Default W143 230 Cabriolet

This stunning W143 230B is currently for sale with Dutton's in Melbourne. Not posting add just pictures claims to be 1936 but information I have found was released 1937 . Powered by a M143 inline 6 with sidevalves and dual barrel solex carburetor producing 58hp. With Independent suspension and a 4 speed manual transmission.

This is a pretty impressive car. There can't be too many pre-war Mercedes in Australia outside perhaps some 170 sedans.
