Originally it was a Mercedes-Benz 320 (W142), which received a new body from Wendler in 1940. The Mercedes 320 Wendler Cabriolet is technically still equipped like the original 320er. It has a 78 hp, 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine and thus achieves a top speed of just over 120 km / h.
In 1840 Erhardt Wendler founded his company in Reutlingen, which later specialized in coachbuilding. Together with the designer Helmut Schwandner, they designed American-style bodies and were thus very successful. The Wendler company designed and constructed for many well-known car manufacturers such as BMW, Porsche and, Mercedes-Benz bodies. Unfortunately, the company slipped into bankruptcy in 2000.
The vehicle comes from Konstanz and is now in Lithuanian possession. He was originally a gift to the prima ballerina Lilia Zeisner. The current owner of the strange and unique vehicle bought it from the Zeisner family and restored it in their own workshop in Lithuania.
