1959 Mercedes Benz 220S (Ponton) Cabriolet
This classic Mercedes was produced between 1954 and late 1959, although some cars were only sold and registered in 1960. The chassis code was W180 and the range included a Saloon, a Coupe and a Cabriolet. Informally it was none as the Pontoon, referring to the unibody-type, pontoon-shaped styling.
The car was fitted with a 78kW or 105hp, 2.2L inline six cylinder engine with twin-carburetors. There were two models in the W180 chassis code, the 220A and the 220S which were externally virtually the same but the 220S had an uprated, 2.2L engine with some minor cosmetic differences.
This specific car is a 1959, 220S Cabriolet, finished in magnificent yellow with classic red interior and a burgundy canvas roof. The car has been restored to a very high standard and is cosmetically and mechanically perfect! The car was imported from England eight years ago and the restoration started almost immediately. It has hardly been driven since completion and is without a mark!
A great opportunity to own a truly beautiful Mercedes Benz classic car!
