The Mercedes-Benz W111 was a chassis code given to a range of Mercedes vehicles produced between 1959 and 1971. Series production of the 4-door sedan began in August 1959, which made its debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show in autumn. Initially the series consisted of the 220b, 220Sb, and 220SEb. These replaced the (W105) 219, the (W180) 220S and the (W128) 220SE Ponton sedans respectively. The 220b was an entry-level version with little chrome trim, simple hubcaps, and basic interior trim that lacked pockets on doors. The body was modern and featured characteristic American-style tailfins that gave the models their Heckflosse nickname — German for 'fintail'.
This iconic Mercedes-Benz Fintail is presented in Ivory with a wonderfully contrasting red leather interior. It has spent the majority of its life in Tasmania and the present vendor bought the car in 2013 when he proceeded with a bare metal restoration of the entire body. Floor panels were replaced as well as the outer and inner front sill panels including the offside front wheel arch. The underneath has been sealed and the body was re-sprayed in its original Antique Ivory colour. The seats were re-upholstered in lovely red leather and the all door cards are in good original condition. The carpets were renewed and all windscreen, rear screen, doors and boot rubbers have also been replaced. Its original 2.2 litre straight six engine was stripped, replacing all gaskets and seals. This model comes with a manual gearbox operated via a column mounted gear stick. This lovely car has only had two registered owners prior to the present vendor and comes with its original owners manual and service booklet showing every correct service made including its very first after only 300 miles. This surely must be one of the finest Mercedes-Benz 220 Sb Fintail available today.
