1951 Mercedes-Benz 220A Cabriolet

Description

The Frankfurt Motor Show in the Spring of 1951 saw the return of Mercedes-Benz to their traditional place in the high quality market with the introduction of the 220 series. In line with the rest of the contemporary range of models, these cars featured six cylinder single overhead camshaft engines, valves being across, not in line with, the head. This unit produced 80bhp at a relaxed 4,600rpm, giving an impressive 90mph top speed. Roadworthiness was described by The Motor at the time as outstanding, all independent suspension giving a remarkably level ride on poor secondary roads, yet with good high speed cornering and precise steering. This car was not cheap however, the German price of £1,098 being inflated to £2,123 for the UK market.

This Dutch registered example of the collectible early post-war 220A cabriolet model is offered in good order, supplied with original tools and a luggage set.

Finished in green with a tab interior, this is a well priced example of a popular Mercedes-Benz model amongst collectors. Not to be missed!
