    Seeking pictures of a Mercedes 770

    Peter Spillner Newbie

      Hello, I am looking for pictures of a Mercedes 770 used by the German government during 1939 to 1945. I am restoring this car. I found this attached picture on the internet indicating it is from the US National Archives. Is it possible to help me find more pictures of this car? Thank you.

          Hi Peter,

          Welcome to History Hub

           

          Don't know if these will help in your mission, but found some photos by googling.

          Best Wishes in your restoration.

          My grandson works for a car restorer, they'd love to see that.
