This is a 1957 220S Mercedes Ponton owned by one family until I bought it four years ago, garage since. The only reason the car was sold to me was because the great grandson of the original owner prefer a ford mustang instead of his parents promising to fully restore the Mercedes for him. When I bought the car, I was promise the car was in good condition, which was very true.  All I did was purchased a new battery, clean the gas tank, change the spark plugs, oil, new tires with atlas 13” white port-A-walls and fuel  it and she started right up, no smoke from the tail pipe what so ever. Currently register in California till 4/24/2014. Fully insured with AAA!

Car runs good. Paint is between fair and good but new paint will make it really nice. Some detail work will definitely bring the paint out. Good condition for its age, very clean and shows okay.  Chrome is in good shape with little to no dents. 

Interior shows really well with viewer’s perception, wood have been refinished to a deep gloss. The gauges are working, as lights and turning signals. Wipers are there but not working.  Seats and door panels are all in good shape; Head liner is in fair condition, driver seat stitching started to come apart in one small area about an inch and a half.  All interior chrome is in good condition.  Clock is not working at this time. Radio is not working too.

I have really enjoyed this beautiful car for the past four years. Everywhere I go, I get outstanding compliments. Now is time for the Mercedes purest turn to secure this car and preserve its value and dignity. Buy it and drive home!!!

Next Mercedes-Benz C-Class to get diesel, hybrid versions

Tue, 16 Apr 2013

Mercedes-Benz is planning a more aggressive product strategy for its next-generation C-Class range. "We were fighting the 3 Series with two arms tied behind our back, and now we will change that," Steve Cannon, the automaker's US CEO, told Automotive News in a recent interview.
In addition to offering more body styles of the new C-Class, AN reports that the revamped Mercedes will also be offered here with hybrid and diesel powertrains. Currently, the C-Class comes in coupe and sedan variants, with only gasoline engines. The BMW 3 Series, however, is available as a sedan, coupe, convertible and wagon, and offers buyers the choice of gasoline, diesel (the upcoming 328d) or hybrid power.
Mercedes-Benz will show the next-generation C-Class at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, with sales of the US-built sedan following in August. Coupe, convertible and hybrid models will follow in early 2015, and while diesel and all-wheel-drive versions are planned, no specific timetable has been released regarding availability.

Volvo S60 Polestar concept plays in the snow with Mercedes C63 AMG

Thu, 24 Jan 2013

Chris Harris took to a snowy stretch of tarmac to get a fingertips-on-the-wheel feel of the Volvo S60 Polestar concept. Harris says the turbocharged sedan with 508 horsepower and 424 pound-feet of torque - and a manual transmission - is "a study to see if Volvo can get back into the fast-car market." The Polestar S60 concept, one of which was already purchased for $300,000 by a private buyer, is still making the publicity rounds because even Volvo's Chinese owners realize that, as Harris says, "Volvo sold more cars because it made fast cars" like the old 850 T5 Wagon that stormed the British Touring Car Championship in the 1990s.
For reference, Harris compares the blue wonder to the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and its 487 hp and 442 lb-ft. The question is, were Volvo to get the price of a production version of the S60 Polestar to climb way down from its 200,000-pound sticker, could it be worthy competition to the established giants?
You can watch Harris divine the answer via a lot of drifting through the snow and a drag race in the video below.

Mercedes to market Tesla-powered 2014 B-Class EV in U.S.

Thu, 05 Jul 2012

Looks like another Tesla Motors investor will be looking to cash in on their connection. Autoweek reports Mercedes-Benz will offer their B-Class in the U.S. with Tesla propulsion.
The magazine says their source at the German automaker confirms plans for a B-Class electric-only vehicle. While Tesla already provides battery packs for the battery-powered Smart ForTwo, the B-Class EV will reportedly have Tesla batteries, motor and other components. U.S. residents should be able to procure one sometime in 2014.
The same Mercedes source says plans for a hybrid B-Class have been postponed for now. Adding a range-extending, gasoline-powered engine to an electric vehicle would put the car into a different class for which rebates and incentives aren't as favorable in the States.
