Contenders’ results of the day, the 170 V held propelled designing underneath the lines of its exemplary coachwork. Developed on an oval tube undercarriage with free suspension in the front and swing hub suspension in the back, which would go about unaltered until the 1960s, the 170 V displayed better taking care of and ride in examination than different marques of the day.

It included a collapsing windshield outline, side draperies, and a back collapsing “thunder seat”.

The blue over cream body is highlighted with a delicate dull blue top, whilst the new inside is shading coordinated with cream material trimmed with blue channeling. Lifting the hood uncovers a spotless motor inlet, as well as cowl-mounted instruments and jacking hardware. Hella spot lights are mounted on both cowl sides simply over the trafficators, and the back of the body is highlighted by an appropriate metal-shrouded save. Bosch headlamps, horn, and wiper engine can be found in different territories of this nice looking auto. By and large, every range of this uncommon sample introduces exceptionally well and will be welcomed by any viewer that comprehends the fine nature of a low generation Mercedes-Benz.
