1930 Mercedes 770K W07 By Voll & Ruhrbeck. Ex King of Iraq.



Chassis number: 83807

Registration Number: USA



This 1930 Mercedes-Benz 770K is one of 117 W07 examples built between 1930 and 1938. Chassis 83807 was ordered new by King Faisal I of Iraq and was fitted with four-door, three-position cabriolet bodywork by Voll & Ruhrbeck of Berlin, Germany, in early 1931. It remained an Iraqi state car during the reign of both King Ghazi and King Faisal II.



1967, and it was shipped to a prominent USA collection via Beirut and Baltimore. A refurbishment was performed in the 1970s, and the car later participated in F1 USGP pre-race vintage car parades from 2002 through 2007 as well as several IPL 500 Festival parades.



It is finished in black over red leather upholstery, and power comes from a numbers-matching supercharged 7. 7-liter inline-eight paired with a three-speed manual transmission. Features include a three-position tan soft top with a removable forward roof as well as dual fender-mounted spare wheels, rear-hinged front doors, a left-side spotlight, a crank-operated cabin partition, rear jump seats, and a thermometer and barometer mounted on the rear bulkhead.



This is a very very special car with no dark history in its past, being of Royal provenance from new. We also have 2 other 770K open tourers quietly for sale & one closed Innerlenker example. Details on all are available upon request. The car has just come out of the ownership of the USA based collection after residing there for close to 50 years. Rarely available this car is a wonderful opportunity to acquire one of the finest cars produced by Mercedes.
