SIGNATURE MODELS - 1950 MERCEDES BENZ 170S

1950 Mercedes 170s Soft Top Diecast Car Model 1/32 Gray Die Cast Car by Signature Models


Shifting through the ashes of World War II, Mercedes Benz found uts was left with the tooling for only its 170 model its mass market car. Although still sporting the pre-war body styles, the 1950 170S and its sister, the 170D, with its diesel engine, showed the progress the company was making to reclaim its right to be called on the world's best automakers. The performances of both engines were boosted by an increase in displacement. Meanwhile, handling and safety were improved by the addition of telescopic shock absorbers, a wider rear axle track and the use of more effective brakes. Comfort was not neglected, either, with seats enlarged and the interior of the passenger compartment widened. Access to the trunk was also improved and molding was added to the front windows to protect passengers from drafts. The post-war 170 models were finally retired in 1955 with 153,475 built.

Tax time is coming up again and you're trying to find all the tax deductible items that you can get so you can get as much back as possible.
