BACKGROUND

The Mercedes-Benz W187 is a luxury car produced by Mercedes-Benz from 1951 to 1955. Introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in April 1951, the W187 was powered by a single overhead camshaft inline six-cylinder M180 engine and available as a saloon, coupé, and cabriolet, all designated with the 220-model name.

HISTORY

This Mercedes-Benz history reaches back to the Manor House of Seestaa Finland.
https://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seestan_kartano
The First owner was Seestaa Manor, this was the Manor house’s vehicle. We have a copy of the old registration certificate showing ownership.
After that it has been owned by collectors here in Finland, many kept amongst their collection.
There was a mild restoration carried out around 11 years ago.
It has been well looked after and kept in a nice condition, registered with the Finnish Museum registry.

PAPERWORK

Included is the Finnish registration certificate, Museum register certificate and a user manual.

EXTERIOR

Beautiful looking vehicle!
It has been resprayed in the original colour, all the inside areas from what I can see are still in the original paint. There are a few marks here and there as would be expected from a used vehicle, the main area is the passenger’s side rear fender. The bodywork is very straight and presentable.
All the chrome parts are in great order, straight and shiny.
Looking under the bonnet is like going back in time, lovely original condition.

INTERIOR

What a great and comfortable place to be.
The interior has been refreshed very nicely, with many original features still present.
All the seats, door cards, roof lining etc are intact without any rips or damages.

MECHANICS

It has always been serviced regularly, including the renewal of any needed parts. Most recently the suspension dampers and exhaust were renewed.
In the summer months it is driven as much as possible to keep everything in working order, also started up now and again when sitting in the winter storage.
A pleasure to drive!
The last inspection (MOT/TUV) was carried out on 09.10.2020, this is due every four years in Finland for a Museum registered vehicle.
Odometer reading is just under 20,000km, there is no record of the true km reading.

UNDERNEATH

The chassis is in great rust-free condition without any clear visible signs of previous repairs, a clear sign that this vehicle has only been used in the summer months.
There are signs of overspray here and there.
