Mercedes W111 Service Repair ManualsThe Mercedes-Benz W111 was a chassis code given to a range of Mercedes’ vehicles produced between 1959 and 1971. These models included the four-door sedans (1959-1968), two-door coupés, and cabriolets (1961 to 1971). Introduced as inline 6-cylinder cars with 2.2-litre engines, the W111 series shared its chassis and body with a couple other variants:  Jump to Manuals

Mercedes Benz W111 Workshop Manuals

The W111 Sedan body -like its variants, was modern for the time and featured characteristic American-style tailfins that gave the models their Heckflosse nickname — German for “fintail”. The W111 Series production of the 4-door sedan began in August 1959, and debuted at the Frankfurt Auto Show that fall. Initially the series consisted of the 220b, 220Sb, and 220SEb. The 220b being an entry-level version with basic chrome, hubcaps, and simple interior trim.

All modes shared the 2195 cc M127 straight-six engine carried over from the previous generation, producing 95 hp (71 kW). The 220Sb featured twin carburetors and produced 110 hp (82 kW) . In May 1965 Mercedes-Benz added the 2.3 litre 6-cylinder W111, designating the model the 230S. The 230S power came from the M180 2,306-cc, OHC inline-six equipped with a pair of two-barrel, downdraft Zenith carburetors and a 9:1 compression ratio. The 230 S produced 120 hp (DIN, about 135 hp SAE gross) at 5,400 RPM. Torque peaked at 145-lb.ft. at 4,200 RPM. Mercedes offered the 230 S with a choice of four-speed transmissions: automatic or roll your own.

The 220SE was superseded in early autumn 1965 by the 250SE, featuring the new 2496 cm3 M129 engine producing 150 hp (110 kW). Then in November 1967 the 250 SE was superseded by the 280 SE that was powered by the new 2778 cc M130 engine producing 160 hp (120 kW).
