History

Mercedes-Benz has a long and proud tradition and reputation that was built by years of domination on the raceway, superior build quality, and undeniable beauty. The cars they constructed are legendary and well renowned. Their tradition continued with the 220S and 300 model range. The 220S was offered in saloon, coupe, and convertible configuration. They featured leather seating and exotic materials used throughout. The wood trim was commonly mahogany. Under the bonnet was a 2195 cc alloy straight six-cylinder engine with single overhead camshaft, twin Solex downdraft carburetors and a 7.6:1 compression ratio. The 125 SAE horsepower was sent to the rear wheels through a three-speed column shift automatic gearbox. Braking power was provided by a servo-assisted drums.

The 220S was produced in limited numbers beginning in the mid-1950's and continuing until October of 1959. A total of 3,429 examples were produced with 2178 being convertibles.
