Worldwide Vintage Autos is pleased to present this 1952 Mercedes 170S. A gorgeous, collector grade, German investment car. We scour the country for vintage cars and trucks like this and we rarely come across one like this! You must see and drive this rare Mercedes! A plethora of history and documentation included!
It is interesting that a Mercedes 170, once thought to be for the upper middle-class prior to World War II, has developed in Germany into a car for the rich after the war. But those were trying times and the upper middle-class just could not afford these cars at the end of the 1940s anymore. They either had older pre-war automobiles or new 1.2 l Ford or Opel. The rich usually bought an Opel Kapitän, which used a six-cylinder power-plant and could be purchased for 9,950. – DM ($ 2,360. – at 1950s exchange rate). It had in those days a huge sales lead over the four-cylinder Mercedes 170S, which had a price tag of 10,100. – DM ($ 2,400. -) at its introduction in 1949. That type of investment bought you in those days an eight-cylinder Packard in the US.

Own this vintage Mercedes at a fraction of the build cost. The cost of parts and restoration of these vehicles are increasing daily. They are not making any more and, therefore, they are becoming more rare by the day. Buy one complete and ensure your investment for the future. Doing a restoration / customization project on a Mercedes like this would cost over $50K not including the vehicle itself. Don't do the work yourself, get one finished for roughly half of the cost of building it yourself!
An excellent investment and something you can enjoy daily. Collectible vintage vehicles have historically appreciated at a rate greater than that stock market, gold and other arts and collectibles as documented by many articles and auction result tracking.

Due to our inventory size, we are unable to drive every vehicle for long distances. We also cannot guarantee that every gauge, light, option, function, etc., will work as it should. We do our best to inspect these vehicles in every detail, and note any imperfections in the advertisement. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT GUARANTEE ANY AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEMS, GAUGES, OR ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS. GIVEN THE NATURE OF THE VINTAGE VEHICLES WE SELL, THESE COMPONENTS CAN BE WORKING AT ONE MOMENT AND NOT WORKING AT ANOTHER MOMENT. IT IS COMMON THAT THESE COMPONENTS WILL NEED UPKEEP OR ATTENTION. IN ADDITION, MANY TIMES THESE VEHICLES SIT FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME AND ONCE YOU BEGIN TO DRIVE THEM SEALS HARDEN AND GASKETS MAY BEGIN TO LEAK! CLASSIC CARS LEAK. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THIS BEFORE BUYING A VINTAGE AUTOMOBILE.
We provide approximately 75 HD images, and an HD video, in every one of our listings. Very few companies offer this much detail. We spend significant time inspecting and disclosing detailed items on all of our vehicles; however, at the end of the day, we are not you... we highly suggest that you come and inspect the vehicle.
The information contained in this ad is solely for convenience. The description is an opinion only and should not be considered a complete description of any or all faults; it may not be relied upon nor taken as fact or otherwise a representation or warranty of any sort. Vehicles are sold AS-IS, WHERE-IS with all faults known/unknown and with no implied warranty.
We do not recommend driving a classic car home. Many classic cars are not driven often and tend to sit for long periods of time making them unsuitable for cross-country road trips. We strongly recommend shipping the vehicle.
Unless otherwise noted, we sell our vehicles mileage-exempt, meaning we do not know the actual, original miles. The information listed in the ad is based on the current odometer reading or from rebuild information provided by the builder, and cannot be used as fact.
Most of these vehicles do not have Carfax or Autocheck history reports; unless the vehicle is 1981 or newer, a Carfax or Autocheck history will not exist.
This vehicle is being sold by Worldwide Vintage Autos. All of our prices include a 60 temporary license plate, a clear Colorado title and VIN verification to ensure no surprises during the registration of your vehicle. We do not charge any additional dealer and handling fees!
