Mercedes-Benz 180 – SW 2nd Ave & Gibbs St, Portland, OR

November 15th, 2010 by Emir

Known as the “Ponton” cars, these handsome 180s were produced way back, between ’53 and ’62. In much the same way that BMW’s little 2002 paved the way for the 3-Series we know and love today, these 180s represented the first ‘small’ Mercedes, widely known as a C-Class today. Though not as dramatic as the Fintail models that eventually replaced them, the 180/190’sĀ form is handsome for its simplicity and stately elegance. It changed very little during its nearly 10-year production run.
