DISCLAIMER my interest in Mercedes/Daimler-Benz, whil(e)(st) encompassing, is primarily in the S and SS series of the 1920s and early 1930s; is not intended to be a full-blown history or of the Mercedes marque. —

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) model (bonnet) removed, the big 7.7 lit(er)(re) 8 is revealed in all its 7/8 (22.2mm) glory, pipes and all. Rio even the steering gear and the fan and fan belt, it will be a real bear to try to these details and the full and controls. The registration number, and rear, is 1A 148485 .

* — ony one little problem with — the underside of the model is in relief (cast in) MERCEDES CABRIOLET 1937 and #1/43. One can assume that 1937 vs. makes no visual difference and that 1/43 is the scale not the year (Jan 1943, no how appropriate that might Further, perhaps the translation of to discovery needs some it could also mean or serendipity, neither of which much, here.

Oh, good not only is the underside fully-modeled, the and rear half axles are independently sprung on miniature springs! With all that to (quite-literally) detail in a model only 5½ (14cm) one might have expected Rio to the hubcaps turn with the and the hood panels lift it would have been so to arrange, just as my Chinese of the 1932 Chrysler Imperial 8 Le Phaeton (at the same scale)

On top of all that, I discovered inside the Rio box a foil sheet to simulate pillars between the windows, a miniature, illustrated instruction

There is also a fact The fact sheet includes a history of the type and a specifications in Italian, English, German, and I have scanned the sheet at resolution, copying the header (in and the English text only only 4 x 3¾ / 10mm x and offer it here as a thumbnail clicking on which which bring up the full sheet to down and as separate history and (mis-spelled Tecnical Items)

The English from Italian (or German?) is to say the least. The 1931 predecessor type is very similar to the K and types noted above but the larger 7.7 l. engine. Similarly, the W-150 / 770K is stylistically and much like an overgrown

Hitler’s Mercedes-Benzes

The coverage of what may very have been Adolf last car is in no way intended to glorify the man but to record the car itself. Similarly, used many Mercedes-Benz throughout his meteoric rise to and he used them very indeed. He had the good sense or advice (unfortunately) to use open so that he was accessible to the people he wished to be accessible for), K and 770K Grosser cars, some appear low enough they might have S or SS models. I finally found my of the Nov 1933 Nazi propaganda Deutschland Erwacht ; that Germany Awoken, and is a play on the NSDAP (National Socialistisches Arbeits Partei — Socialist German Labor — Nazi) slogan, Erwachen, exhorting Germany The book is very much to glorify the Fьhrer (Fuehrer Leader), the Nazi Party, and the Reich. All the hundreds of photos in the are hand-tipped; it was NOT a casual political So, let’s see the cars and how they used (I have included the German captions and my translation of and the pictures are in more-or-less chronological from the earliest of 1924 the last of 1933 — that some have windscreens and some have windcreens):

It is not at all to find that Reich empire. The Reichsfьhrer (leader of the was a maniac, a mass murderer, and a but, oh, what cars he had at his

This is simply incredible; I up posting the Deutschland Erwacht above in the evening of 04 Dec and the morning of 05 Dec and that very afternoon got a from Gary J. Zimet, of MOMENTS IN TIME INC.. Box 37, Washingtonville, New York 10992, (FAX 845-496-6367), that he had the documents for Hitler’s 29 Jan 1929 #43966 for a Model 15/70/100 4/5-passenger Mercedes-Benz for Munich!

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.

The full can be seen at Gary’s site but he me permission to show you them (I have drastically cropped to save memory, by omitting of the boiler-plate). 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.
