1934 Mercedes-Benz 290 Cabriolet D: A Rare Original Find and the Ideal Basis for Restoration

This incredibly rare long-wheelbase Cabriolet D is an unrestored example of one of the four different four-door droptops offered on the 290. Quickly recognizable by its front and rear doors both being hinged on the B-pillar, it looks very much like a scaled down example of a 500/540K. Handsome and nicely proportioned, its understated black exterior complements nicely with its brown leather interior. Introduced in 1934, the Mercedes-Benz Type 290 featured a 2.9 liter engine and a revised front suspension among other improvements. Capable of a maximum speed of around 70-75mph depending on the style of coachwork fitted, the 290 was available in both short and long chassis variants, the latter affording coachbuilders greater freedom of expression. Mercedes-Benz ceased production of the 290 in 1936, by which time 3,476 short-wheelbase and 3,929 long-wheelbase cars had been built. Delivered new to Europe, this particular example represents a rare opportunity to acquire an open pre-WWII Mercedes.
