A really stange looking rear end on this one. :) almost looks like a big Austin A30 :?
This is one of the few coupe prototype designed by Mercedes Benz and assembled in Argentina under the supervision of Juan M Fangio (five times F1 world champion).
It has a 4 cylinder diesel engine, 4 speeds manual transmission.
Body and paint in very good shape, interior in leather and in great condition.

Interesting car, first problem is that the basis of the car is a 170Da, these were only made up until 1951. (car is reported as a 1953) The wiper pivots are at the top of the screen, the gauges are in the middle of the dash and the front guards are most definatly the early version.
