Description

TITLE INCORRECTLY SHOWS THAT THE VEHICLE IS AN SE, BUT IT IS CARBURETED AND NOT FUEL INJECTION. I am unable to revise it.

This was a vehicle my father purchased to restore, it was partially restored around 2010 but has been sitting since he had a stroke in 2011. Since partial restoration the car has been in Arizona and there are no signs of rust that I can see. The car was running and driving but has been sitting for a few years in storage. Clear title in hand. See below for description from Mercedes Benz. This is a beautiful car ready for someone with the time to bring it back to it's former glory. I wish I had the time for it. All reasonable offers will be considered. Thanks for looking!

Introduced in 1954, the 220 model, also known internally as the 220 a (W 180), was the first Mercedes-Benz 6-cylinder model to feature a unitised-body design.

Its modern, spacious “ponton body”, which Mercedes-Benz had launched just six months earlier in the mid-range 180 model, offered hitherto unknown standards of spaciousness and comfort. With the launch of the revised and more powerful 220 S in 1956, the letter “S” became a permanent fixture in the names of high-end Mercedes-Benz models, underlining the special status of the 6-cylinder “ponton” saloon.

Highlights

  • Integral body construction
  • Increased spaciousness thanks to advanced self-supporting chassis-body structure
  • Front suspension subframe
  • Single-joint swing axle with low centre of rotation
  • Brake drums with “turbo cooler”
  • Heating with blower as standard, separately adjustable for driver and front passenger
  • “Hydrak” automated hydraulic clutch available as an optional extra (from 1957)
  • Mechanically controlled intake manifold petrol injection (220 SE, from 1958)
