1930 Mercedes?...If not...what is it?

Recommended Posts

Back around 1974 my uncle saw this car up in Connecticut.  It appears to be about a 1930 Mercedes from the  radiator cap.

I have wondered what has happened to this car....does anyone know????

Maybe someone can decipher the license plate....

I google '1930 Mercedes' and nothing like it shows up in the Images section.

Yes, 1st generation M-B 170 with conventional ladder chassis. Introduced at the 1931 Paris Motor show, in this form produced upto 1934. Rear swing axle and hydraulic brakes; 13775 were made including the improved 1935-1936 Model. Rare today.

Yes rare.  You see a few of the later cars,  but as an econobox they were used up and throw away.
