Over at Autoshippers, we’ve recently had the pleasure of shipping a classic Mercedes to Hong Kong, China: The Mercedes-Benz 220 S Ponton (1959).
These stunning cars first came off the line in 1953, nicknamed Ponton (German for Pontoon) as a nod to the pontoon-like styling of the body which resembles the pontoons found on seaplanes.
This car ranges dramatically in price, from around £10,000 to over £100,000 depending on the variation, condition and mileage.
A 220 SE Cabriolet from 1960, for example, is on Classic Trader for just under £132,000.
Interestingly, the Ponton range of Mercedes cars are thought to be the beginning of the lineage of the E-Class range.
The team at Autoshippers are always excited to see a piece of history such as this pass through our hands and we’re always happy to help it reach it’s new home overseas.
