In 1951 Mercedes-Benz introduced the W187. The car was available in various versions. When introduced the sedan and convertible went on sale. In 1954 a coupé was added to the collection. According to Mercedes-Benz this later addition, based on the convertible, followed requests by a number of celebrities who had direct access to the top at Mercedes-Benz. Who exactly these celebrities were remains unclear, but they could never have amounted to many as Mercedes-Benz only sold 85 of the 220A coupé in 1954 and 1955. Four years ago our car was fully restored. Last December the mechanics were thoroughly seen to. To say this Mercedes-Benz 220A is in rude health would be an understatement. This car is in prime condition. It also happens to be a matching numbers car. On the outside the car looks great with its straight and correctly aligned panelwork. The black paintwork was very well applied during the respray and is still perfect. The interior trim has been completely replaced in keeping with its roots. The seats and bench seat are in grey leather together with black carpets. Completing the pretty picture is the immaculate woodwork. The 220A coupé has a 2.2 litre straight-six attached to a manual 4-speed gearbox. The four drum brakes work perfectly. During the last major service a complete new ignition was fitted and the carburettor correctly re-tuned. This has of course greatly benefitted the drive. The engine runs nice and smoothly. All fluids were replaced and correctly sized new tyres were also fitted. Finally one should not overlook the rather splendid matching luggage set that comes with this Mercedes-Benz 220A coupé. Finding a Mercedes-Benz W187 220A coupé is quite hard with natural attrition of the original 85 cars produced. Finding one in this splendid condition is neigh on impossible.
