The 1957 Mercedes Benz 220S Coupe, first debuted in Cabriolet form at the 1955 Frankfurt Auto Show, would launch into production during October of 1956. Taking styling cues from its Sedan counterpart, the 220S Coupe was built on a shortened Sedan chassis to create a more personal and less expensive alternative to the Type 300. Accentuated by longer doors, additional chrome trim along the body panels, and wrapped in leather and wood, the 220S Coupe also featured a 2.2L inline-six engine with 99hp. Twin carburetors would be added later, which would increase horsepower to 105. The overall weight of the 220S Coupe was also trimmed back by using steel skimmed doors over alloy frames. In total, 3,429 units of the 220S were manufactured between 1956 and 1959, with 1,251 of those models being Coupes. If you’re thinking about selling your 1957 Mercedes Benz 220S Coupe, there is still a wide demand for these special classics in the market today.
