Recently we came across this beautiful Mercedes-Benz 220 A Cabriolet 1952 at The Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. Watch and hear it drive and be touched by its beauty!
This classic car dealer is one of the largest in the world. We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear your comments on our videos. Feel free to leave one!
Introduced in March 1954, the 220a was a more luxurious and up-scale version of the W120 model 180 with a wheelbase stretched by 170 mm (6.7 in). 100 mm (3.9 in) of that increase in length was necessary to accommodate the longer straight-6 engine taken from the W187 model 220, that in this application delivered 85 PS (63 kW; 84 hp) fed by a single carburettor.
The passenger cabin was also lengthened by 70 mm (2.8 in) to provide an increase in the leg room available to rear seat passengers. From the side these six cylinder cars can readily be distinguished from their shorter four cylinder siblings by the extra "quarter light" windows incorporated in each of the rear doors.
220a production ended in April, 1956 with 25,937 units produced.
