YAK Car Pic of the Day

The Mercedes-Benz 220S was produced from 1954-59. As per usual, not many changes were made visually from year-to-year. The 220S featured a 2.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine, mated to — something you didn’t see on American cars of the period — a column-mounted manual four-speed transmission (four-on-the-tree); an automatic was optional. This white example, which has the optional canvas sunroof, was seen yesterday in a Wheatfield repair shop parking lot. Here’s a link to a brochure page, showing the various 1957 sedan models.
