1954 Mercedes-Benz 180

The Mercedes Benz 180 was produced from 1953 through 1962, during which 118,234 examples were produced. The vehicle was offered as a Saloon, with four doors and accommodating four passengers. The 180 had an updated and modern appearance when compared with the post-war 170 model it replaced. Its stylish design, and Mercedes reliability and quality made this a successful vehicle.

Under the hood was a 1767 cc, side-valve engine that had been used in the 170 SV. In 1957, Mercedes replace the engine with an 1897 cc overhead cam unit. This engine was used until 1962 when production ceased.

The design of the unitary body-shell became a standard that Mercedes mimicked in many of its saloon models throughout the years.
