•Delivered new in Germany

•An older restoration
•Registered in Portugal

From the time of the merger of Daimler and Benz in 1926 until the advent of technical director Hans Nibel's advanced 170 model in 1931, it was the Stuttgart that comprised the bulk of Mercedes-Benz production. Built in 2.0-litre (200) and 2.6-litre (260) forms, the Stuttgart was a well-engineered if rather conventional car that represented the last of the old technology rather than the first of the new. A six-cylinder sidevalve engine provided the power, while the channel-section chassis featured live axles and mechanical brakes. The gearbox was a three-speed unit with floor change; the radiator was flat-fronted, and the steel wheels were of the artillery type. Top speed of the 200 was in the region of 80km/h (50mph). Total production of the Stuttgart 200 had amounted to 6,450 cars when the model was dropped in 1933.

This Mercedes-Benz Stuttgart cabriolet was delivered new via the Daimler-Benz agency in Chemnitz, Germany in February 1932. The car is finished in a two-tone blue and ivory, with dark blue seats, matching carpeting and a dark blue fabric convertible hood. An older restoration that still presents well, it boasts several attractive features including cowl-mounted trafficators, a driver's side spotlight with mirror, and steel artillery wheels. The car is offered with Portuguese registration papers.

•Deutsche Erstauslieferung
•Seltenes Cabriolet
•Eine ältere Restaurierung
•In Portugal zugelassen

Seit dem Zusammenschluss der Firmen Daimler und Benz im Jahre 1926 bis zur Einführung des vom technischen Direktor Hans Nibel entwickelten, fortschrittlichen 170 im Jahre 1931 war der Stuttgart das Massenmodell aus dem Hause Mercedes-Benz. Er wurde mit einem 2 Liter (200) und einem 2.6 Liter Motor (260) angeboten und war ein solide gebautes, konventionelles Automobil – eher ein letzter Vertreter alter Technik als ein neuer Technologieträger.

Ein seitengesteuerter Sechszylinder sorgte für den Antrieb, das U-Form Fahrgestell verfügte über Starrachsen und mechanische Bremsen, Gangwechsel erfolgten über ein Dreiganggetriebe, vor dem Motor war ein Flachkühler montiert und er fuhr auf Stahlspeichenfelgen. Die Höchstgeschwindigkeit lag bei 80 km/h. Insgesamt wurden bis zum Auslauf der Produktion im Jahre 1933 6.450 Exemplare des Stuttgart 200 gebaut.

Dieses Stuttgart Cabriolet wurde über die Chemnitzer Mercedes-Benz Vertretung im Februar 1932 ausgeliefert und ist zweifarbig in blau und elfenbein lackiert, mit dunkelblauen Sitzen, Teppichen und einem dunkelblauen Stoffverdeck. Die ältere Restaurierung steht immer noch gut da, und der Wagen ist mit einigen interessanten Details wie den Winkern, einem Suchscheinwerfer mit Rückspiegel sowie Stahlspeichenfelgen ausgestattet. Der Wage wird mit portugiesischen Zulassungspapieren angeboten.
