The first year was 1936, I think.

Pre-war cars were probably the only real possibility to own a Mercedes in the GDR.

No, this was always somehow possible. Of course only for the poeople, who had real money (D-Mark) and good connections. The whole DDR-times Mercedes were delivered into the DDR, more or less official (the economy-minister https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%BCnter_Mittag even had a 450 SEL 6.9)
Until 1972, when there was the last big socialization of mid-sized private owned companies, there were even some single Mercedes-authorized garages left over. As a few Opel- and Fiat-garages they all were left-overs from pre-WWII-times and not listed any more in the Daimler-Benz-dealers-files (and since the 13.8.1961 without spare parts-supply), but some stayed alive for many years.

In fact Mercedes appeared not really rarely in the DDR. The topic "Western cars in the DDR" is very interesting and two fellows in my plate-forum are collecting all kind of informations abot that. One guy think, maybe to write a book about it.
