III. Carrera Panamericana 1952 #6
1952 Mercedes-Benz participated in the III. Carrera Panamericana in Mexico with three cars and a legendary result. Car #4 driven by Karl Kling and car #3 driven by Hans Klenk won the race.
This car with #6 was driven by John C. Fitch and was the only spyder in the team. It was disqualified after the penultimate stage of the race due to suspect reasons. John should have taken help from outside while adjusting his wheel alignment.
A special Accessory on this car was the added enhanced windshield, which was necessary to protect „Long Tall John“.
I built this car some years ago from a resin kit and wanted to build it one more time, but as close as possible to the original shape, so I remodeled a master and used modern technology to redesign a kit.
