Mercedes-Benz 200 Cab B 1936

Mercedes-Benz 200 Cab B 1936

After the 1926 merger of Daimler-Motoren and Benz & Cie the combined
            Daimler-Benz AG had two manufacturing facilities. Automobiles
            descended from Daimler were built at Untertürkheim (Stuttgart) and
            Sindelfingen. The Benz-based automobiles came from Mannheim. This
            1936 Mercedes-Benz 200 with four-place Cabriolet B coachwork is a
            wonderful example of the core of Mercedes-Benz's Stuttgart models.
            Developed from the 170, the 200 was built from 1933-1936. Its
            front-mounted 1,961cc L-head inline six with a 4-speed transmission
            develops 40 brake horsepower at 3,200 rpm but 82.6 lb-ft torque at
            1,100 rpm that makes it easy to drive, even fully loaded with
            passengers and baggage, at low speeds. Significantly for its time,
            the 200 had four-wheel hydraulically-actuated brakes and a coil
            spring rear suspension, much more advanced and reliable than many of
            its contemporaries. With the 200 drivetrain this comfortable
            cabriolet B has a top speed of just over 100 kph. The body has
            rollup windows on the doors and rear quarters with a removable
            B-pillars for tight weather sealing in adverse conditions. Finished
            in red with tan steel wheels matching the tan leather upholstery and
            cloth top, its dual sidemounted spares, veed Mercedes-Benz grille
            and aggressive demeanor accented by a thin chrome beltline molding,
            chrome door hinges and big chrome shell Bosch headlights leaves no
            doubt this is a Mercedes. An attractive older restoration, it runs
            and drives well. The dashboard displays three circular gauges to the
            right of the lefthand steering wheel. A generous trunk under the
            rear deck has ample room for luggage. Semaphore turn signals by the
            windshield posts are a welcome and period-correct safety accessory.
            Its condition today is that of a very attractive, well maintained
            and freshly detailed car for tours that will show with pride at the
            end of a day's run. Rarely seen, this 1936 Mercedes-Benz 200
            Cabriolet B will be a welcome participant in road tours and a
            welcome example of the range of Mercedes-Benz model offerings in the

I love the colour combination on this car. What with the tan wheels and red engine detail it looks good enough to eat. :P
