Vehicle Description

Beautifully Restored. Numbers matching. Aluminum streamlined sport cabriolet. Coachwork by Wendler from a Cab D Mercedes Benz in 1945. The history and restoration work is well documented. Top speed 120kph. We have many photos of before, during and after restoration. This car was once owned by a famous Ballerina who entertained many in Germany before and during war times. The car was given to her as a gift. Wendler's first motor bodies were built in 1919, and they also supplied bodies for commercial trucks. Their portfolio is genuinely fascinating and includes many highly advanced streamlined designs on BMW, Mercedes-Benz and even Ford V8 chassis. Perhaps their most famous relationship was with Porsche, for whom Wendler bodied several road-going 356s in addition to creating the svelte coachwork for the legendary 550 Spyder, RSK, and RS61 racing cars.
