The successor to the Mercedes Benz 220A, the 1956 Mercedes Benz 220S launched in March and featured an upgraded version of the 2.2-liter, inline-six engine, a 4-speed column shift manual transmission, and an optional Hydrak automatic clutch. A technological advancement for its time, the clutch used a small series of micro switches on the gear selector, which automatically disengaged the clutch when the driver changed gears. Visually, the 1956 220S was similar to the 220A, but offered a new one-piece bumper instead of the three-piece bumper found on the previous models. If you are thinking about selling your 1956 Mercedes 220S, buyers will want to know if the Hydrak clutch has been replaced, as there was a high maintenance cost associated with keeping them functional.
