The Mercedes-Benz W111 was a chassis code given to its top-range vehicles, including 4-door sedans, produced from 1959 to 1968, and 2-door coupes and cabriolets from 1961 to 1971. The W111, was initially attributed only to W110. All three versions W110, W111, and W112, in both 2- and 4-door bodies, were built on an identical chassis. In 1961, the Mercedes-Benz W111 fintail range was filled with three new models: a simplified 4-cylinder 190c W110, an identical 300SE, but fitted with a big-block 3-litre engine W112, and a 2-door coupe/cabriolet of the W111/W112 (see below). Though never attributed as part of the fintail family, the Mercedes-Benz W113 Pagoda roadster was designed on an identical but shortened chassis, and was launched in 1963.

In 1965 Mercedes-Benz gave its budget-range W110 cars a major facelift and in doing so opted to continue producing the W111 as a new model 230S. Previously the W110 was separate in terms of marketing and was classed as a 4 instead of 6-cylinder, 1965 turned that around. In this final configuration a total of 41,107 cars were built through January 1968, when the last of 4-door fintails left the production line. Between 1959 and 1968 a total of 337,803 W111s were built.

Finished in grey with a tan interior, with just 73,000 KMs recorded this is a good opportunity to acquire a well preserved example of Mercedes class-leading executive car of the 1960s.
