1946 Mercedes-Benz 170V Pickup

39,000 €

Rare opportunity! Here HK-Engineering offers an original Mercedes-Benz 170V pickup / flatbed truck in good condition. In May 1946, Mercedes-Benz launched its first pickup truck, the 170 V pickup (internally W 136 l), onto the market during a period of reconstruction.
It was based on the 1935 introduced model and was the first vehicles whose production resumed Mercedes after the war. It was not until the following year that the sedan 170 V was produced again.
Our pickup was produced according to the data card in 1953 and delivered as a company car following the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant! After that, unfortunately, the track of the history of this vehicle loses. In the middle of the eighties the pickup was bought by a man from Murnau in Upper Bavaria and lovingly and faithfully restored over several years. The Mercedes was then admitted in 1989 and occasionally used for exits before he was logged out in May 1990. From that time on he was only sporadically used with red number and served mainly as an exhibit. Even today, the pickup presents itself with an incredibly charming charisma. The Mercedes shines with great paint and overall very good condition. The technology works flawlessly and the car drives without any problems. For the sake of order, however, we point out that an inspection and replacement of wearing parts such as e.g. Tires for a permanent use would be necessary.
The Mercedes 170 V pickup was built until 1946 with a quantity of only 1,098 vehicles (including 440 police patrol cars).
Get this rare, charming piece of automotive postwar history as an advertising medium or as a great eye-catcher in a collection!

The only company worldwide dedicated solely to the restoration of the exclusively valuable Mercedes-Benz 300 SL. Serving for the past 25 years with intelligence, dedication and enthusiasm. Entrepreneur, director and world-renowned expert in the automotive icon with the trademark star, is Hans Kleissl. Hardly anyone else has such a wealth of knowledge, experience, and passion. Being a classic car enthusiast and collector himself led to his founding of HK-ENGINEERING. „He's one of us,” is the common opinion among his customers. HK-ENGINEERING is set in a lovingly restored monastery in the Bavarian village of Polling, with an additional branch in the Berlin Classic Remise. Further partners and representatives are located outside of German borders, listed in detail under the heading „Contact.“ HK-ENGINEERING is well-established. Throughout years of service in Kleissl's SL workshop, mechanical engineers have made technical contributions to the sustainable conservation of this unique Mercedes model series. As a result, while it previously took at least a year to bring a Gullwing or Roadster back to its original glory, the mechanics in Polling can now finish an entire „resurrection” of a 300 SL in only six to nine months. HK-ENGINEERING offers its clients restoration of nearly all original parts: from refurbishing old leathers to matching original body paint. Of course, they are also able to restore classic Mercedes-Benz cars from the ground-up. Since 1995, HK-ENGINEERING has operated its own racing team. To date they've built a dozen SLS-type cars. „While others speak of their great technical competence, we prove ours on the track,“ boasts Hans Kleissl. Aside from the vast technical expertise, Kleissl is deeply involved in the social aspect of the 300 SL series. He has served on the board of directors for the 300 SL club of Germany for more than ten years. More than fifty 300 SL automobiles are currently in the Polling establishment. To meet the ever-growing demand, the team of HK-ENGINEERING has grown to more than forty employees.
