Leading the entries is a 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540 K Coupe that has remained in the same family’s care since 1969.

Ordered new in 1937 by Brabender GmbH in Duisburg, Germany, the 540 K was delivered as a Cabriolet A with the striking coupe roof added in period by coachbuilder Hebmüller. Believed to be the only such 540 K converted by the German coachbuilder, the 540 K remained in Europe for several decades, and eventually appeared at a 1969 Denver auction, where the current owner’s father purchased it.
