1958 Mercedes Benz 220S Cabriolet

In 1956, German automaker Mercedes Benz took the very successful 220 Sedan, shortened it by 4.7 inches, and began production on the Cabriolet and Coupe versions. Sporting longer doors and a removed roof, the 1958 Mercedes Benz 220S Cabriolet commanded a luxurious and graceful presence. The thinner steering wheel displayed the silver Mercedes emblem with the classic steel inner lay for a horn, personifying the luxurious driving experience. The 220S became known as the “Ponton,” referring to the sheer size of the classic and the pontoon-like shape. Mercedes also began offering the Hydrak clutch, which was an innovative feature allowing the driver to forego the use of a clutch, but due to its mechanical failures over time, most current examples have most often been replaced it with a conventional unit. If your particular 220S Cabriolet offers the original Hydrak clutch, be sure to mention this when selling, as it can make your classic stand out from the rest.
