The Mercedes-Benz W 111 series was produced from 1959 to 1968 and was the chassis code that determined its top-range vehicles. This included four-door saloons with two-door coupés and cabriolets being produced from 1961 to 1971. Design of a replacement for the two-door Pontons began in 1957 as most of the chassis and drive train were to be unified with the saloon with the emphasis on the exterior styling. Some of the mock-ups and prototypes show that Mercedes-Benz attempted to give the two-door car a front styling similar to the Pagoda roadster. The rear bodywork persisted however and, as such although officially still called a 'fintail', the rear end design had no chrome fin highlights. Production began in late 1960 and in February of the next year, the coupé was premiered in Stuttgart for the 75th anniversary of the opening of Mercedes-Benz Museum. This highly collectable example is presented in classic Mercedes-Benz white with a contrasting black leather interior, the condition of both can safely be described as very good throughout. The reason being is that this example underwent a partial restoration in 2008 which included a complete strip down (interior out) to bare metal and

In 1951, Mercedes introduced its 220 series. Together with the flagship 300 series, these were the first post-war Mercedes with a complete new and cutting-edge 6-cylinder engine. Sporty performance, a comfortable ride and an superb looking bodywork. What else would you looking for? You could choose between the 220 Limousine, the 220 Cabriolet A (2 + 2), the Cabriolet B (4 seater) and the 220 Coupe that was inspired by the Cabriolet A. The car we show you here, is in our opinion the prettiest of them all: the Cabriolet A. With its elegant back, streamlined headlights and beautiful colour combination, it is a very desirable car. Only 1278 Cabriolet ‘A’s were ever produced before the Mercedes Ponton took over, With many lost over the years this makes it really quite a rare car indeed. Very reliable, more than enough room for luggage and a very willing engine, this is your ideal partner for a Sunday trip as well for a rally to Italy. The car is completely restored with a great of eye for detail. Very easy starting and great reliability making this a perfect car to drive with confidence for a long trip. The car comes complete with the original jack, spare wheel, etc and is completely matching numbers. If you fancy a nice convertible you can enjoy over the coming summer, this is the car to have! http://www.historic-competitionservices.eu/nl/mercedes-220-a-cabriolet-w187-1954
The Mercedes-Benz 220 A was succeeded in March 1956 by the 220 S saloon which was externally almost identical but had an upgraded version of the six cylinder, 2195cc engine giving 99hp which was later increased to 106hp due to the use of twin carburettors. Introduced in 1956, the 220 S saloon was one of a trio of new models featuring unitary construction bodyshells employing large, box-section side members, hence the term 'Ponton'; the others being the 190 and 219. All round coil-sprung independent suspension had long been a fixture of the Mercedes-Benz range and that of the newcomers benefitted from the newly developed single pivot rear swing axle. Short-wheelbase coupé and cabriolet versions of the 220 S soon followed. Visually, the 220 S featured a new one piece front bumper instead of the three-piece bumper used on the 220 A. Also, the twin chrome and rubber strips running under the doors of the 220 A were replaced with solid chrome strips. This delightful 220 S Ponton, offered in black with a red leather interior, has been on display at Mercedes-Benz World since 2008. Delivered new to South Africa, this righthand drive example was purchased from its original owner and then tak
--Light Pastel Blue with Blue MB Tex interior and Blue carpets, 4-speed manual, factory air conditioning, restored from an original 50k miles example. This superb 220D saloon is arguably one of the finest of its type that exists today. This 220 D was restored by Brumos Porsche for the France family, the ‘first’ family of Nascar racing, founded by Bill France Sr. The result can only be described as probably the best 220D saloon on the planet. Recently part of a well-known Northeastern collection, the paintwork is excellent all round as is the chrome. The panel gaps are also excellent and there are no visible signs of corrosion within the body. It has been service properly and has recently been fitted with a new set of Michelin tires are fitted as well as a Radio/CD player although the original Becker radio is included. Rarely do Mercedes saloons in such exceptional condition as this come to the market, and especially those with interesting ownership provenance.
(SOLD) Each body part was painted separately off the car. It has received a restoration under the hood to include a complete mechanical service, fresh fluids, fuel injection system serviced and calibrated, major tune-up and distributor rebuild. All components and panels were re-painted and the vehicle received a complete detail inside and out to include the undercarriage. It still features many factory original parts under the hood as well as its original boot, tools, gauges and Blaupunkt Becker Mexico AM/FM radio. Its leather seats and interior have received cosmetic improvements as needed and the interior of the car was removed when we painted the car and properly fit and re-installed. The wood in the car was carefully removed, stripped and re-finished. All brite work was re-plated inside and outside of the car, new rubber and seals were installed. Our goal in this restoration was to preserve its beautiful patina of originality. A DVD documenting the restoration accompanies the vehicle. It is in excellent running and driving condition. Books and documents accompany the car to verify the authenticity.
Designated by Mercedes-Benz as the W128 this very rare car was built to a very high standard indeed as is very ably demonstrated by this example which exudes their styling flair and build quality at its absolute best. To put 220SECs into context, during the 1950s and early 1960s the company produced over 440,000 of their mainstream 180/190 saloons and just short of 26,000 of their 190SL sports tourers whereas during that time they made just over 1,100 of these very exclusive (and expensive!) 220 ponton cabriolets. When its present owner (who is only the third since it left the factory in 1960) acquired it just over six years ago it was generally sound but in need of attention. He is always keen that his cars are in the best possible condition so he sent the 220 to a well-established firm of specialists with the brief of bringing it into top notch condition - they have clearly done an excellent job as the quality of finish inside and out is just superb. The file contains detailed invoices which add up to a quite eye watering sum and also includes some pictures taken during the restoration which give you a very good indication of the quality of the work done.
