My friend and frequent rally driver, Harald von Langsdorff, is selling his 1951 Mercedes-Benz 220B. This car is for sale via an auction on the Bring-A-Trailer website. I have provided a link to that website at the bottom of this post.
1951 Mercedes-Benz 220B
This car is in excellent shape and I know that Harald has been regularly updating this car over the years.
The “Suicide” Style Front Doors Make Entry & Enter Easy
Inside, outside, top and underneath, this car is in great shape. I know that Harald does not do things in half measures and this car had been very well treated and cared for. Harald has owned this car since 2008 and I doubt that this car has even spent one night outside since that time.
The Car’s Interior Is In Great Shape
This particular car has better performance than most Mercedes-Benz 220B cars of this year. The original cylinder head was replaced with a later 220S Ponton unit featuring dual Solex carburetors. This improvement gives the car a significant power increase up to around 95 horsepower – an almost 20% increase over the stock 1951 Mercedes-Benz 220B output of 80 horsepower.
This Car Has Been Fitted With Twin Carburetors
