Looks pretty cool! Too bad its right hand drive. I could see myself tooling around town in that. There was a similar one about a year back for sale.

These are very easy to change to LHD, it's a bolt-on arrangement. In those days they were all made that way.

Some the technology and parts from the W136 models (which started in the mid 1930s) stayed around until the 1980s!

MB doesn't throw a good thing away for the sake of change.
