My Favorite Mercedes: 1938 Oddball: The 130H

As seen on Park Street in Calcutta, being waxed for The Statesman car show: The 130H, Mercedes' bid for a Beetle-like 'people's car'. WWII intervened.

The next day, all dolled up, it emerged from the show at Ft. William and buzzed away, across the Maidan.

Extremely rare. Runs like a top. Note working semaphores!
