Do you know the feeling when you have to go shopping with your wife and just every pair of trousers that she likes doesnt seem to fit right? Your own, old, maybe just worn-out pair of jeans feels much more comfortable than all the new ones she points out to you! Exactly like sitting in your own, slightly scruffy Chesterfield chair, the one in which you like reading your favorite classic car magazines, is for you the best place at home. Well this nicely mellowed classic Mercedes-Benz 220S Convertible will give you exactly the same wonderful feeling. This 220S is the very definition of patina. Throughout her whole life she was carefully maintained with respect to originality, without compromise to reliability or comfort. When you open the bonnet, you see how an unrestored but well cared-for 220S engine compartment looks like after nearly 60 years: like opening your little toy box, back when you were just a kid. Covered in discreet layers of dust and lubricant vapors, the engine is still very powerful and oil-tight. No unusual rattles or knocks. Just great! The paintwork looks very original and fits the complete picture of authenticity perfectly. No rust bubbles or ugly scratches here, completely rust-free! This 220S even passes the normal, more thorough Belgian MOT without any issues. Grab the solid chrome door handles and feel how a real car door should open and close: like a classic Remington safe. Take a seat in the original gunmetal-grey leather interior, which is, yes you guessed right, exactly as comfortable as your old Chesterfield chair back home. Only in this cockpit you are surrounded by magnificent walnut burl woodwork and a period Becker Mexico radio, which can even give an unmistakable patina to the most recent songs. Turn the key, press the starter button and the inline -six purrs instantly with great persuasion. Shift the steering column gear lever upwards and drop the clutch smoothly. Driving is just so easy and it feels so great that it is like you never left that comfy Chesterfield chair back home.
