1953 Mercedes-Benz 220A Sedan
This 1953 Mercedes-Benz 220A Sedan is an extremely original example that has been patiently awaiting complete restoration. Black with tan interior. A largely complete car that's been sitting undisturbed for many years. Recently unearthed and ready for its next caretaker to come along and give it the proper restoration it deserves. Mercedes-Benz re-entered the automobile market in 1949 with the W137-chassis 1.7-liter 170 sedan built using tools and dies hidden away during the war. Its X-configured oval-tube frame was stronger and more stable than the ladder-frames of competitors. At the 1951 Frankfurt Motor Show, the company introduced the W137 with a 2.2-liter engine, hence the 220 model name, distinguishable from its predecessor only by the headlights faired into the front fenders. An exciting project and the perfect car to complete any Mercedes-Benz enthusiast’s collection.
