MERCEDES 230 CABRIOLET B (W153) year 1939. The car is a very rare prewar model 6 cylinders and four speed manual transmision. It is for complete restoration o parts. Was disarmed years ago. Now the engine and gearbox is out of the car. Fenders, front grill and all body parts go with the car. Important missing parts: front seats, rear seat and soft top frame. Dashboard is complete but in bad condition. The car was sold new in 1939 in Berlin (Germany). I have the original maintenance book with these records: first revision in Berlin 23.11.1939 with 500 kms. / Insbruck, 29.12.1939 with 1649 kms / Roma, 2.1.1940 with 2259 kms / Madrid, 28.8.1941 with 7000 kms / etc.  Someone drove this car across Europe in war!!  If this car could speak, it would count many histories. It is part of history of the 20th century.

The car is in Madrid (SPAIN). I can help in the shipping to worldwide. I can send the car in container to any port.

If you need more information or pictures send me an email. Thanks!

I would imagine the soft top frame for this car would be extremely difficult to find.

This is basically the same car as a post war 170s Cab B......  biggest difference would be the engine, I would think.
