1953 Mercedes Benz 220 4-Door Sedan with Sliding Roof

You are bidding on a 1953, Mercedes Benz 220 Sedan.

A California car from new in remarkable original condition but in need of restoration. 

We started with blasting, repainting the set of five rims then equipping them with new Vredestein 15" tires and five new original chrome hubcaps.

The car features the larger brakes and central lubrication system.  The engine runs with good oil pressure and does not smoke.  The wood trim is in original condition and has not previously been refinished.  The seats have been recovered in previous years and are in good sound condition.  The sliding roof needs adjustment (new original top material comes with the Benz as shown in some of the photographs).  The radio and speaker system is original Telefunken.  All dash knobs are original.  New front and rear window seals and door seals are included, also one new original hubcap. 

With the car comes the following documentation:

Workshop Manual 220, English
Owners Manual 220, Edition D, English, Original New
Betriebsanleitung 220, Ausgabe D, German, Original New
Owners Parts Book 220, Catalog A, 1952

We can assist in shipment to Europe via a 20-foot container.
