1955 220 Sunroof Coupe

http://www.braatenclassics.com/1955mb220/gallerypgp.htm


This is a RARE 1955 Mercedes 220 Sunroof Coupe. There were less than 85 Examples of this Car ever made........Out of those, Only 13 were made with the Factory Sunroof. This Unique Classic is one of them. The Second Owner of this Classic was well known Restorer, Alex Dearborn. The previous owner had this Classic for 26 Years. This Gem has a 6 Cylinder Mercedes with a a 4-Speed Transmission on the Column. It has a Restored Becker "America" station searching Radio. Complete set of Original Manuals, Mercedes Tool Kit, and probably the MOST Unique Item; The Original Mercedes Matching Three-piece Luggage Set. Interior is Red Leather.

I saw this car at Alex's Marblehead shop in the early to mid 70's. My how time flies.

John,
Isn't that the MB Classic Center in Irvine, California?
I think I've seen that car in some of the photos of that facility.
