Do not let this opportunity lie and become the new owner of this very unique Mercedes 220A Coupe (W187) in beautiful frame off restored state! This is a NO RESERVE PRICE AUCTION.

The Typ 220 (W187) was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1951 as the new luxury car line-up of Mercedes-Benz. The Typ 220 came with several bodies including the exotic coupés and convertibles. The model had a 6-cylinder 2.2 litre gasoline engine with a power of 80 HP.

The designers were inspired by the 170S (W136) model which shared the same construction with a square cab and prominent flowing fenders and sills. The main and most notable difference between the two is the spot of the headlights The Typ 220 got the headlights on the side fenders for a more modern look. The production of the TYP 220 ended in 1953 and was succeeded by the W105/W180. The coupé/convertible was built until 1955.

In the 5 years that the Mercedes W187 was produced, 18,514 pieces were sold;

Saloon: 16,154
Conv.. A: 1,278
Conv.. B: 997
Coupé: 85

In total there are only 85 coupes sold, of which only a few pieces still exist. This makes the Mercedes 220A Coupe (W187) one of the rarest Mercedes classics, so it is seldom that this Mercedes is offered for sale.

Also this low production number makes this Mercedes a very interesting investment, especially in this unique state.

In 1955, this Mercedes was newly delivered in Frankfurt, Germany. Then this original European delivered Mercedes found its way to the Netherlands where the car in 2017 has undergone a complete ' Frame Off restoration '. No expenses have been spared in this restoration. The complete restoration is documented.
