The 180 W120 ponton sedan was launched in 1953 and became the first real mass-produced Mercedes. Revised in early 2016, this e-book covers the complete history of both the 180 and 190 models. Chassis number and data card are explained in great detail and a comprehensive buyer’s guide can serve as reference for any would-be ponton owner. The book invites the reader to come along for a ride in an old 180D, it deals with a 190D in the adventurous 1959 cross-Africa rally and covers the highly interesting South African "Bakkie".
Like all books by the author, this guide comes with plenty of recent, non-Daimler AG color photos
