1953 Mercedes Benz 220, 4 Door Sedan

You are bidding on a 58 year old Mercedes Benz, 2.2 liter, 4-door sedan with rubberized sliding roof.  Exterior color:  040 BLACK.

The odometer reading is 7,444 KM (63,000 miles), which we believe to be correct considering the overall condition of the car.  Original sheet metal, original interior, original excellent wood trim and the rare original Telefunken radio.  All the bright work is original but in need of re-chroming.  The 5 rims have been sandblasted and repainted black.  There are 5 new Vredestein Sprint classic tires (185 x 15 - 91H) installed with 5 'correct' hub caps.  One good used hub cap goes with the car.  The stripps on the running board are new.  The engine runs with full oil pressure, the engine does not smoke.

The car comes with the following parts to be installed by the new owner:

new windshield seal
new rear window seal
new door seals
sunroof material

The car features the "one-shot" front axle lubrication system.  The directional sticks are in working order, operated by turning the chrome horn ring to either the left or right.  The undercarriage shows very well.

This 220 should be considered an excellent candidate for a serious collector to add the finishing touches that are currently missing.

Take a look at the documentation:

Instruction manual 220 edition B, english (new original)

Betriebsanleitung 220 edition D, german (new original)
