In 1949 Daimler-Benz introduced the Mercedes 170 S (S = special class) at the Paris Auto Salon. Compared to the only other post war car, the 170 V this was a big improvement. The industry media was enthusiastic about its "peace like" construction and finish. The separate chassis allowed for special body styles so the four-door Cabriolet B and the stunningly beautiful Cabriolet A were created.
Our classic Mercedes-Benz 170 S Cabriolet A was delivered to Casablanca (French Morocco at the time), according to its factory certificates. Its color and interior were exactly like today. Later, the car went to Maryland, USA and came back to Germany in 1990. Its current owner treated the car with a "frame off" restoration aiming to restore its factory delivery state. Since 2007 this historic Mercedes is back on the road and is just an effortless joy to drive. It is one of the best we ever offered.
