"The car should be able to get back into a drivable condition with a thorough cleaning, overhaul and technical review. It’s a good basis for a renovation since everything except the wheels seems to be the original."

Description

This car came to Arvika scrapyard in the 1970s and was put away pending renovation. It’s a rare model that was only built for three years (1949-1951) and was then one of the finer M-B models. The condition of the body is ok and the interior and engine are original, a good starting point for renovation. The old Swedish registration plates remain and with a receipt of purchase, it is possible for a buyer to register the car again. Sold as a renovation object, unregistered. The motor cannot be turned over by hand.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
  • ATTENTION: Many of these cars are sold without valid Swedish registration documents, as spare parts.
