These twins of the Mercedes-Benz super sports car from the 1950s present themselves rather differently, however:
Chassis number 43: the coupé is in “barn find” condition as found by Mercedes-Benz Classic in a garage at the end of 2018. It was originally shipped to Miami in 1954 and was only registered for ten years. The vehicle is completely original. The body, for example, the glass components, the grey leather interior, the drivetrain, the wheels – even the “Englebert Competition” tyres are all as you would have found them on the car decades ago. The only modification was to the body finish. Originally painted mid blue, the coupé was at some point sanded down and primed. What most likely happened was that the vehicle was taken out of service in the mid-1960s to be repainted and had been prepped, but never actually repainted.
