was the most popular Mercedes model in its day, ith more than 70,000 built from 1936 to 1942. The Cabriolet Saloon, owever, s one of the more unusual variations, nd it is seldom seen today. Certainly, hey are rarely seen in this condition.
This is a stunning car and looks every bit of ten times the actual price!
This beautiful 170V was part of a substantial European Mercedes collection for many years. It sat proudly next to 300SL’s and pre-war 500K and 540K Roadsters, ntil 2013 when I purchased it and brought it to America for the first time in it’s long life. This isn’t one of the fastest cars in my stable but it certainly is one of the most appreciated.
The black paint has a deep shine and very few blemishes. The brightwork has all been recently re-plated. The car is upholstered in tan leather, hich is all in excellent condition. The dashboard is painted gloss black and presents very well, hilst tan carpet lines the floor. A day-night mirror is mounted above the windscreen. The rear of the car has an exposed spare tire with a fitted black fabric cover. The engine compartment and undercarriage are finished to an excellent standard and fully functional.
This beauty will turn heads and get the “thumbs up” wherever you go. People love it and it will be very much appreciated at any concours event.
I purchased this car last year from a large European Mercedes collection and brought it to America for the first time in it’s long life. It isn’t the fastest car in my stable but it certainly is one of the most appreciated. The previous owner had this car inspected in 2010 by Norbert Shroeder of Kleofactum in 2010. (see this Bloomberg article about Norbert Shroeder).
Here is a scanned copy of the inspection from 2010 (minus pics). It was written as an “appraisal”, ut values were not given to any of the cars.
