YAZTEC AUTOMOTIVE IS PROUD TO OFFER THIS UNIQUE AND EXTREMELY RARE 1951 MERCEDES 170Da-OTP (OPEN TOURER POLICE) OR AS THE GERMANS REFERE TO AS "OFFENER TOURENWAGEN PLIZEI" FOE SALE. ONLY 530 OFTHESE RARE VEHICLES WERE FABRICATED IN 1950-1952 AND USED ONLY FOR LAW ENFORCEMENTS AND BORDER CONTROL. MAJORITY OF THEM WERE PAINTED IN THE FRONTIER GREEN COLOR. PLEASE SEE THE LINK BELOW FOR SPECIFICATIONS AND PRODUCTION NUMBERS:

http://et.mercedes-benz-clubs.com/mediawiki/index.php/Kategorie:W136/en#170_Da_.2F_W_136_VI_D.2C_1950_-_1952


WE HAVE ACQUIRED A BIRTH CERTIFICATE FROM MERCEDES BENZ ARCHIVES IN GERMANY TO PROVE THE AUTHENTICITY OF THIS VEHICLE. THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN COLOR CHANGED IN THE PAST. HOWEVER, STILL RETAINS THE ORIGINAL MATCHING ENGINE, TRANSMISSION, REAR END, ETC. IN FACT, SOME OF THE UNDER-CARRIAGE PHOTOS SHOW SOME OF THE ORIGINAL GREEN COLOR. PLEASE REVIEW THE DETAILED IMAGES OF THE CERTIFICATE AS WELL AS THE VIN PLATE, CHASSIS AND ENGINE NUMBERS.



THIS VEHICLE WAS IMPORTED TO TEXAS IN 1983 (SEE THE PHOTO OF THE FREIGHT DOCUMENT).


ANOTHER INTERESTING PART OF THE HISTORY OF THIS CAR INDICATES THAT IT WAS USED BRIEFLY AS BACKGROUND IN A SCENE IN THE MOVIE "THE JESSE OWENS STORY" IN 1984. PLEASE REVIEW THE PHOTO OF A LETTER INDICATING THIS FACT. ALSO, WE WILL PROVIDE A COPY OF THIS MOVIE IN DVD FORM TO THE BUYER.


PLEASE READ THE DETAILED DESCRIPTION PROVIDED BELOW AND REVIEW 89 PHOTOS PROVIDED PRIOR TO BIDDING. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OTHER THAN ASKING FOR THE RESERVE, PLEASE CONTACT AL @ (770)-541-7800 OR EMAIL: yaztec@bellsouth.net.



HERE IS THE DESCRIPTION:


EXTERIOR:

THE BODY IS EXTREMELY SOUND. IT IS FREE OF RUST. ALL PANELS HAVE GOOD SHUT LINES. THE DOORS OPEN AND CLOSE WITH EASE WITHOUT ANY SAG. THEY SHUT AND SOUND JUST LIKE A NEW MERCEDES. THERE ARE NO RUST AT THE HINGES, DOOR JAMBS, OR UNDER THE DOORS.

THE PAINT IS VERY OLD AND LOOKS GOOD IN THE PHOTOS. HOWEVER, THERE ARE NUMEROUS SCRATCHES AND SMALL DINGS IN THE PANELS. THE PAINT IS CRACKED IN SEVERAL LOCATIONS PARTICULARLY IN THE BLACK AREAS. THEREFORE THIS VEHICLE NEEDS TO BE STRIPPED AND PAINTED. WE RECOMMEND TO GO BACK AND PAINT IT THE ORIGINAL PROTECTION OF THE FRONTIER GREEN. THE CHROME BUMPERS AND GRILL ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THE DOOR HANDLES AND MISC. TRIM NEED REPLATING.

