Hot Solution

The car pictured is a chopped and rodded 1952 Mercedes-Benz 170sb (W138) done by ‘your friendly Hyundai specialist’ Autohaus Heiko brews (whatever that means) in Korbach, Germany who apparently is not only a Hyundai dealer but also specializes in building custom hot rods and restoring classic cars.

In 1991, incomplete, badly decayed fragments of the car were purchased in hopes for a ground up, original restoration but unfortunately too much of the car was missing. As always, with problems come solutions and the solution this time was to create a hot rod, one of the most unique I’ve seen.

Obviously, the parts that were still intact had to be sandblasted, primed and painted, the fenders were widened and adapted to fit new tires, and the top was chopped by 3-inches. They also cut a huge hole in the top of the roof and installed a sliding electric sunroof to make it even more unique.

In place of the non-savable motor, a 200hp Alfa Romeo V6. Front brakes are from a Mercedes SLC and back brakes from an Audi A8. It has the original hubs on new rubber and a hand-made interior.

I’m not sure if anything more sublime exists, but if it does, I’d be surprised. Just happy it wasn’t ratted out.

It just didn’t match up. The eyes are too perfectly cartoonish. So I started looking at it and the hand gave it away along with how bold the eyes are. Look at the fingers on the hand and you’ll see curves that don’t match up with how good the curves on the eyes are. I have no idea how I noticed that either.
