The 220 was Mercedes-Benz's bread and butter model, comprising the vast majority of cars built, particularly for export, in the mid- and late-Fifties. First introduced in 1951, the 220 was comfortable, well-built and attractive. Its 80hp single overhead camshaft six, however, did little to provide exciting performance. The 220S, with dual carburetion resolved that shortcoming from its introduction in 1956, eventually culminating in the 120 SAE horsepower of this 1957 dual carburetor 220S. This 1957 Mercedes-Benz 220S Cabriolet is a solid and very attractive highly original car finished that has been cosmetically restored in beige with black leather upholstery, grey carpets and a black cloth top. It has a good recent repaint, attention too much of its chrome and a thorough detailing under the hood. Equipment includes a 4-speed manual transmission, wheel covers, radial whitewall tires and it comes with a two volume workshop manual. The interior wood is refinished original and in very sound, presentable condition. A pretty and sound car, it will be a good driver for many years before beginning the kind of straightforward restoration which only such a sound and straight original car complete with its many hard to find trim items can be.
