This is truly a rare one.  Does anyone know the history of this car?  Is it a coach built custom bodied 170S or a modified 170S cab A?

I understand the 170V was produced from MB in a coupe, but was the 170-S?

Des ,

There was never a coupe 170 V or S in the salesbrochures
The 170V coupe as you mentioned was actually a 2 door saloon


i know from the 170 s coupe it was a special ,i read once a story about it that 1 coupe was made as  a design prototype
an other as a Christmas or birthday gift for the wife of an management director

after that the began to produce the 220 coupe

Thanks Jan,

I guess these cars showing differences would be low production custom coach built cars.




Kind Regards
Des
