Having only produced four-cylinder cars post World War Two, Mercedes-Benz eventually decided to introduce two new six-cylinder automobiles, the 220 and 300. Both of these models sought to reaffirm Mercedes-Benz’s reputation as a luxury car manufacturer. The 220, known internally as the W187, was equipped with a 2,195-cubic centimetre, six-cylinder overhead-cam engine that could produce a claimed top speed of 140 km/h to 145 km/h. The engine was of special interest to the motoring press, because it was the first new design out of Mercedes-Benz in over 10 years, and it featured an efficient cylinder head, setting the power output at 80 brake horsepower. To compensate for the increased performance of the six-cylinder engine, Duplex brakes were fitted, providing improved stopping power.
Designed in a modern vogue, body styles included the saloon, coupé and two cabriolets, with the cabriolet B being a four-seater.
The Cabriolet B shown here is finished in an older cosmetic restoration, with rich Blue paint, burgundy leather upholstery, and a dark blue cloth convertible top, and it shows a well-maintained appearance, with only minor flaws and blemishing from road use throughout. Elegant features include an attractive dial-face Becker radio and amber-tinted Bosch fog lamps. It should be noted that the car sports a factory replacement or rebuilt engine, as is noted by a tag affixed to the engine block.

The extensive list of desirable features include an original owners manual, sales literature, service manual, a Telefunken radio with multiple bands, and original Bosch lamps with halogen bulbs, which do not have sealed beam units behind the original lenses like so many other restored cars. The car also has a set of fitted luggage in the trunk, which is in excellent condition. Overall, it is described as being in outstanding condition with everything in working order. The lovely Blue exterior finish is offset by a burgundy interior with matching carpets. Thanks to properly executed restoration work, this Mercedes-Benz requires nothing to be driven and shown with pride.

With light recommissioning, this car promises to be an elegant and vivacious touring automobile.
