CURTAIN - Rear window
« on: January 08, 2018, 12:06:47 PM »
Dear friends,

I'm been browsing and searching the net for some kind of photos illustrating the details of the rear curtain.
This was an option back in the days but obviously not many owners opted this function.

Compared to a modern automated back mirror dimming function this solution is so sweet :-)
A cord from upside driver door, following the roof side and attached to a curtain underneath the rear window.

I'm not really sure if I have all pieces in place. Nor how the cord ending should be done.
I attach the info I have but would appreciate if someone could post some photos of the installation, in detail.

Many thanks in advance!

/Thomas

That is very interesting.  I had never heard of that option.  Was it a factory option or some kind of an after-market creation?

Scott, I think it was a factory option as well. For sure, it was a genuine Daimler-Benz production but it was introduced first in 1951, from a certain VIN series and up. 
I got some photos (attached) from an European owner currently renovating his 170S-51

Great pics, Thomas. Looks like he kept it in a pretty good condition. Any more pics of the car?
