very smooth and easy. The wood trim is a testament to how wood trim
used to be with heavy accents and solid surfaces. Inside the car
has very clean seats, door panels and headliner with the only
modification we could tell was the aftermarket stereo hidden in the
glove box. Vehicle runs on newer tires that are mounted to the
factory style 13in wheels painted to match. Under the hood is the
large 2.2L Inline 6cyl that produced 100HP and was quick to get
upto highway speeds back in the day. Dual carbs was a great feature

that boast numbers into the $45-$55k range and cabriolets that are
well above the six figure amount. Offered here is a very clean,
well sorted and reliable 220S that can be enjoyed and driven to any
car show and be a contender for an award.
