Known History

 

Debuted in 1954, the new 220 series from Mercedes-Benz featured modern styling, unitized construction, and roomy accommodations, plus a new OHV 2.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine. The uprated 220 S arrived in August 1957 with dual Solex carburetors yielding 120 hp and 100 mph capability. While technically mass-produced, the 220-series two-door models were hand-finished by the renowned craftsmen at Mercedes-Benz’s Sindelfingen works to impressive standards, justifying their substantial pricing. In all, just 3,429 examples of the 220 S Coupe and Cabriolet were built from 1957 to 1959.

 

According to its accompanying Daimler-Benz production record, this 1957 Mercedes-Benz 220 S Cabriolet is an original US-specification example finished with specially ordered Light Green Metallic paint and red leather upholstery. Retaining its original engine, it benefits handsomely from 20 years of prior ownership and care under an avid Mercedes-Benz enthusiast, including a meticulous restoration by noted Mercedes-Benz expert Bruce Adams. Among its many highlights, this 220 S Cabriolet features exceptional fit and finish, metallic paint custom pigmentmatched in Germany, bespoke fitted luggage handmade in France, and correct tags, markings, finishes, and equipment throughout. Confirming its excellence, the 220 S was awarded the Corinthian Award at the 2022 Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance. Accompanied by a document folio containing original manuals, plus a tool kit, work light, jack, and spare tire, this rare and stylish 1957 Mercedes-Benz 220 S Cabriolet is ready for continued shows and classic tours.
