1939 Mercedes Benz W154 - Hydraulic Rear Suspension
Vintage Fest 2009 Limerock Park. Limerock,CT
Pictured here is the ground-breaking (for the time) DeDion rear suspension. Combining the benefits of independent suspension while negating the dangerous side effects of swing axles. It incorporated a complex and highly advanced system of hydraulics that allowed the driver to compensate for weight shift caused by fuel consumption between the fore and aft fuel tanks.
