Unlike the 170 OTP, this is really a rare model.  It's chassis number is listed as 187.150 but I believe it should be 187.015 which is a 4 door tourenwagen offener (open touring wagen).

I like the car but don't care too much for the lack of color. It's like an albino car with the exception of the top.  Stephen
