These are generally referred to by their ‘Ponton’ nickname, which is German for pontoon and refers to the slab-sided appearance. The 180 and 190 have four-cylinder engines and were much better from 1957-on when they received an overhead-cam engine in place of the old sidevalve unit. There was also a popular though underpowered 180D diesel option. 220s sit on a longer wheelbase and have six-cylinder engines, so they are of course worth more. These were the cars that started Mercedes’ reputation for build quality and dependability.
