1958 Mercedes-Benz Type W120 180b Ponton sedan
|This Ponton has 103,000 miles, and was extensively renovated by its prior owner (a neighbor of mine) in the late 70s. I've owned it for nine years, during which time I've replaced the water pump and brakes, among other items, including tires that are brand new. The exterior is in very good condition with only a few paint and chrome blemishes. The interior is good overall. Mechanically, the car runs very well, but not all functions work, including what's left of the ventilation system and the original cardboard type duct material. Comes with some spare parts including Bakelite window trim, tail light covers, etc.||Asking $7,500|| Carl-Eric Benzinger
1957 Mercedes-Benz Type W120 180D Ponton sedan
|It was about half way restored and placed in indoor storage for over 25 years with a cover over it, seeing the sunlight for the first time on 10/10/18. Excellent project or parts car. This Ponton has a Webasto sliding rag top sunroof. It was painted black with newer red leather interior. The bumpers and most of the trim have been re-chromed, engine and transmission are there, but it hasn’t been turned over. The license plate indicates it was last registered in 1974. No title or keys. The grille is missing, and there is a dent in the hood, and a small dent in the trunk.||$2,500 / OBO|| Paul Root

1959 Mercedes-Benz Type W120 180b Ponton sedan
|Major mechanical restoration performed in 2015 by Henry Magno Restorations. New headliner, windlace, etc. professionally installed. New carpet set (ordered from KHM in Germany). Comes with an extra set of replacement mats for the front. Soundproofing laid under the carpeting. Refurbished all Bakelite trim pieces. Paint refurbished with wax and polish treatments. Bumpers have some minor dings and there are a couple of chips and scratches in the paint, but overall, the car is in amazing shape. It drives like a dream. It runs strong and smooth and I have complete confidence driving it fairly long distances. It is really fun to drive. Overall, the seats are in very good shape with the exception the back of the driver's seat, which is coming apart a little bit, and needs some minor repair, and the top of the rear bench seat is showing some surface cracking. This car is in great condition both mechanically and cosmetically.||$17,500|| Kevin Gould
1955 Mercedes-Benz Type W180 220a Ponton sedan
Very nice unrestored example. Last sold in 1993. Runs as it should. Very tight
engine. I found zero rust! Car located in Denver, Colorado.
Equipped with a factory adjustment on the distributor (present on many early M-Bs) designed to provide a manual adjustment (from the driver's position) to eliminate poor fuel knock. The adjustment cable runs from the distributor to the left side of the dash to a knob that rotates. At tune-up time, the knob was rotated to the full timing advance stop before the timing was set. When the car was driven in a country where the octane of the fuel was lower than that of the home country, the owner could retard the ignition timing without leaving the driver's seat, reversing the process when fueling back in the home country. I believe that the cable was eliminated around 1957.

1960 Mercedes-Benz Type W128 220SE Ponton cabriolet
|This 1960 220SE cabriolet was purchased new in Los Angeles and driven home to Las Vegas where it spent the first 40 years in the care of its original owner, who subsequently moved to Santa Fe, bringing the car with him. Black lacquer over red, matching numbers per the build sheet; tool kit, jack and original (though somewhat dog-eared) owner’s manual are included. New convertible top. 76,000 miles showing on the odometer. Due to its life in a dry climate, it remains completely rust free. Received a re-spray four or five years ago, and although the paint is to a relatively high standard re-fitment was not handled with the same attentiveness. Both doors deserve adjustment, some trim has been deformed in remounting, dash refinishing was amateurish. There is the typical split in the leather driver door pocket fold. Nevertheless, it is a great running, matching numbers solid driver that with little additional effort and investment could be brought to a concours level. 45 photos available on request.||$125,000 / OBO||Henry Cowles|
