This 2nd, revised edition was published in January 2014 and covers the 170S W136 with its sedan and cabriolet variations. The book has over 60 unique photos, many of them non Daimler-Benz photos in color. The majority of the color pictures has never been published in a book before. The book is part of a series of e-books by Bernd S. Koehling about the cars Daimler-Benz built during the 1950s and 1960s.The author has over 20 e-books and books about Mercedes cars to his credit.In this book one can read about- the development of the 170S- the technical aspects- the cabriolets- the modernised 170Sb- the diesel- the 170S-V and S-D- the coachbuilders- the sales performance and- how it is to experience a 170S todayThe 170S had still many of its genes dating back to the early 1930s. And although it was only slightly bigger than its predecessor, the 170V, it was regarded by most people as a much superior vehicle. It was seen as a true executive car, especially with two beautiful cabriolets at its side. That image changed only after the introduction of the diesel, but at that time the 220 had already been launched.
