1953 Mercedes-Benz 220A Cabriolet California Car
This 1953 Mercedes-Benz 220A Cabriolet is a lifelong California car that's been under the same San Diego doctors ownership since 1977. Tan and brown over ivory leather. Lovingly cared for and maintained it over the years, the car comes accompanied by several service records, jack, and spare. It runs and drives well and shows nicely overall. A clean and solid California car with presentable paint, chrome, and interior. As a whole, the car could benefit from minor cosmetics. The 30 year old paint is beginning to show its age at this point and is not without its flaws. The interior is full of patina and the wood trim could use some attention as well. Introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1951, the performance of the 220A set the tone for future Mercedes with its smooth-running, high-revving engine and sophisticated independent suspension. This particular example is a good driver and an excellent opportunity to own a highly collectible 220A Cabriolet.
