Part of the illustrious Ponton series to come from Mercedes Benz after World War II, the first 220S was presented to the public at the 1955 Frankfurt Auto Show. While the first Cabriolet model would come down the production line in July of 1956, the first 1956 Mercedes Benz 220S Coupe would not be seen until October. Boasting a 2.2L inline-six engine that was capable of giving drivers 99 horsepower, the 220S would later see the addition of two carburetors to increase horsepower to 105. During this era, Mercedes was producing the ultra-exclusive and luxurious Type 300 and saw a market for a less expensive, more personal automobile. The 220S began as a way to fill this void in the market. The Sedan chassis was shortened by nearly 5-inches, 4.7-inches to be exact, and chrome embellishments now adorned the car horizontally along the body panels. In total, only 1,251 220S Coupe models would be released, thus making them very rare in today’s classic car market. If you’re the owner of a 1956 Mercedes 220S Coupe, you understand the appeal these cars have and can probably write a book about the beauty, power and grace of these vibrant models.
