1959 Mercedes-Benz Type W120 180b Ponton sedan
|Major mechanical restoration performed in 2015 by Henry Magno Restorations. New headliner, windlace, etc. professionally installed. New carpet set (ordered from KHM in Germany). Comes with an extra set of replacement mats for the front. Soundproofing laid under the carpeting. Refurbished all Bakelite trim pieces. Paint refurbished with wax and polish treatments. Bumpers have some minor dings and there are a couple of chips and scratches in the paint, but overall, the car is in amazing shape. It drives like a dream. It runs strong and smooth and I have complete confidence driving it fairly long distances. It is really fun to drive. Overall, the seats are in very good shape with the exception the back of the driver's seat, which is coming apart a little bit, and needs some minor repair, and the top of the rear bench seat is showing some surface cracking. This car is in great condition both mechanically and cosmetically.||$17,500|| Kevin Gould
1955 Mercedes-Benz Type W180 220a Ponton sedan
Very nice unrestored example. Last sold in 1993. Runs as it should. Very tight
engine. I found zero rust! Car located in Denver, Colorado.
Equipped with a factory adjustment on the distributor (present on many early M-Bs) designed to provide a manual adjustment (from the driver's position) to eliminate poor fuel knock. The adjustment cable runs from the distributor to the left side of the dash to a knob that rotates. At tune-up time, the knob was rotated to the full timing advance stop before the timing was set. When the car was driven in a country where the octane of the fuel was lower than that of the home country, the owner could retard the ignition timing without leaving the driver's seat, reversing the process when fueling back in the home country. I believe that the cable was eliminated around 1957.

1957 Mercedes-Benz Type 220S Ponton sedan
|Car has been lightly used on weekends in dry weather. Runs very well (spent over $5,000 in 2016 on new valves and other misc. tuning with local Mercedes-Benz experts). Transmission is a four-speed column-shift manual. Chassis is in good condition. Tires are white walls mounted on stock rims with matching hubcaps. Car was restored in early 2000s, with new paint (light blue), upholstery, etc. and has been used lightly since – so it presents well. Mileage unknown (odometer reads 27,733). Interior is in very good condition. Seats have been reupholstered in red leather. Wood dash and trim in overall good condition. Becker radio. Original switches and knobs. Most gauges and lights work (not fuel gauge or clock). Exterior: body very solid. Paint is overall very clean. Chrome, lights, and reflectors in good condition.||$19,500 / or very near offers||Chris McCrum|

1956 Mercedes-Benz Type W105 219 Ponton sedan
Purchased from the estate of the original owner in 1988. It had been stored
for 20 years in a barn, and the property was being sold. I am selling my farm
and thereby losing my barn, which has stored my cars for the past 28 years.
The car had 72k miles when purchased and currently has 82k.
The car was/is rust and accident free. I had the car repainted in the original black exterior and it stills looks magnificent. The chrome was replated by Frankford Plating in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The wheel cylinders and master cylinder were rebuilt by White Post Restoration, and relined shoes were installed, and new rubber brake lines installed. Fuel pump rebuilt, carb rebuilt, gas tank sent out for cleaning and coating and new flex lines installed. Starter and generator were rebuilt. New German carpet and headliner installed. Upholstery was changed from cream leather to red leather. Five tires installed. Becker radio rebuilt and upgraded to support aux device use.
I have a large collection of parts that will go with the car at no extra charge - any of which can be purchased individually until the car is sold. Parts include running engine from 220S, 219 head, two transmissions, complete front and rear suspension, hood, trunk lid, four doors from 220S and right side doors from 219 (doors have glass and all hardware), numerous windows, windshields and rear glass, gas tank in VG condition, NOS white steering wheel, two jacks and lots of assorted bits and pieces. Will include all remaining parts at time of sale.

1960 Mercedes-Benz Type W128 220SE Ponton cabriolet
|This 1960 220SE cabriolet was purchased new in Los Angeles and driven home to Las Vegas where it spent the first 40 years in the care of its original owner, who subsequently moved to Santa Fe, bringing the car with him. Black lacquer over red, matching numbers per the build sheet; tool kit, jack and original (though somewhat dog-eared) owner’s manual are included. New convertible top. 76,000 miles showing on the odometer. Due to its life in a dry climate, it remains completely rust free. Received a re-spray four or five years ago, and although the paint is to a relatively high standard re-fitment was not handled with the same attentiveness. Both doors deserve adjustment, some trim has been deformed in remounting, dash refinishing was amateurish. There is the typical split in the leather driver door pocket fold. Nevertheless, it is a great running, matching numbers solid driver that with little additional effort and investment could be brought to a concours level. 45 photos available on request.||$125,000 / OBO||Henry Cowles|

1959 Mercedes-Benz Type W121 190 Ponton sedan
|Nice example of the type, with the Webasto sunroof. Very strong, reliable runner, used daily until put in storage seven years ago. Older restoration included a new steering wheel and a new stainless exhaust system. All the rust was fixed, including a new paint job, still in good condition. Mileage is unknown, but probably high. Seats are worn, the floor rubber needs to be replaced, and the chrome is rough in spots. Everything works – gauges, lights, etc. Full set of original tools, original owner’s manual, original Mercedes service manuals and many spare parts. Tires are nearly new. The only part that’s not genuine is the Pertronix electronic points.||PRICE REDUCED!

1959 Mercedes-Benz 220S Ponton cabriolet
VIN A180.030-8500623. One of only 2,178 built worldwide from 1956 through
1959. Data Card indicates it left the factory and was delivered in
Stuttgart on April 21, 1959. Original color was DB439 Cream. It was
repainted, and the color now appears to be close to DB608 Ivory.
As far as I can tell, I am the third owner. The odometer currently reads just over 98,000 miles and is actually a few thousand miles less than that, since there is a 6% odometer error. I believe the mileage shown is correct as the information on the webpage indicates.
In addition to the movie credits the car has, it has won numerous local, regional and national awards. A partial list includes...
