AT EVERGREEN DIGITAL SHOWROOM, WE SAY THE RARE AND UNUSUAL IS THE NORMAL HERE! THIS 1939 STEYR 220 KABBRIOLETT IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THAT!
Debuting in 1937, the Steyr 220 was a product of the Stery-Daimler-Puch company of Austria and considered an extremely advanced design for the times. Offered in four body styles—a four door five passenger limousine, a four door five passenger Kabbriolett and a pair of two door Kabbriolett models with bodies from Glaser Coachworks in Dresden, Germany—the Steyr 220 was the last pre-war model offered by the company.
The mid-sized vehicle was powered by a 2.3L six-cylinder engine backed by a four-speed manual transmission. Featuring a lightweight rigid chassis and four-wheel independent suspension, the Steyr 220 would have been considered a performance car of the time capable of a top speed of 75 MPH (120 KPH). A total of 5,900 Steyr 220’s were manufactured over the four-year production run that ended in 1941 with the start of World War II, with no specific breakdown by body style. During that war, the Steyr 220 was a very popular vehicle among the top Nazi commanders and officers and one provided the transportation for one of the very few successful escapes from the famed German prison camp Auschwitz.
This Styer 220 Kabbriolett features red livery with a tan top and tan interior that presents very well for a vehicle of this era. With the front bucket seats, the 220 can accommodate five passengers. Showing 32,264 KM (20,047 miles) on the odometer, this car has been in the portfolio of a major collector/investor for over five years and stored in a humidity-controlled environment. Of the two Glaser Kabbriolett bodies offered in the 220, this is the sportier version as witnessed by the extremely small rear window and the longer doors giving more of a sweeping, streamlined appearance.

Because of the number of vehicles we represent we cannot drive every vehicle for long distances. These vehicles have been part of static displays for long periods of time, in some cases for decades, and are subject to the flaws and imperfections consistent with that. While we do our best to disclose all issues we known about a vehicle in our advertising, these are old cars and something that has always worked in the past might not function properly today. Please check the requirements of your state regarding the licensing and registration of classic vehicles and make sure the vehicle you are looking at meets those if applicable. Unless otherwise noted, all vehicles represented by Evergreen Digital Showroom possess a clean (non-branded) title which will be provided the new buyer when purchase funds clear our financial institution. Virtually all of our vehicles are sold as mileage exempt due to their age. We do not warranty any vehicle, nor any part of the vehicle including air conditioning systems, brake systems, electrical systems and gauges, fuel systems, accessories or powertrain components.
These are old vehicles and it is very common for them to require certain maintenance and upkeep for them to be operational. In many cases issues with leaks may develop when being driven after a long period of not being used. This is common, as classic cars at some point will leak fluids. For this reason, we do not encourage buyers to attempt driving their purchase home as we cannot guarantee functional reliability of these vehicles. We strongly encourage prospective buyers to be sure they are comfortable with these issues before purchasing a classic car.
Descriptions of vehicles represented by Evergreen Digital Showroom are intended to be informational in nature and do not in any way constitute any sort of warranty, expressed or implied. Again, these vehicles are presented “as-is, where-is” without guarantee or warranty. Vehicles manufactured prior to 1981 will likely not be included in the databases of companies such as CarFax and AutoCheck that provide vehicle history information to consumers. If you have specific questions regarding a vehicle we urge you to contact us at 417-532-8000.
