Mercedes 230 W153

For sale: Mercedes 230 W153 1939  

The Mercedes Benz 230 W153 is today a very rare car. The production numbers is a little unclear debated by specialists. Owever, it is safe to say there are not many cars like this around today. I am sure many of them died during the war, or they were simply not worth restoring at the time.

The production period for this six cylinder luxury sedan was between 1938-1943. Looking similar to Mercedes W143 but with the new tubular subframe. The 230 W153 were also produced in different convertible bodies. The production ended in 1943, but the same or very similar body was later used in 170S, but with a smaller engine.

Exterior: Fantastic paintwork in a spectacular color combination! The finish of the paint is very close to perfect and all chrome details are of superior quality. The sliding Webasto roof in “Sonnenland” quality in matching color with the car.

Interior: From factory these cars had a cloth interior and during the restoration this was updated to very exclusive leather interior that still today looks like new. Carpets, headliner etc have the same high standard. All instruments look very nice and are in working order. It even has an original suitcase set in the trunk, and also this is in fantastic condition.

Engine: During the restoration also the engine was dismantled and everything was checked. It is hard to say today what parts were put new since the receipts are missing. But the engine has normal sound and oil pressure.

History: Sold new in Sweden in 1939 by Förenade bil in Malmö to the founder of the company Luxor radio in Motala. It was then cancelled from the registry in 1962, but was found in a barn near Avesta in 1996. Then a restoration was started and this was completed in 2012. Copies of owners manual, first registration documents are present. Please note that this Mercedes 230 W153 1939 was delivered with the Webasto sliding sunroof, and this is very rare for the model.