THE BLACK CANVAS TOP IS LIKE NEW. WE DO NOT HAVE A BOOT COVER FOR THE TOP. WE WERE IN A RUSH WHEN THE PHOTOS WERE TAKEN THAT IS WHY THE TOP FRAME WAS NOT FOLDED PROPERLY. THE TOP FRONT HEADER IS MISSING ONE OF THE LATCHES. THE SIDE CURTAINS ARE NICE AND SERVICEABLE BUT EVENTUALLY NEED TO BE REDONE. THE WINDSHIELD GLASS LOOKS GOOD. THE LIGHTS AND LENSES LOOK GOOD. SOMEONE HAS ADDED COUPLE OF VERY UGLY ADDITIONAL TAILLIGHTS THAT NEED TO BE REMOVED. THE WHEELS, HUBCAPS, AND TIRES ARE

VERY NICE.


UNDER-CARRIAGE:

THE UNDER-CARRIAGE OF THIS CAR LOOKS ORIGINAL AND AMAZING FOR ITS AGE. THE FLOOR PANS, BATTERY BOXES, FRAME, TRUNK, OUTRIGGERS, INNER AND OUTER SILLS ARE RUST-FREE. THERE ARE SOME LIGHT OXIDATION AT THE SURFACE OF SOME OF THE PANELS BUT NOTHING STRUCTURAL.


MECHANICALS:

THIS MERCEDES IS EQUIPPED WITH ITS ORIGINAL 1767cc, 40 HP, DIESEL ENGINE. IT HAS GOOD GLOW-PLUGS. IT CRANCKS UP EASILY. THE ENGINE RUNS SMOOTH, LOUD, AND SMOKES AS THEY SHOULD. IT HAS GREAT OIL PRESSURE. THE CLUTCH IS STRONG AND THE 4 SPEED SPEED TRANSMISSION SHIFTS GOOD. THE SHIFTER IS A LITTLE SLOPPY AND COULD USE SOME RUBBER BUSHINGS. THE FIRST GEAR POPS OUT OF THE GEAR AND THE SHIFTER NEEDS TO BE HELD. THE BRAKES AND SUSPENSION FUNCTION PROPERLY. THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAS REPLACED ALL 4 BRAKE FLEX HOSES. THE ENGINE, TRANSMISSION, AND REAR AXLE ARE MOIST UNDERNEATH INDICATING MINOR LEAKS. THESE LEAKS NEED TO BE EVALUATED AND REPAIRED. THE IGNITION SWITCH/LOCK SOMETIMES STICKS AND WOULD NOT TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE ENGINE. WE NORMALLY JUST TAKE ONE OF THE BATTERY CABLES OF THE TERMINAL.


ELECTRICALS:

THE LIGHTS AND GAUGES WORK PROPERLY. THE TURN SIGNALS AND HORN DO NOT WORK. WE ARE ORETTY SURE THAT THERE ME SOME BAD CONTACT IN THE SOCKETS. THE ORIGINAL CLOCK WORKS.


ENGINE COMPARTMENT:

THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT LOOKS CLEAN BUT NOT DETAILED. THE COWL STILL SHOWS SOME OF THE OLD GREEN COLOR.



TRUNK:

THE TRUNK LID, HINGES, AND FLOOR IS SOLID. THE LID OPENS AND CLOSES GOOD. IT HOUSES THE ORIGINAL JACK AND HANDLES AS WELL AS SIDE CURTAINS.



THIS CAR IS VERY PRESENTABLE BUT NOT RESTORED. ONCE AGAIN THE PAINT LOOKS GREAT IN THE PHOTOS. CONSIDERING THE RARITY AND ORIGINALITY OF THIS MERCEDES, IT DESERVES A PARTIAL COSMETIC AND MECHANICAL RESTORATION.


THIS VEHICLE HAS A CLEAR TENNESSEE TITLE. THE ODOMETER READING CAN NOT BE VERIFIED. THEREFORE, THIS VEHICLE IS SOLD WITH MILES " EXEMPT" AND  "AS IS".


WE WILL BE GLAD TO ASSIST OR ARRANGE FOR THE SHIPPING WITHIN USA OR TO MOST PORTS WORLDWIDE.

The seller is obviously color blind, they call the color "red".  I think that we would call the color the "passive accident avoidance system" .... see it and get out of the way.

Looks to be in fairly decent shape.
