1958 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series 220S CABRIOLET

In 1956 Mercedes-Benz began to offer their 220 model in a lavish coupe and cabriolet that sold in much smaller numbers than the sedan they were based off. From July 1956 until late 1959, 2,178 cabriolets were made alongside 1,251 coupes and over 55,000 sedans. These cars used the M180.924 inline-6 engine which was one of the last to use regular carburetors over an injection system. The single carb units produced around 100 bhp while the later cars used two Solex 32s to produce 105 bhp. All the cars used a 4-speed manual transmission, but Mercedes-Benz did offer a Hydrak automatic clutch that used switches in the column shift lever to activate.
