1954 Mercedes Benz 220 Cab A

1954 220 Cab A

As a collector, I have to say this is my favorite Mercedes Benz of all time.  I have owned many classics, but this 220 cab A is quite something to own.

The history:
I purchase this car with the intention to complete the restoration.  I say to complete, because has been already 90% restored.  This was a frame off restoration.  This car is complete, and was running until a few years ago when the restoration started.  Then during the restoration it was garaged for the past 10 years stored.  The previous owner owned the car since 1976 and mentioned that the car was rarely driven.  I cannot say if the miles are correct, because a 56 years old car with 10,000 miles is very rare.

Original Engine & Transmission
Needs a complete service and the radiator to be purged

Complete car
Miles is showing 10,907
Frame Off Restoration

Many Chrome Pieces sent to the Chrome Shop, (the photos of the chrome on the floor is all you have to put back, nothing else!  Door handles, Door window crank, Bumper guards, wiper arms and blades, front turn signal spears, from fog lights, rear bumper guards. )
