Mercedes 170v Staff Car

A bit of history………………..

Historically, the 170V was displayed by Mercedes Benz at the Berlin Motor Show and a production run from 1935 to As with most of early Benz models, the 170V was a display of luxury and class. of W15 body lines, the V170 on to becoming a best-selling car.

Its was unsurpassed as due to a WWII fuel many models were to run on gas produced by burning wood and in specially designed canisters on both ends. The resulting gas was to power the engine while the was diverted to the car’s interior, a welcomed solution in wintertime.

Production of the Mercedes-Benz 170 V (W 136 I series) was in May 1946. Even though 214 units were produced the end of that year, this was to raise hopes of a return to car production. Initially, however, it was not but pickups, panel vans and which came off the assembly because the Allied Control had prohibited the manufacture of passenger for the time being. It was not before 1947 that production of sedans was resumed which however, supplied almost to authorities.

What had happened at the time was Just twelve days Germany’s capitulation, the Untertürkheim – or what had been left of it – was re-opened on May 20, 1945. Some wage-earners and salaried employees back. Initially, the occupying only permitted the clearing of rubble and – in their own interests – the of their military vehicles in workshops.

Production of motor was prohibited – and wouldn’t have possible anyway for lack of andmaterials. And yet, modest activities were resumed with a rather mixed including a first vehicle a bicycle trailer.

A ray of hope was made out at the Sindelfingen press-shop: it had survived the air raids relatively little damage – and facility accommodated the tools for the 170 V passenger car model which had produced from 1935. If this was the key to the company’s return to the business. In November 1945, the powers issued a permit to AG for the production of pickup, panel van and versions of the 170 V. The company engaged in the for production energetically, despite shortage of skilled workers, raw materials, coal and electricity. The 170 V engine was completed in Untertürkheim in 1946; the first complete finally, came off the assembly in May 1946, as outlined above.

In engineering terms, the “new” 170 V was a model – surely a good one in its design, clearly more ten years old. Its side-valve corresponded to the state of the art of a bygone the trunk was not accessible from and the bodywork, completely separated its X-shaped tubular frame, was some way away from the attempts at self-supporting bodywork
