The Mercedes-Benz W120 180 was an inline-four cylinder sedan introduced by Mercedes-Benz in 1953. Powered initially by the company’s existing 1.8 liter M136 engine, it was sold as the Mercedes-Benz 180 through 1962. The 180 continued to use the 56 PS (41 kW; 55 hp) M136 engine until 1957, when it received a down-tuned version of the 190’s M121.
Various diesel powered 180s were produced from 1953 to 1962. Jump to Manuals
