The Mercedes Benz 220S Coupe, Cabriolet and Sedan models would be replaced with the 220SE fuel-injected versions in 1959, marking the end of the 220S Ponton. While short-lived, the 1959 Mercedes Benz 220S Coupe is today one of the most sought-after postwar Mercedes Ponton models in the classic car market, especially with only 1,251 Mercedes 220S Coupe models manufactured during its short production run. Another option, while rare, that makes the 220S Coupe desirable is the 4-speed column shift manual transmission with optional Hydrak automatic clutch. The Hydrak automatic clutch did have some problems, and many cars have been converted to use a regular manual clutch. If you find a model with the original, this can add to the value. Additionally, a 220S Coupe model with a 4-speed floor shift is exceedingly rare and sought-after, as most were column shifters. These are just a few things to look for when evaluating a 1959 Mercedes Benz 220S Coupe for purchase.
