MERCEDES-BENZ 370 MANNHEIM

4-passenger saloon, 2-passenger saloon, saloon N, saloon C, cabriolet sport, cabriolet C, cabriolet D, roadster.

Three chassis variations here, the S (sport) with a 112ins wheelbase, K (kurz for short) with a 1191/2ins wheelbase and the standard 126ins. The sport in either sport cabrio or roadster form is very attractive, and with its twin carb engine good for 80mph. A more attractive pointed radiator and wires helped here, whereas the standard cars, with their flat rads and conservative styling, are fairly dull. Three speed and overdrive 'box standard on all but factory saloon.
