The Mercedes-Benz 170H was the successor to the 130H and was produced from 1935 through 1939 with a total of 1,507 examples built. Power was from a rear-mounted, water-cooled engine that displaced 1697cc and offered 38 horsepower. This engine was shared with the 170V, a conventional front-engined car. The 'H' represented 'Heck' or rear-engined while the 'V' stood for 'Vorn' or front engined. This particular example was purchased and imported into the United States by Warner Brothers. It has instrumentation in English measures. Coil springs replaced the torque-bar suspension and the engine was water cooled. There are leather seats, overdrive, and radio. It has a cabriolet limousine body, with an open top.
