Vehicle shows missing trim and quite a bit of surface rust.   What the 220s lacked in sleek design it made up for with class.  Long wood dash, art deco gauges, and a large steering wheel.   Vehicle appears to retain some of the original hub caps.

While not the equivalent of the 220s coupe, the Sedan retains interest as a collectors vehicle.  It’s 2.2L inline-six produced a stout 99-hp.  Only 55,279 220S sedans and 3.429 cabriolets and coupes were built.

Rarely seen on the streets of KC, this would surely be a head turner.  Check out some restored versions to se the impressive interior and wood dash.  Not clear if white was the original color.  Some other color combinations, including two-tone, are impressive.  This 1959 Mercedes Benz 220S is for sale in Overland Park, Kansas.  Check out seller’s listing on Facebook Marketplace for more details and contact information.  Thank you John S for forwarding!
