We saw this beautiful and highly desirable 1939 Steyr 220 Cabriolet (Chassis No. CC2794S) at the 2018 Salon Privé. We just wanted to highlight this car to you, as it’s exceptional, and my car heaven. I hope you love it as much as we do. Just superb in every way. We love it.
This avant-garde Steyr 220 began life in November 1938 as a rolling chassis, built in the Steyr-Daimler-Puch factory in Austria, from where it was transported to respected German coachbuilder Gläser-Karosserie in Dresden to be fitted with its hand-crafted streamlined Cabriolet coachwork, of which no two bodies were the same. After leaving the Gläser works in March 1939, this particular automobile was displayed at that year’s Berlin Motor Show, where the 2.2-litre Steyr was bought by the Austrian consul for Latvia. After the war, the car belonged to the famous Russian surgeon and politician Viktor Kalnberzsm before the present owners purchased the unrestored Roadster in 1994. The all-steel bodied Steyr then underwent an extensive 20 year restoration. Each component was restored strictly in accordance to original documents and designs, with every single part of the vehicle thoroughly examined, cleaned and repaired to recreate this striking, rare and unique motor car.
