1961 Mercedes-Benz Ponton
Type 190b Binz wagon

owner: Greg Minuskin / Beverly Hills, California / chronofix@earthlink.net

I acquired this lovely car in Van Nuys, California in May 2006. It needed quite a few mechanical repairs. After transmission work, a carburetor rebuild, complete brake job, a good polish, and a new set of tires, it is road worthy once again! I am the third owner of this very rare car. As the mbzponton website says, there were 349 Type 190b Binz "kombis" (station wagons) made. The chassis serial number is 1594. The interior is perfect, as it was redone some eleven years ago and never used. In fact, the car has been in storage for the past eleven years after the previous owner restored the interior, but then never really used the car. I am still trying to find some window rubber for the back windows.
