This is a car from 1934, a model 130 H by Daimler Benz.
The car was modified in the fifties (or later) to accommodate a driver with very short legs. The hood is from a Volkswagen.
The 130 H was the right choice as a rear engine gave the possibility to move forward the seat and the dashboard.
It was a very well done and we are actively researching the history of this car.
We bought the Mercedes
a few years ago from a movie studio in Los Angeles, and we imagine
that this car was modified for
a "Little Person" who was possibly an actor.
