The car is already a rarity in the automotive world but to add the history involving the infamous Nazi dictator just adds to the allure of the vehicle.  

Worldwide Auctioneers says the car can be traced back to 1939.  

It can be seen in so many newsreels and photos of the dictator. The car has had some work done to the body and engine but the interior is mostly original.

John Kruse with Worldwide Auctioneers says the history of the car is interesting.  At the end of the second World War, the U.S. Army used the vehicle until it went through several owners including a VFW that used the car in parades.  

The Mercedes could bring in $5 million to $10 million. Ten percent of the proceeds will be used in Holocaust education.
