1953 170SD - couple of questions

The first mercedes I ever rode in was a beautiful 170SD, 1953 . It is now stored in a garage. It is red and black with the nice tweed interior and wooden dash. The car has not been driven in a year although we used to drive it every weekend. What is the approx . value of a car like this? It is not concours nice but it is in great condition and I want to make certain it is insured properly if it actually has something other than sentimental value.

Thanks All

170SD, never heard of such a designation, so I had to look it up and sure enough 136.181 or 136.182 w/sunroof, or 136.183 ambulance, or 136.188 police car. Motor OM 636.931.

Opps, that was a 170S-D there also is a 170SD that is chassis 191.110 that has other versions including a station wagon. I bet that would be pretty valuable.

I really have no idea on their value, sorry.

Smile More Info

this is a link to a car just like the one I am inquiring about.

It has the best Mercedes smell I have ever smelled - maybe that increases the value ??
