The Mercedes-Benz 220 models, internally designated W128, were a definite cut above the entry-level 180-Series cars, which entered production back in the early 1950s. Starting in 1954, a number of six-cylinder variants capitalized on growing demand for increased power. The 220 (1954 to 1956), the 219 (1956 to 1959), 220S (1956 to 1959) and 220SE (1959 to 1960) provided abundant horsepower and torque, packaged in the smaller body style. Only the 220S (Super) and 220SE (Super, Fuel Injected) engines were available in the top-line cabriolets.
This Benz car came from Northern CA and has been meticulously restored with no expenses spared.
The floor pan is as perfect as engine compartment and rest of the car. Excellent paint, chrome and wood.
The leather interior is in fantastic condition.
The engine compartment is also very nice and needs no attention at all. Floor and the trunk area are dry clean.
We just went through the complete files and found lots of receipts dating back to 1967.
It looks like it has never left California and it had only two owners since then.
Restoration was done between 1990 and 1991
Car is still in fantastic condition.
The receipts are totaling over $75,000.- , not counting the handwritten ones.
Car is in stunning condition and a must see for any serious collector.
