1937 MB 170 V
« on: October 12, 2013, 01:42:49 PM »
 
My car, MB 170V, two doors was built in 1937. According to the previous owner, the car arrived in Switzerland in 1938 and since then never left Switzerland.
I restored the car from trash to a good car.
On July 16, with my wife, we drove the car from Sion, to Stuttgart to visit the Mercedes Benz Museum.
Then 75 years later the 170V has returned to her homeland for the first time.
We drove the car 1300 kilometres from Sion to Stuttgart and back to Sion. Not a single problem. It was just beautiful.
Since I restored this car I drove it for 7000 kilometres.
With my best regards and many good driving for all  around the world.
