In 1946, Mercedes-Benz began using a single-model policy, as the pre-war 170 V was the only model for which usable tooling had survived the grueling World War II. The standard model was a four-door sedan. Numerous other versions followed, ranging from cabriolets to trucks. Another version of the 170 Da (diesel) OTP, also known as the Police Special. It was a four-door open tourer with a folding windshield. It was used by police agencies and other official organizations, including the newly formed Bundegrenzschutz (German federal border patrol). It was the first 170 model to have an outside trunk lid, which proved very useful and popular that it soon was adopted for the civilian market as well. Most of these 170 Da OTP models were painted Police Green, with blue adopted on later OTPs.

This particular example is the 452nd of 531 Police Specials constructed between 1948 and 1951. During its early history, it is believed to have been used by a U.S. serviceman to tour Europe. It was later exported to the United States.

The current caretaker has owned the car for around three decades. The car has been carefully preserved and maintained. It has much of its original finishes, including the factory-applied top and side curtains. The odometer shows just 42,740 kilometers. The engine is an overhead valve four-cylinder diesel unit displacing 1767cc and offering 40 horsepower. There are four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes and a four-speed manual transmission.
