Mercedes-Benz 170V Sport Roadster 1939

General description : 1939 Mercedes 170V Sport Roadster

Mercedes-Benz started with the production of 170-series cars in 1970. For the time a great succes for Mercedes-Benz: over two hunderd thousand cars left the Mercedes factory, spread over different generations 170.

From 1931 until 1943 the 170 (W15) was produced. An advanced vehicle at that days wit hindependant suspension of the rear axle, steering wheel lock, lubrication system and hydraulic brakesystem on all wheels. When Mercedes-Benz introduced the 170 (W28) in 1934, the angular design changed to a curvy design.

This prewar Mercedes-Benz is from the 170V (W136) series that was introduced at the 1936 Autoshow in Berlin, Germany. The first roadcars in this serie were produced in 1937 with a 4-cylinder line engine. In 1944, the productionfacility in Stuttgart-Unterturkheim was destroyed by the allies. The “V” in the type 170V stands for “Vorne” because it was built as a front engine car.

The Mercedes 170V (W136) was available as: 2 doors and 4 doors Ihnenlenker, limousine, Cabriolet B, Cabriolet A, Sport roadster and open tourer.

Only a few cars with a roadster body were built, making this 170V Sport Roadster a very unique appearance today.

About Mercedes-Benz
In 1886 Karl Benz built Benz Patent Motorwagen widely regarded as the first automobile. Little did he know this was to be the beginning of the world's most renown premium car manufacturer. -Mind you the venture was financed by his wife Bertha Benz.

Not too far Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft founded by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach, started marketing their car in 1901 using now famous name:  Mercedes (Spanish for godsend), which was chosen after their distributor Emil Jellinek's daughter.

To make a long story short, Daimler merged in 1926 with Benz & Cie., becoming Daimler-Benz and adopting Mercedes-Benz as its automobile trademark

Although deemed by some conservative the truth is actually quite the opposite, Daimler-Benz history is filled with 'firsts': Honeycomb radiator, float carburetor,   four wheel brakes 1924, (although Duesenburg Model A was reported to be sporting them as early as 1922), first diesel powered passenger car in 1936, the Mercedes-Benz 260 D,  first direct fuel injection in the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing (well not really as tiny 2-stroke Gutbrod actually had the first direct fuel injection) )  front and rear crumple zones ie. safety cell by Béla Barényi patented in 1951 and introduced in “Ponton”-models , Anti-Lock Brake system (ABS) was first offered on the W116 450SEL 6.9, first production airbags...and the list goes on.

During its 100+ years Mercedes has produced more than a fair share of iconic cars; SSKL , 710 SSK Trossi Roadster, 770K Grosser, 540K Spezial Roadster, 300SL Gullwing, w100 600 Pullman, w111 280SE 3.5 Flachkühler, w113 230SL Pagoda, w109 300 SEL 6.3, w201 2.3-16 Cosworth to name just a few.

One should not forget the famous Silver Arrows (Silberpfeile) either: W 25, W 125, w154, w165, w196 all of which were more than capable of trashing their opponents on the track.
