In tackling such projects, Mercedes-Benz Classic is able to refer to the original specifications and production documents, all of which can be found in the company’s own archives. This approach helps to reinforce the brand’s competence as a manufacturer of spare parts for pre-war classic models.
The reproduced parts meet the highest quality standards in every single respect and, of course, come with the usual warranty. Work on the reproduction parts was undertaken in conjunction with the original suppliers or – where this was no longer possible – with selected specialist companies.
The concern for authenticity is illustrated, for example, by the story behind the twin distributor cap: this is made, as it ever was, out of the plastic material Bakelite. The manufacturing process is a complex one and demands considerable technical expertise, but the result is an extremely durable distributor cap with excellent insulation properties.
