Owners Manuals and Shop Manuals

Happy New Year!
I'm about to finish fitting the righthand door on the 170S Cabriolet A so the car can go to the paint shop. My next project is getting  a 1931 Mannheim 370S ready to go to Amelia Island in the spring. Does anyone on the list know a source of an owners manual and/or shop manual for the Mannheim?
Thanks,

You may have to contact the Mercedes Benz archives in Germany to get any information on Mannheim model.

I am curious, is this a roadster or sport cabriolet on the short chassis?  Only 180 of this type made.

This was a powerhouse in it's time.  The 6 cylinder 3.7 liter M10 II engine produced 75 HP with dual Solex carburetors.

If you have no success with the Classic Center (and you may not have as the Mannheim factory was destroyed during WW2 and most, if not all the records destroyed), let me know. I may have a contact in Germany that has a copy.
