I guess this is one of the last Mercedes models (before it became Mercedes-Benz).

This is a strange looking Mercedes. It looks like a mix of old and new :think: Old v-type radiator fitted to a newer body ?

Your are right about the mix of old and new. The radiator and the headlights mounted on stalks are old - along with the skinny tyres. It looks like an early 1920s Mercedes (?) or maybe an early Mercedes-Benz S (??), rebodied in the 1930s. It was done to several Rolls-Royces so I presume that some Mercedes received the same treatment.

A picture of this car was published in " Mécanique Populaire " april 1951 page 46 in an article on Hollywood movie rental cars ( it must have been published in the US version Popular Mechanix somewhat earlier).This car belonged to the de Noria fleet of "Pacific-Auto", a company focusing on movie car rentals for the Hollywood studios such as Paramount Pictures and others.In the text it is said that it is a rebodied car on a chassis built during WWI which I doubt.It rather looks a late 1924 to 1926 Mercedes.I wonder if it is not a rebodied version of the 1924 15/70 100hp Mercedes that was used in "The Great Dictator" of 1940 with Charlie Chaplin , since " Pacific-Auto" rented this car along with the Chrysler Imperial in that movie.The exercise could have been done to give the car a more wwII look The article says that " Pacific-Auto"owned 3 Mercedes Benz so this obscures the situation.On the " Mécanique Populaire" picture the car has a huge spotlight mounted on the windshield frame and rear wheel fender skirts but it is this one with the large 3 point star motif on the grille.If some of our American friends know more about it I would be interested
