Cabriolet
Coachwork: Castagna
The Mercedes-Benz S and SS models were among the top luxury cars in the late 1920s and many were bodied by the best coachbuilders of the day. Carrozzeria Castagna was a popular choice for wealthy Europeans who wanted a car with bodywork that was beautiful yet understated.

This particular Mercedes-Benz SS Castagna Tourer has simple lines on the exterior but a very luxurious interior. The car appears to be at speed even when at rest, due to the rakish slant of the front doors and the rear section of bodywork - and this perception is further accentuated by the length of the hood. The car is believed to have been owned at one time by the jazz singer Al Jolson. It has been in The Keller Collection since 1980, and it won its class at Pebble Beach in 1989.
