Description for Mercedes-Benz 200-Series 1966

Beautiful condition with clean interior. 167,272.5 miles.

Mercedes-Benz followed the new 220 "fintail" models with a four-cylinder version to replace the old 180 series. The 190c and 190D (for diesel) were launched in April 1961 and would be produced until August 1965 before the first significant changes. The cabin and trunk were identical to the 220 fintail series but with much less trim, Bakelite interior panels instead of wood, and non-reclining seats.

The front fenders were shorter than the 220, with single headlights on each side of the classic grille like the Ponton model. Turn signals were on top of the fenders, ahead of the windshield, as on the earlier car.

The 190c proved very popular and 130,554 were sold by 1965, when the 90 bhp 1.9-liter OHC engine was replaced by a five-bearing, 2.0-liter, twin-carburetor engine. The new 200 model developed 104 bhp, and raised the top speed to 92 mph. It would be built until 1968.
