The Mercedes-Benz W136 was one of a range of inline-four cylinder cars from the mid-1930s into the 1950s. The model 170 V made its public debut as successor to the W15 Type 170 in February 1936 and between 1936 and 1939 it was Mercedes-Benz top selling model. By 1947 the model 170 V had resumed its place as Mercedes-Benz top-seller, a position it held until 1953. Lacking a luxury car in its line-up, Mercedes-Benz sought to regain a niche in that market by introducing the upscale 170 S version of the 170 V in 1949. It was more luxurious, costlier and, when launched, slightly larger than the 170 V, distinctions the company made an effort to emphasize. Although sometimes referred to today as the first S-Class Mercedes-Benz, that designation did not yet exist.
This 1951 Mercedes-Benz 170 S four-door saloon was imported from France at the end of 2016. It was purchased from a gentleman who lived on the north west side of Paris who had acquired the car some 25 years ago and spent many years on its restoration. Finished in maroon with grey cloth interior, this lovely example is in excellent condition throughout both coachwork and mechanically, the vendor having driven the car about 1,000 kilometres without incident. A model of car very rarely offered to the market. Chance to buy a fantastic piece of motoring history.
