1958 Mercedes-Benz Type W120 180D Ponton sedan (red)

1962 Mercedes-Benz Type W121 190Db Ponton sedan (white)
The 190D is in much better shape, and Iíve been using the 180D for parts, although it's still very complete. So far, I only had to take one of the brake cylinders from it. Both engines run, but I can't get the 180D to run smoothly. The compression is strong on both, and I believe the injectors need to be cleaned. They have both been stored in shipping containers since Iíve had them. We are moving, and donít have room for them at our new home. I would just like them to go to someone who appreciates old Mercedes diesels and will enjoy them. $4,000 for both Dennis Busenitz

Two Mercedes-Benz Type W120 180 Ponton sedans
One mostly intact, the other must have been a parts car. First one has engine and interior, and most of the "stuff." The second one has no engine, and looks to be there as a parts car. They were purchased from an estate, and are located inside a hangar near Huntsville, Alabama. These things need to go! $1,000 / OBO John Scherff

1957 Mercedes-Benz Type W120 180D Ponton sedan
It was about half way restored and placed in indoor storage for over 25 years with a cover over it, seeing the sunlight for the first time on 10/10/18. Excellent project or parts car. This Ponton has a Webasto sliding rag top sunroof. It was painted black with newer red leather interior. The bumpers and most of the trim have been re-chromed, engine and transmission are there, but it hasnít been turned over. The license plate indicates it was last registered in 1974. No title or keys. The grille is missing, and there is a dent in the hood, and a small dent in the trunk. $2,500 / OBO Paul Root

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.

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) ownerís 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
