AMAZING 1935 Mercedes 170S Sedan
Concours Ready
Mileage: 11,235
Mercedes bread-and-butter car in the 1930s
was the 170, which was introduced in 1931.
As a six-cylinder model, it was Compact
Yet Advanced.
The wheelbase was a scant 2,600 millimeters
but, on this modest chassis,
the manufacturers fitted a 1.7-litre six,
fully independent rear suspension
(twin transverse leaf springs at the front
and swing axles at the rear),
four-wheel hydraulic brakes and central lubrication,
which kept the chassis in excellent condition.
Nearly 14,000 were built through 1936,
but few survive to this day and
fewer still in this amazing condition.
This smart looking saloon was delivered
through the Daimler-Benz Dresden branch
in October 1935 to Herr Karl Harlng, of Pirna, Germany,
as per a copy of the factory data card.
Included is also the Original Owners Manual,
As Well as Harlngs Original Registration Documents.
It has since been the recipient of a Restoration,
where it was finished in Maroon with Black Wings.
The Roof Has a Black Vinyl Insert
that is outlined in aluminum moldings.
I've never seen a pre-war car
with original owners manual and
original German registration before!
The body is by Mercedes-Benz Karosserie at Sindelfingen,
the same location where Mercedes
were producing the iconic 500K and 540K
Special Roadsters.
This stunning sedan carries it's emblem,
as well as trafficators, which are mounted
to the front door posts.
The headlamp bar has a medallion for AMTC,
an Austrian motor club that was founded
in 1896 and is apparently equivalent to
the Automobile Association.
The interior has Tan Leather Seats and
Matching Door Panels in Vinyl.
They show some careful use
but no excessive wear.
The beige carpets are in very good condition
and the headliner is unblemished.
There is a boot at the rear,
with a spare tire mounted behind it.
The engine compartment is nicely detailed.
I purchased this car last year from a
large European Mercedes collection and
brought it to America for the first time
in its 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
at which time it was given a 2+ rating.
I have a scanned copy of the inspection from 2010.
It was written as an appraisal,
but values were not given to any of the cars.
This car is a very nice example of an
early model 170 that's ready for your next
pre-war concours.
It turns heads and gets the "thumbs-up"
wherever we go.
