1939 Mercedes-Benz 170V Cabrio-Limousine. This example has been restored to a concours standard and looks stunning presented in black over tan leather interior. The W136 was offered in several different configurations, including four-door sedans, two-door roadsters and, of course, the interesting Cabrio-Limousine option presented here. It features four full-frame doors and hard top rails but with a large canvas sliding roof that retracts completely and stows beneath a leather boot cover. The W136 was produced from 1937 until 1942 (when most production stopped due to WWII) and was the first line to resume post-war production in 1946 before being retired in 1955. The car offered was restored in Europe and part of an extensive Mercedes-Benz collection prior to being imported to the U.S. in 2014. Paint, body, chrome and glass are all finished to a very nice standard, as is the leather-trimmed interior. The 1.7 liter four-cylinder engine is mated to a fully-synchronized four-speed manual transmission. This Benz starts easily and runs and drives well. This is a lovely example for touring or shows and would be a fine addition to any pre-war Mercedes-Benz collection.
