Vehicle Description

1957 Mercedes-Benz 220S 'Ponton' Cabriolet: Elegant open-air transportationThis 1957 Mercedes-Benz 220S 'Ponton' Cabriolet is an excellent original car that's been under the same family's ownership for the last 40 years. Black with tan leather interior and a desirable carbureted model. It runs and drives well and is very straight, solid, and honest overall. A wonderful opportunity to own and drive a lovely 220s. The 220S debuted at Frankfurt in 1956 as the top of a new line of cars. It used the companys envelope-style ponton body and shared a strong family resemblance to the sporty 190SL and mighty 300SL. Unlike those specialty two-seaters, however, the 220S was hand-built to carry passengers in luxury on a daily basis. Mercedes built just 1,066 Cabriolets in 1957. As appealing as this Mercedes-Benz is mechanically, it is the complete package of styling, drivetrain, and interior fitments, which makes the 220S the standard by which all other six-cylinder European cars of the fifties are judged.Price: $89,500
