The vehicle for sale here was registered in November 1951 by a paper mill in Ober-Schmitten, Hesse (Germany). Three years later it became the property of a merchant in Mannheim (Germany), who kept it until 1961. In that year, a winery near Mannheim acquired it, which kept it in its possession for almost 30 years. The fourth owner registered the vehicle to himself in Heppenheim (Germany) in July 1990.

In 2007, the convertible was extensively restored, with photo documentation. In addition, a new speedometer with zero kilometers was installed. Through a dealer in southern Germany, the car finally found its way to the current owner in 2008. Since then, he has kept all invoices and TÜV reports and has taken care of a thorough maintenance.

In the 12 years the car has been moved regularly and now shows a mileage of about 11,000 km, which is documented by the invoices. The current expert's report with a grade of 1- underlines the well-maintained condition of the vehicle.

History of the series
The Mercedes 220 was the first post-war six-cylinder engine from Mercedes. The newly designed engine was fitted into the unchanged chassis of the Mercedes 170. Externally, the hood was adapted, and the formerly free-standing headlights were also integrated into the fenders.

The 187 series was initially delivered as a sedan, convertible A and B, and finally 1953 a coupe was added. During the construction period between 1951 and 1955, 1,278 Cabriolets A were produced.

The 80 hp output enabled a top speed of around 145 km/h, a remarkable figure at the time. For comparison: a Porsche 356 1300 drove about as fast.


The vehicle is located in our showroom in Stuttgart-Plieningen, close to the airport/trade fair. A test drive and an inspection on the car lift are possible by arrangement.
