This 1959 Mercedes Benz 220S Cabrio is in Black with Natural leather interior.
The 220S Mercedes-Benz (W180 II) was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in April 1956. It succeeded the 220 model of 1951 with its traditional tubular chassis frame and it shared some of its mechanical specification. The 2.2L inline-six (100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp), later 106 PS (78 kW; 105 hp)) motor was upgraded in the S version mainly due to the use of twin-carburetors.
It is attractively presented in the timeless combination of Black (color code DB 040) over a Natural/Tan leather interior.
Locally owned, it last changed hands in 2012. Prior to that it was in the same ownership for over 35 years.
Gearbox: four speed manual column shift.
Suspension: front, independent, rear, single joint swing axle, coil springs
Brakes: servo assisted drum
Left hand drive.
This is the final year of production for the 220S model.
The range was marketed as a comfortable family car that also provided the performance of a lively sports model. In July 1959 the production of the saloon ended but the coupe and cabriolet models continued until October of the same year. Approx 3,400 Cabrios were produced.
This 1959 example was restored to a very high driver quality.
