The Mercedes-Benz "Ponton" series is a sedan range introduced from 1953, with the presentation of the 180 model.

The term derives from the German word "pontoon", to underline the visually distinct belt line, which goes up from the headlights along the entire length of the car and which recalls the pontoons on a seaplane.

This stylistic innovation, together with the 3-volume bodywork, was considered a decisive step forward in post-war automotive design.

The characteristic features of this body shape, which was first made in the United States in 1946, were the fully integrated mudguards and the rectangular base profile.

In addition to the visual changes, important improvements in passenger safety were introduced through improved accident protection.

These magnificent models of the fifties are documented here with many images, technical data, drawings and advertising reproductions.

All are now sought after collectibles, including elegant convertibles and coupes.
