Mercedes-Benz 170 S

When Daimler-Benz introduced the 170 S in 1949 it represented the automotive premium class because of its chassis and perfect detailing, and despite its pre-war construction. It’s marketing slogan was “The car that doesn’t know bad roads!”. Given the road conditions at the time, that was quite the statement! Between March of 1949 and February of 1952 26,331 models were built before the slightly edited 170 Sb was introduced.

Our Mercedes-Benz 170 S has an interesting story: It was first delivered as reparations to the materials department of the French military in Germany (FFA) where it was deployed in Oberkirch in the Black Forest. In 1965 the “military Mercedes” received a complete overhaul in Friedrichshafen. In 1974 it “retired” from military service and received a German registration and papers. In 2005 the classic was sold to its current owner and is immediately driveable. Its gorgeous character with foldable sliding roof make this classic stand out!

Mercedes-Benz 170 S

Until 1942, the Mercedes 170 V was the most successful pre-war model. So it made sense for Mercedes to restart production in 1946 with its smallest model. A year later, they were back in serial production. Daimler-Benz would have liked to also build larger vehicles but it took until May of 1949 for the 170 S to come on the market. The stylized concept ressembled the pre-war Mercedes 230, but its engine remained a 4-cylinder. There were also special order convertibles, the crowning jewel being the Cabriolet A. The convertibles were mostly assembled by hand with great effort and precision. Even at that time, this was considered pure luxury and so the Limousine cost DM 10,000 and at a price point of DM 15,800 the Cabriolet A was also a dream car. Only 2,433 Cabriolets A and B were built.

Our Mercedes-Benz 170 S Cabriolet A from 1950 was completely restored and is registered in Germany. Its looks are simply stunning with its blue coat and cream colored leather interior. This convertible is a perfect travel companion for tours with a classic car!
