The post-war Mercedes models with their four-cylinder engines were quickly replaced by larger vehicles. From mid-1951 there was a new six-cylinder engine. First, the accompanying car appeared with very conservative body, borrowed from the type 170 S. The press praised the model, but especially the engine with the overhead camshaft. It wasn't long before beautiful, largely handmade convertibles were on offer. Only 2,360 units of the A and B variants and the coupe were built. Because of the high price (18,860.00 DM) they were pure luxury, affordable only for the wealthy.
Our MB 220 convertible A was delivered to Gmund am Tegernsee in Germany. All service records until 1960 still exist. Then the classic car was in the possession of a well-known industrialist family until 1996. From 1996 - 1998 it was refurbished on behalf of the current owner (pictures and invoices are available). This 220 A convertible impresses with its comprehensible history and marvelous charisma, especially by its interior with the original leather.
