Type 220 (W 187), 1951 - 1955

At the first Frankfurt International Motor Show in April 1951, Daimler Benz unveiled the passenger car W187 Series Type 220 model with a new M180 6-cylinder engine that included an overhead camshaft. Except for its 2.2-liter engine producing 80 hp, the 220 model was based mainly on the 170 S, with the chassis and car body being almost identical aside from the 220 having headlights that were integrated into the front front fenders. Additionally the front wheels of the 220 model were equipped with duplex brakes. Jump to Manuals

These Mercedes-Benz W187 vehicles were available as a saloon, coupé, and cabriolet, all designated with the 220 model name. The two different cabriolet models were conceived as exclusive sporting cars of prominent character, and produced in limited quantity with 1,278 of the Cabriolet "A" (2-door, 2/3-seat) and 997 of the Cabriolet "B" (2-door, 4-seat) versions being built. Additionally, between August 1952 and May 1953, 41 special soft top "OTP" bodied W187 220 models were produced for the police.

In October 1952, eight ambulance cars were produced at Lueg in Bochum, and between October 1952 and July 1954 more than 30 police radio-cars were built by the body maker Binz in Lorch on the basis of the 220 chassis.

Mercedes Benz W187 Production Specs Sheet

The 220 models used the newly developed M180.I (M180.920) six cylinder 2195cc engine that produced 80 hp DIN (86 SAE) (59 kW) with a 6.5:1 compression ratio. However, from April 1954 onwards, both coupe and cabriolet types were fitted with a more powerful 85 hp engine with a higher compression, which had been developed for its successor W180 model 220 a, production which started in June 1954. The higher horsepower limited production models were mated to a four-speed manual transmission, while the chassis included hydraulic drum brakes that were placed at all four corners including front wheels equipped with duplex brakes.

With the sedan/saloon bodied cars about to be discontinued by the manufacturer in May 1954, the "Cabriolet A" and its Coupé derivative were fitted with the newer higher compression M180.II (M180.921) 85 PS (63 kW) 7.6:1 compression ratio engine in April 1954, which had been developed for the soon to be announced Ponton bodied Mercedes-Benz W180. These faster sporting versions of the W187 continued in production for a few more years.

The W187 220 saloon was replaced by the W105 and W180 line in 1953-1954. The Coupé and Cabriolet "A" continued production for another 15 months until July and August 1955 respectively, before they were dropped from production as well.
