Models of Yesteryear Y-10/2; 1928 Mercedes-Benz 36-220 Models of Yesteryear

Scale: 1:52

The car was equipped with a huge six cylinder single overhead camshaft engine with twin ignition. This consisted of both battery ignition and magneto ignition. You could run it on either or both. There were twelve spark plugs, six on each side. It had twin carburettors and a kompressor. The kompressors on these cars were not like ordinary superchargers as they were used more like a passing gear. If you came up on someone and wanted to get by in a hurry you mashed the accelerator to the floor, the kompressor kicked in, frightened the hell out of the guy in front of you and you screamed by. Once past, you throttled off and things were back to normal, if driving a Mercedes-Benz S could ever be considered normal.

It was always white in the core range with either red or black seats however it was also produced in the giftware range in vacuum plated chrome. The white car has a folded hood as part of the seat unit which is red or black, the hood is not present on the plated car. The other variation is either single or twin spare wheels on the boot.

Models with black seats are from the first 1963 release and are very rare indeed and very valuable as a result
