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).
