Mercedes Benz reintroduced six-cylinder models to its range in 1951 with the 220 and 300 types. Shown at the Frankfurt Show in the spring of that year, both featured single overhead camshaft engines. A separate chassis was retained for these models, which were replaced in 1956 by a unitary construction called “Ponton.” In 1958, Mercedes Benz updated their popular 220S with the addition of mechanical fuel injection. Thus, the new 1958 Mercedes Benz 220SE Coupe was born, and benefited from increased power to more than 137hp. Internally, the mechanical fuel injection 220SE Coupes were known by body code W128 and an engine code of M127.983. Between October 1958 and November 1960, approximately 830 Coupes would be manufactured alongside both the Cabriolet and Sedan models.
