- As World War II ended, Daimler-Benz AG was in precarious health. In 1951, an upscale modernization of the 170 bowed as the 220 series, with the internal company designation of W187. Styling was similar to the 170, but its headlamps were faired into the front fenders instead of free-standing, giving the car a more up-to-date appearance. The engine, however, was completely new.

- It was novel not only in its architecture but also for its dimensions. The “short-stroke” was unusual in Europe at the time, but became the mainstay of Mercedes-Benz's line, and derivatives remained in production until the 1970s. More than 16,000 Mercedes-Benz 220s were sedans, but more discerning buyers also had the option of ordering a two-three seat Cabriolet A or a full four-seat Cabriolet B. Only 1,278 clients opted for the “A” version.

- Was completed October 17, 1953, wearing Blue (DB320) paintwork over Grey Leather upholstery, delivered November 9 and sold new to the Kaiser & Ganz company on December 18, 1953. Prior to purchase (Dec. 12), the 220 received its stunning Auto-Push Button Becker Monaco radio and antenna.

- A few years later, protective undercoating was applied on February 24, 1958 in Berlin at 77,075 kms. Shortly after, in May of 1958, was in the care of its second and nearly lifelong owner, Mr. Gherian of Detroit, Michigan. Records from the early 1960's to present are carefully filed in the car's dossier, along with an original instruction manual, all original matching Becker radio booklets and other period pieces.

- Displaying older but well-appointed restoration work, including the application of the current black lacquer paint and tidy grey upholstery the 220 Cabriolet A leave a lasting impression.

- The Cabriolet appears to retain much of its original trim, sheet metal, glass and auxiliary equipment and benefits from a recent mechanical inspection and tune-up. Fit and finish is that of a nice honest driver and thoughtful stewardship – an excellent candidate for local display or worldwide vintage touring.

- Tonneau cover with protective sleeve are available for open motoring.

- All 5 wheels are matching 10/53 production, complemented by correct 6.40x15 white walled tires.
- Period Bosch yellow fog lamps and working hazard traffic indicators compliment the presentation.

- In addition to records, an original Workshop Manual, jack, tire iron, roadside accessories and Kaco emergency light accompany.

- A particularly rare find - especially on this side of the pond, this incredibly elegant 1953 Mercedes-Benz 220 Cabriolet A, from over half a century of loving ownership, is now available from our USA showroom for worldwide purchase and delivery.

- This charming and timeless Mercedes-Benz 220 Cabriolet A will make a fantastic first classic or a welcomed addition to a growing collection.


- All inspections welcome... We ship worldwide.
