Mercedes-Benz W110 model entered the automotive scene in 1961, to compete in the Executive Car segment. It was one of the renowned ‘Fintail’ series that replaced the legendary ‘Ponton’ that preceded it. Over 628,000 W110s were built in total and sold around the world, with assembly taking place in Germany as well as Venezuela and Australia, over two series. This 1967 Mercedes-Benz 230 Sedan is from the second series that ran between 1965 and 1968. Whilst the mileage is not known on this Virginia car, the pictures show it to be in good condition, inside and out, and a worthy contender for someone with an interest in classic Mercedes-Benz vehicles or Sixties German cars. Just 40,258 units of the second-series 230 variant were built.
The design of the W110 included the incorporation of front and rear crumple zones, as well as increased passenger cabin space. This 1967 Mercedes-Benz 230 Sedan wears a straight beige paint job and rolls on a set of Mercedes-Benz steel wheels with shiny chromed hubcaps, typical for the period that wear reportedly new tires. The chrome detailing on this car appears to be in excellent condition, as do the badging. The interior sports a tan color theme with plush leather seats offering space for five occupants with lap belts for front occupants. The characteristic thin-rimmed black Mercedes-Benz steering wheel features a chromed horn ring, and linear styled speedometer in a vertically oriented gauge cluster directly ahead. It’s reported that this car has air conditioning installed as well. A VDO clock and push-button radio feature on the center console as well. Pop the trunk and you’ll find the spare wheel tucked neatly on a side.
This 1967 Mercedes-Benz 230 Sedan is powered by the largest engine available on the W110, the 2.3L M180 in-line six cylinder with single overhead cam, that put out 120hp to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission. The carburetor on this car has reportedly been rebuilt. New brake shoes have been reported as well, for improved stopping performance. These cars were not meant to be performance monsters, but the zero to sixty time of less than 12 seconds and top speed of 106mph when new still remain perfectly respectable.
