1961 Mercedes-Benz 190b

In 1953, Mercedes-Benz introduced the W120 sedan powered initially by the company's existing 1.8-liter inline M136 engine and was sold as the Mercedes-Benz 180 through 1962. IN 1956, the W121 was introduced, powered by a 1.9-liter M121 engine. It was sold as the Mercedes-Benz 190 through 1961. Often called 'Pontons' the duo accounted for about 80-percent of Mercedes-Benz' production between 1953 and 1959. The 190b sedan was introduced during 1959 and replaced the original 190. Little changed except for the engine, which was now a 1897cc four-cylinder unit offering 90 (SAE) horsepower. It had a four-speed manual and four-wheel drum brakes. A diesel version of the engine was available, producing 55 (SAE) horsepower.
