The Mercedes-Benz 220 Cabriolet A

The Type 220 was presented to the world public at the first International Motor Show in Frankfurt in 1951. With the exception of the more powerful 2.2 ltr. engine with 80 hp, the Mercedes Benz 220 was largely based on the Type 170. In a press release from 1954, the advantages of the Type 220 become clear: "The road holding of the vehicle, the easy handling, the clarity, the manoeuvrability stamped the Type 220 as a fast and powerful, safe and easy to handle car of the middle class with increased demands". With only 1,278 units built, the Cabriolet A version was considerably rarer than the saloon. In May 1955, production of the W 187 series came to an end and was replaced by the Ponton Mercedes

Details I

According to the delivery sheet, the Mercedes-Benz 220 presented here was probably first delivered to Holland in 1952. Nothing is known about its whereabouts in the post-war years until it finally ended up with a German collector who had the car completely restored at great expense. We have a photo documentation of the restoration with almost 300 pictures!

Details II

The Mercedes is equipped with a complete set of luggage in a colour that matches the interior!
