Harald von Langsdorff Is Selling His 1951 Mercedes-Benz 220B

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.

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.
