A replacement for the 170 Series, the ‘Ponton’ (German for pontoon, a reference to the styling, which did away with separate wings) saloons were introduced in 1953 and remained the mainstay of Mercedes-Benz production for the remainder of the decade. It was the completely new Mercedes series after World War II.
The 1958 Mercedes on offer is a barn find and an ideal project car for enthusiasts looking to sympathetically restore or initiate a ground-up restoration. The Pontons are known for their simplicity and reliability and could make a wonderful touring car that keeps up to modern speeds and traffic.
This Mercedes is in white colour with red interiors, but the new owner can paint the car in a colour of choice from a number of attractive combinations that were available from the factory. Some easily replaceable cosmetic parts are missing; fortunately, the hard-to-find parts are in place.
Mercedes-Benz Pontons are becoming increasingly difficult to find, and have appreciated exponentially over the years. This Mercedes has sustained signs of age and wear. The car is mechanically complete. Here is an opportunity to become an owner of this timeless classic at a desirous estimate.
