1956 Mercedes-Benz 220 Series
A new model - the 220 Cabriolet - was presented at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt in September 1955. This elegantly shaped new model was based mainly on a shortened chassis from the 220 sedan which was already in production for one and a half years. Deliveries of the aesthetically designed model were planned to start during the second quarter of 1956. However, this never happened, at least not according to plan - an open version of the 220 was never produced. The convertible manufactured from July 1956, was based instead on the upscale 220 S, the successor to the 220. As a result the new cabriolet benefited from the new, powerful 100 horsepower engine, carried over from the 220 S sedan.

Production lasted from 1956 through 1969 with 2,178 units produced. The inline six-cylinder (M 180 II) engine displaced 2195cc, offered 100 horsepower, and carried the car to a top speed of 160 km/h (99 mph).

This fully restored example is a numbers matching car with just one owner from new. It has been restored to original specification by the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center.
