1937 Mercedes-Benz 540 K Coupe. This 540 K was delivered new to Germany as a Cabriolet A with the striking coupe roof added in period by Hebmüller, believed to be the only such 540 K converted by the German coachbuilder. The 540 K remained in Europe for several decades, eventually appearing at auction in Denver in 1969, from which the current owner’s father purchased the car and drove it home to Nebraska, where it has remained ever since.
In the early 1970s the car was taken to compete in a local car show, where it shockingly lost Best of Show to a freshly restored John Deere Tractor. Vowing never to show the car again, the owner parked the car in his garage for the next forty-some years. With its whereabouts having been largely unknown, the 540 K is now available for the first time since 1969..
