Footnotes

  • Mercedes-Benz's 230 was the latest evolution of Hans Nibel's original 170 design, featuring a box-section frame with independent suspension all round; four-wheel hydraulic brakes; and a newly enlarged 55bhp six-cylinder sidevalve engine. It was an unusually advanced small automobile for its era, and would become one of the most popular Mercedes-Benz models of the time. In more recent decades the 230 has been overshadowed by the large supercharged eight-cylinder models, and so to find an example that has been fully restored, especially an elegant limousine model, is rare.

    The 230 Limousine A offered here is well presented and has the schiebedach, or sliding fabric sunroof, which opens up the entire interior so that both driver and passengers can enjoy fresh air and sunshine. The body has been restored to its original factory standard, with generally good brightwork and paint. Noteworthy features include a mirror spotlight, trafficators, and dual side-mounted spares, the latter adding a touch of elegance. The interior is upholstered in black leather in good condition, with matching carpeting, beige fabric headliner, and nicely varnished original woodwork surrounding restored instruments.

    A charming and well-presented 'small' Mercedes-Benz of its era, this car would make a fine counterpoint to the 500 K or 540 K in one's collection. It has its own distinctive charm and fine style, and would provide a wonderful driving experience for its new owner.

    VAT will be payable on the Hammer Price and Buyer's Premium at the standard rate if the car remains in Switzerland.

    Mercedes-Benz 230 limousine A 1941
    Châssis n° 129874

    Moteur n° 91348

    •Modèle Mercedes-Benz historique et populaire
    •Restauration bien préservée
    •Rarement vue dans un tel état de restauration
    •Roues de secours latérales recherchées

    La Mercedes-Benz 230 était la dernière évolution de la 170 originale de Hans Nibel, avec châssis échelle à suspension indépendante et freins hydrauliques aux quatre roues et un nouveau six cylindre latéral réalésé de 55 ch. C'était une petite voiture inhabituellement sophistiquée pour l'époque qui allait devenir l'un des modèles Mercedes-Benz les plus populaires de son temps. Dans les années qui suivirent, la 230 fut éclipsée par les modèles huit cylindres à compresseur et trouver un exemplaire entièrement restauré, et plus spécialement une élégante limousine, est très rare.

    La 230 limousine A proposée ici se présente bien avec son schiebedach, un toit coulissant en toile qui s'ouvre sur toute la longueur, afin de le conducteur et ses passagers puissent profiter du grand air et du soleil. La carrosserie a été restaurée aux standards d'origine et arbore une peinture et des chromes brillants. Les accessoires incluent un rétroviseur-phare, des flèches de direction et une double roue de secours qui apporte une touche supplémentaire d'élégance. L'intérieur est tendu de cuir noir en bon état avec moquette assortie, ciel de toit en tissu beige et des boiseries d'origine délicatement vernis, ainsi que des instruments restaurés.

    Charmante « petite » Mercedes-Benz de son époque de belle présentation, cette voiture fera un parfait contrepoint à une 500 K ou une 540 K dans une collection. Elle a son propre charme et son style personnel et procurera un grand plaisir de conduite à son nouveau propriétaire.

    La TVA sera due sur le prix d'adjudication et la prime acheteur au taux courant si le véhicule reste en Suisse.
