Hello, I am from southern Brazil, and have just finish the restoration of this 1959 Mercedes-Benz Type 220S Ponton sedan with Webasto sliding sunroof.
I used a lot of the information at www.mbzponton.org to make the complete restoration, including the selection of the body color, that I got from this illustration:
Back to the beginning, this is what it was like when I bought it in October, 2002. It had been sitting, unused, for 13 years.
The original sunroof was closed with a steel sheet, and we had to rebuild it. This photo shows when we re-opened it.
Later in the disassembling process
As you can see from this photo, it was a complete restoration!
Beautiful two-tone paint scheme and the Webasto roof wide open
Thank you all, who have created and maintained this wonderful information source about Mercedes-Benz Pontons
