Type Grosser Mercedes

[I had digressed on page 3 re a Type and now have so much on it and others it has become a separate topic on its here. — 02 Feb 05]

A specific Grosser Mercedes 770K . the one found near the Berghof at and presented to General Charles de is now in Florida and about to undergo any information about this car or similar restorations or parts will be very much by the present owner (contact me ). The critical item is a distributor to buy (or as a pattern). This particular is pictured in the lower right on page 227 of Jan Melin’s Volume I; the is Z 96-501 .

I found my mint of the 1933 NSDAP (Nazi) flack book Deutschland , with dozens of hand-tipped many with 770Ks, of course, this car isn’t one of (it hadn’t been built — I scanned and posted all of with M-B cars below.

How I realized that I have a 770K! It was never on display, is in its original packing, and is magnificent! It is by Rio in and is gun-metal gray (in spite of the It is described on the box as #21, 1938 mercedes — 8 cil. cmc. 7.700 (scoperta)*, 1938 Grand (Grosser) 8 cylinders, cc 770 (discovery)*.

With the (one-piece) hood (bonnet) removed, the big 7.7 straight 8 is revealed in all its 7/8 (22.2mm) external pipes and all. Rio modeled the steering gear and the fan and fan although it will be a real to try to photograph these details and the dash and controls. The registration front and rear, is 1A 148485 .

One can logically assume 1937 vs. 1938 makes no difference whatsoever and that is the scale (1:43), not the year 1943, no matter how appropriate might seem). Further, the translation of scoperta to discovery some work; it could mean detection or serendipity, of which helps much,

Oh, good grief; not only is the fully-modeled, the front and rear axles are each independently on miniature coil springs! all that attention to (quite-literally) in a model measuring only (14cm) long, one might expected Rio to have the hubcaps with the wheels and the hood lift separately; it would been so easy to arrange, as my Chinese model of the 1932 Imperial 8 Le Baron Phaeton (at the scale) has.

On top of all that, I inside the Rio box a gummed foil to simulate chrome pillars the windows, with a miniature, instruction sheet:

Hitler’s Mercedes-Benzes

The foregoing of what may very well been Adolf Hitler’s car is in no way intended to glorify the man but only to the car itself. Similarly, Hitler many Mercedes-Benz cars his meteoric rise to power and he them very well He had the good sense or good (unfortunately) to use open cars so he was accessible to the people (those he to be accessible for), mostly K and Grosser cars, although appear low enough that might have been S or SS I finally found my copy of the Nov Nazi propaganda book, Erwacht ; that means Awoken, and is a play on the original (National Socialistisches Deutsches Partei — National German Labor Party Nazi) slogan, Deutschland exhorting Germany Awake.

This is simply I finished up posting the Deutschland photos above in the evening of 04 Dec and the of 05 Dec 2005 and that very got a call from Gary J. Curator of MOMENTS IN TIME P.O. Box 37, Washingtonville, New York 845-496-6699 (FAX 845-496-6367), he had the purchase documents for Hitler’s 29 Jan order #43966 for a Model 6-cylinder 4/5-passenger Mercedes-Benz for

The 6-cylinder 15/70/100 is a far smaller car the 8-cylinder 24/100/140 or 24/160/200 or K or but it is still a more-than-respectably-large-enough car to impress the for comparison, the 6.8l. and 7.1l. S and SS were 26/120/180, 33/220, and 36/250 cars.

They turn out to be for Hitler’s car plus an apparently-undated (Nazi Party) order, by Hitler, for a 4-door 6/7-passenger tourer for Berlin; they may be for cars shown above.
