MERCEDES 220 S Cabriolet - 1957

Mercedes produces under the range W180, the line "Pontoon" equipped with the 6 cylinders. The 2195 cm3 displacement is first of all of a power of 85cv then of 100 and 106 cv and a speed of 160 km/h. The coupé and cabriolet, of which 3429 were produced, are luxuriously equipped in the Daimler Benz tradition. So it is about 2000 cabriolets which were produced reserved for a privileged clientele of high level.


Comfortable, easy to drive, cheap maintenance, reliability, make it a collector's car that can be used without any problem and with pleasure. The value of this Mercedes convertible, which is an international value, has exploded with auction results around 150,000€ lately, both in Europe and in the USA. A more than safe value. As usual we have given a more than reasonable estimate, you can take advantage of it.


This car was the property of a famous journalist, Jacques POUX, originally from the Tarn, presenter of the JT in the 60s/80s, whose collection we sold in 2014. He carefully maintained this convertible, the result of his first TV appearances, and used it on his property near Cordes. This car was acquired by a collector also in our area, who entrusts it to us for sale, along with his other cars. It was only used for summer drives in the Tarn.
