Maybach has always held a reputation for designing luxury cars that are as exclusive as they are expensive. The Type SW 38 was introduced in 1936. This was the final model to be released before the war, and was available in three versions of the straight six engines, a 3.5 liter, 3.8 liter and a 4.2 liter. The world was stunned by the Maybach SW 38, which was capable of reaching speeds of more than 120 mph, a speed considered 'blinding' during the era.

Available in various body types, as was typically standard with pre-war cars, the SW was available in both Sedan and Cabriolet. A total of 520 models were built between 1936 and 1939 and only around 152 of these Maybachs are known to exist today.

Owned by the same family since the 1950's. This vehicle underwent a complete restoration to original specifications from 1993 to 1997 by Dave Harp Vintage Restorations in Las Vegas, Nevada and won First Prize when first shown at Pebble Beach in 1997. The car also won Best of Show at the Santa Barbara Concours d'Elegance in 1999.
