1935 Mercedes Benz 290B Special Roadster
Registration Number: GLAD879H
Chassis number: 100245
Built in 1935 & bodied as a sedan, this car was first used as a demonstration unit by Mercedes Benz themselves. It was then later sold to HRH Prince Albrecht of Barvaria. He used the car from his palace at Leuchtenberg in Munich until it suffered serious war time damage due to allied bombing.
The remains of the car were acquired by noted marque specialist the late Franz Prahl who constructed down to the minutest detail the fabulous flamboyant special roadster body we find upon the car today. It was made with reference to the original factory drawings & is indeed an amazing recreation of what was the "must have" body work in the 1930's.
The car is matching numbers from new & is correctly titled on German papers as a 1935 Mercedes Benz 290 Spezial roadster.
The car has covered just delivery & shakedown miles since completion & is in fabulaous fully restored as new condition. The exterior paint is Mercedes Schwartz in pristine order. To the interior is Pale cream leather along with the requisite mercedes instrumentaton. Prahl Built cars need no introduction & are known to be simply the best of the best. This one is in brand new condition as it would have left the factory. Need we say more?
