Classifieds / Wanted --Drivers seat bottom for 1951 w187 220 sedan
« Last post by jonp51220 on October 15, 2021, 12:51:13 PM »
Greetings --- I am in need of a drivers seat bottom for a 1951 w 187 220 sedan. Some clever previous owner replaced it with a passenger side one. All I am in need of is the wooden bottom portion but will certainly entertain any portion that may be available.

I am located in the So Cal area and would be happy to pick up or have it shipped to me.

Thanks   Jon

I'm still searching for this Tensioner Bolt #1810520174. New or used,
Perhaps Someone has an engine parting out.

Hi Marc,

I have inherited those cars from my deceased husband (he bought them over 25 years ago), the car identifications were made by the court appointed probate referee (no expert on classic cars) in probate.
He identified the blue/white as cab A.  But my husband did mention to me that blue/white was a retired police car which was supposed to be very rare (which is exactly what you have pointed out = Open Touringcar Police model).

I am no expert, I'd highly appreciate your expertise and knowledge.
How much do you think they are worth (roughly, in USD)?

Respectfully :)

220 / Re: Mercedes 220 two tone, original or not?

Marc, Yes that was a bit confusing, sorry. I wasn't commenting about two tone paint. I agree that the sedans did not come from the factory with two tone paint.

For what it's worth, I was commenting on the paint code tags. You implied that it was somewhat random as to what cars had plates.  I was suggesting that it may not have been so random, that at a certain point in time they started putting them on. They were on the firewall, but I've never seen any on the frame. On these cars they were attached with screws.

I was trying to establish a few time points for cars that had paint code tags. The two cars I mentioned, I know for sure had paint tags. I mentioned the body type because it dated the car as a late 1953. It actually was 187012-03483/53 and was delivered November 1953. I had always assumed that all the curved windshield cars were 1954-55.

I was wondering if any others might add information about whether they had paint tags or not. I have a 1952 Cab A here that does not, nor did a 1952 170Sb, or a 1950 170S Cab B, that I restored, or a 1952 220 Cab B I used to own.

I've seen many of these cars over the years, but never paid much attention to the paint tag issue unless I was actually painting the car. It's just an impression I have that most of the other cars I have seen up close, usually 1953 or earlier did not have the tags.
