Introduced in 1956. the 220 S saloon was one of a trio of new
models featuring unitary construction bodyshells employing large. br/>box-section side-members - hence the term 'Ponton' - the others
being the 190 and 219. All-round coil-sprung independent suspension
had long been a fixture of the Mercedes-Benz range and that of the
newcomers benefitted from the newly developed single-pivot rear
swing axle. Short-wheelbase coupé and cabriolet versions of the 220
S soon followed. Luxuriously equipped in the best Daimler-Benz
tradition. these superbly constructed touring cars were priced some
70% above the 220 S saloon. In 1958. the 220 range was updated with
a fuel-injected version of the 2. 2-litre overhead-camshaft six. br/>becoming the 220 SE. Maximum power increased from 106 to 115bhp
and. while top speed remained unchanged at around 100mph. there was
a useful improvement in acceleration; the 0-60mph time reducing by
two seconds. By the time production ceased in November 1960. fewer
than 2. 00 220 SE coupé and cabriolet models had been manufactured
and today these stylish and luxuriously equipped grand tourers are
highly prized.

This excellent lefthand drive 1959 Mercedes-Benz 220 SE Ponton
coupé was subject to a restoration about ten years ago. Imported to
the UK recently from just outside Nice in the South of France. the
car is finished in silver with black painted roof with maroon
leather interior and matching maroon carpets. This Ponton
coupé is supplied with a French registration document. a French
transfer document. a number of invoices. a UK MoT test certificate
which expires in February 2017 and the car has been registered as
being in the UK with NOVA. A lovely example that would grace any
classic car event anywhere in Europe or would equally feel back at
home touring the Cote D'Azur.
