1939 Mercedes Benz 170V, two-door. The two door is a rare car as the majority were 4-door, rarely if ever will you see a 2-door for sale.
BODY: The complete body was sandblasted to bare metal, and expoy primered to seal it for restoration. The body did have many tiny rust perforation on the bottom, the majority of these were brazed, or brass welded closed. final body work in these areas has not been done yet. The main floor and from cowling have been painted in a special black epoxy hard paint. Some wood work has been done in the body, the roof has had the wood bows stripped and new felt added to them where they contact the roof itself. Body work will need to be done where there are small dents all over the body. Both door shells have had repair work started, wood work done, and are ready for final body work if needed.
