Nice looking Cabrio, I think it is a 220?

(still trying to correctly identify all the different models)

I must say the blue paintwork is really stunning on these cars,

brings out the flowing bodyworking,

Although I like black, you really need a nice dark colour like blue, red, or green to bring out the classic shape of these cars.

Notice the license plate 00 7

By the way it is a 170S cab A, not a 220 cab A.    The 170S cab A has the external fender mounted headlights, and front fenders that blend with the running board in a sweeping arc.

This cabrio seems to be hitching a ride with a tow truck!
