Maybach SW38

Maybach automobiles were among the leading and most prestigious of German cars in the 1930s competing with Mercedes-Benz.

The Maybach SW38 was built from in Germany from 1936 to 1939. Total production was apparently around 520 cars. Very few of which are likely to still be around.

Power came from a 3.8 litre, 140hp inline six cylinder engine. The manual transmission offered five forward and one reverse gear.

Both the front and rear doors were hinged on the center column.

The individual front seats each have a robe rail and storage pocket on the rear of the backrest for the convenience of rear seat passengers.

The small retangular box units on each side of the windshield contain turn signal flasers that flip outward when activated.

The beautiful MM (Maybach-Motorenbau) hood ornament sits atop the radiator shell.

Dual sidemount spare tires are also featured on this particular car.
