Yes i mentioned the first car already here on the forum.
i have a picture of it out site of the museum ( have a look if i can find him)
the car above is differend with the car from Hans
the brown coupe is based on a 170v chassis
the blue one is a 170 S coupe prototype and became later the 220 coupe, the story is that a CEO from Mercedes wanted a Christmas present for his wife.
the 220 coupe was never planed but afther this 170S coupe proto a car journalist spotted the car and wrote an article in a car magazine.
Afther that a lot of request by Mercedes.

Regards Jan

i found it  :D

the car is in the IFA museum in Amerang Germany
 a visit is highly recommended

Now you can better see that it is based on a 170V and not on a 170S cab A
