1935 Mercedes 170 Sedan
Mercedes’ bread-and-butter car in the 1930s was the 170, hich was introduced in 1931. As a six-cylinder model, t was compact yet advanced. The wheelbase was a scant 2,600 millimeters but, n this modest chassis, he manufacturers fitted a 1.7-litre six, ully independent rear suspension (twin transverse leaf springs at the front and swing axles at the rear), our-wheel hydraulic brakes and central lubrication, hich kept the chassis in excellent condition. Nearly 14,000 were built through 1936, ut few survive to this day and fewer still in this amazing condition.
This smart looking saloon was delivered through the Daimler-Benz Dresden branch in October 1935 to Herr Karl Harlüng, f Pirna, ermany, s per a copy of the factory data card. Included is also the original owner’s manual, s well as Harlüng’s original registration documents. It has since been the recipient of a restoration, here it was finished in maroon with black wings. The roof has a black vinyl insert that is outlined in aluminum moldings.
The original owners manual and original German registration. I’ve never seen a pre-war car with these docs before! The body is by Mercedes-Benz Karosserie at Sindelfingen, he same location where Mercedes were producing the iconic 500K and 540K Special Roadsters. This stunning sedan carries it's emblem, s well as trafficators, hich are mounted to the front door posts. The headlamp bar has a medallion for ÖAMTC, n Austrian motor club that was founded in 1896 and is apparently equivalent to the Automobile Association.

The interior has tan leather seats and matching door panels in vinyl. They show some careful use but no excessive wear. The beige carpets are in very good condition and the headliner is unblemished. There is a boot at the rear, ith a spare tire mounted behind it. The engine compartment is nicely detailed.
I purchased this car last year from a large European Mercedes collection and brought it to America for the first time in it’s long life. It isn’t the fastest car in my stable but it certainly is one of the most appreciated. The previous owner had this car inspected in 2010 by Norbert Shroeder of Kleofactum at which time it was given a “2+” rating. (see this Bloomberg article about Norbert Shroeder).
Here is a scanned copy of the inspection from 2010 (minus pics). It was written as an “appraisal”, ut values were not given to any of the cars.
This car is a very nice example of an early model 170 that's ready for your next pre-war concours. It turns heads and gets the "thumbs-up" wherever we go.
