Hi

Since the Sb has an engine with a timing chain the oilpump and the camshaft are also different.
Otherwise they would rotate in the wrong direction.

The first Sb 1952 has wood trims at the doors and the dashboard. Sb 1953 has trims made of "Pagholz" a kind of bakelite.

The Sb 1952 has a cover at the bottom of the radiator grill fr manuel start.
The Sb 1953 has no hole for this function.
Some of the first Sb 1952 has the same hood lock function as the 170S. My friend has this early version.

I think that theese differences were all done at different times.
In the 170Sb parts catalouge you can see from which chassie number the changes were introduced.

I have driven my Sb 60.000km with a column shift and I prefeer it compared to the stick shift.


Thats all for today!

If you wisit the meeting i Haigern Germany 2020 I will be there with my Sb.

Good evening Henri

First of all thank you for your interest, your answer and your feedback. Its very interesting
To answer the first point I saw last month two models of 170 Sb here on Europe  that may interest me.
Both models are in parts and would be complete (to be checked !!!). One of them belonged to a former repairer and I do not know if all the parts belong to the model Sb.
That's why I need to know the differences between 170S and Sb ...
Also as you know certainly ,and as Nietzsche said  "the devil is hiding in the details" and when I talk about something I prefer to know what I'm talking about
In addition we are a little "on late" on the documentation Mercedes here in France  and more particularly on the W136-W191 and W187 and we are sorely lacking information.
I hope it does not bother anyone in the forum that I ask all these and my questions , but I preferred talking with experts than people whom don't know .
For helping everybody , if necessary I could synthesize all the information collected and make a benefit of the community by establishing a document like the one wanted by our friend Lars previously.
Best regards

Marc

Marc, Do you have a particular 170Sb that you are thinking of buying? Unless it's a very incomplete car, I don't think at this point you need to worry about all the differences. If you haven't bought the car yet, do try to survey what is missing, at least the major things. You should focus on a car that is mostly complete and not too rusty. There are parts available.

I will make one comment about the column shifter. These can be tricky to get right but are fine when they are set up properly. I think they make the car more pleasurable to drive than the floor shift. Many people like the "vintage look and feel" of the floor shift but wouldn't want it if I had the choice. I restored a 170 Sb quite a while ago where the owner started to make the conversion to floor shift. I talked him out of it, and built the car with the column shift. A number of years later, a new owner wanted the floor shift and had me convert it, against my advice. I can't remember the details, but the tunnel parts which are removable are not directly interchangeable and the cut out on the cowl is a different shape. The tunnel for the column shift car is taller.
