... its a car from germany, very fine coachwork (chopped on pillars a-b-c for 8 cm!) and fantastic technical solutions =>
rims = 7 and 8 inch, 15 inch diameter
tires = 205/65 front, 235/60 rear
gearbox = ZF, 5 gears
engine = 3.0 ltr. V6 Alfa Romeo, 200 PS
front-axle = MB W115 (/8),
brakes = front from a MB W107 (350 SLC), rear from a audi 200.

All build on a wracked 170SB from 1952, too much rusty for a historical correct restauration.

Shown in "Mercedes Tuner 1/2008", a german tuning-magazine and in the web under http://www.auto-sude.de/Aufbau%20170/Aufbau_Mercedes170.htm.

regards from cologne

Hans

Normally I don't like such cars. But I must say that this one was really nice. Sehr schön.

apart from the Alfa Romeo engine I like it

should have fitted a Mercedes M100 6.9ltr engine to it

There is a guy I know who is doing a 1929 Ford Model T pickup truck fitted with an engine from a Mercedes 450SEL 6.9!

I don't think it would fit in. The nose is very narrow and there is a no room for450SEL 6.9 V8 engine.

Speaking of hot rods, I still have the 38 Sedan which I'm sure we will be removing the engine and transmission. It would be a great candidate for a street rod. Or if anyone wants to restore it and happens to have an engine and transmission, you could go that way too.
