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.
