The Mercedes 170 series cars were produced after WWII and were the full size models prior to the introduction of the 1953 180 Ponton series. The 170 production run lasted from 1949 through 1952 and came with “V”, “D” or “S” designations. “S” usually stood for special or in some cases super relating to performance. The postwar 170 model cars still had a nostalgic prewar look since they were built from left over parts. They came in 3 versions, short wheelbase with either gas or diesel power, or the luxury long wheelbase model with an inline 1700cc 52 hp 4 cylinder engine that offered more roominess, style and comfort.

This 1949 Mercedes was part of a German car collection in Europe. It was shipped over from Greece in 2008, prior to that it underwent a complete and detailed restoration in Germany in 2007. It retains the classic look of a prewar 30’s Daimler Benz. The exterior color of light yellow with a beige fabric interior is period for the time and looks pleasing. The working Semaphore turn signals are also a nice period feature. The instrumentation panel, wood trim and brightwork are impeccable and are nicely detailed. This car comes with books, records, and service manuals. Back in 1949, this high line Mercedes Benz could motor down the Autobahn at steady 75 mph, today this rare car would garner trophies on the fairways at Amelia Island.
