170V 2 door coupe - number of manufactured cars
« on: December 29, 2008, 01:17:12 PM »
Hallo collectors and MB fans!
I would like to know, how many 2 door coupe pieces of MB 170V was manufactured and are in condition to the present. Anywhere on internet I didn't find 2 door MB, only here in theme modifications - some de facto destroyed (destroyed as veteran) vehicles.
Thanks for anwers

P.S. I'm sorry for my bad English.

Jan,

According to Werner Oswald there were 9,906 2 door sedans manufactured between the years of 1936 and 1940.

As you may have noticed, our "sightings" (prewar) section is lacking pictures of this model also.  The "sightings" section is an accumulation of pictures over the last four years.  Other than illustrations from Mercedes brochures and Werner Oswald's book, I have never seen pictures of this model.

John Ellis, how I told in the theme about welcome new members, my M.B. is in bad condition, so I don't thing, it is good ilustration of this type. I am a novice here so I don't know, how to add photo of my car to the sightings. I my car should be shown there in the sightings, I would like to mark my photo by my name etc.

So John, if you would wait a few days or week (MB is at our cottage), I could make better photo without plastic on the cowling, watering cans and with T 75, which momentairly stands next to MB.

The black 2 door coupe is actually a 170S postwar car.  Didn't know that this model existed, perhaps a custom bodied car?

Thanks for the correction Jan.  Do you happen to know if the body was constructed pre-war or post-war?  The design lines are very similar to the 170S with the horizontal chrome elements and the windshield wipers located below the window.  Or perhaps Mercedes was influenced by this coach maker in the design of the 170S.
