Whether you are a Mercedes-Benz fan or not, the Ponton model from the fifties always garners sympathy and admiration. It is a friendly model that evokes memories of the years when the car in general became accessible to more and more families. The Ponton, a nickname that was never officially used as a type designation, was pre-eminently a family car that also had a lot of appeal for use in business traffic.
The example offered by Classic Park is a six-cylinder 219 that was designated by Mercedes-Benz as a W105. Only 27,845 of this type were built, making it a fairly rare car. Like many Ponton models, the car initially left the factory in black. In a later restoration, the black color was changed into white. The partly fabric, partly leatherette upholstery is in very good condition. The robust 2.2 liter six-cylinder is mated to a manual four-speed gearbox with a nostalgic, smooth-shifting gear lever behind the steering wheel. In addition, the car has a Webasto sliding sunroof, which at the time was referred to as a Covertex roof.
