Selling A Mercedes 200S Ponton?
The Ponton has the privilege of being Daimler-Benz’s first totally new Mercedes-Benz series of automobiles produced after World War II. In July 1953, these cars replaced the pre-war Type 170 series and were the bulk of the automakers production through 1959, although some models lasted until 1962. Today, the “pontoon-shaped” exterior styling and unibody-type for which the name Ponton was given is one of the most attractive features to Mercedes and early classic car collectors. The Mercedes 220S Ponton was introduced in March 1965 and was the successor to the 220A. Nearly identical, the 220S had an upgraded version of the 2.2-liter inline-six, due to its use of twin-carburetors. The classic Mercedes Ponton 220S also came with an optional Hydrak automatic clutch, however because of high maintenance costs, many were subsequently converted to a manual clutch. Very few examples remain with the original.
