The 300 Adenauer was the first Mercedes luxury car after WWII. The 170 and 220 series earned the company the money to develop newer models and the 300S continued in the tradition of the pre-war compressor cars. This guide was revised in March 2016 and covers the complete history of the 170V, 170S, 220, 300 and 300S with all their variations and coach-built versions. You will read about the 170S coupe, the 220 Haspel coupe and the equally rare Pininfarina 300 versions. The book explains in detail the cars' chassis number and the various codes on the data card. Like all other books by the author it comes richly illustrated with recent color photography and it shares with the reader the experience of drivng these cars either now or then. If you want to know more about the remarkable Mercedes cars of the early 1950s, then this book will surely interest you. Why is this book not available as hardcover? Even today with modern digital printing services available, books with many color photos are expensive to produce. This book comes with over 210 photos, many of them in color, and would cost retail as hardcover version over US$ 65 (or the corresponding amount in £ or e), which the author finds excessive. That is why the choice to offer the more reasonable to produce soft cover version. I hope you don't mind.
