Mercedes-Benz 'Fintail' Models charts the development of the W110, W111 and W112 'Fintail' (or 'Heckflosse') series, the line that helped revive the Mercedes-Benz brand in the post-war years. With a unique combination of exceptional engineering and a timeless beauty, even the most basic of these vehicles has a charm that is difficult to find in the majority of cars today. After outlining the company's history, the book looks at the development of the first of the 'Fintail' models - the W111- and its launch at the 1959 Frankfurt Show. It also looks at the closely related 1.9 litre W110 and 3.0 litre W112 models, with the vehicles sold in the German, US and UK markets covered in detail. Relating the complete story of the Mercedes-Benz 'Fintail' models from the 1950s to 1970s, it provides an ideal resource for research before restoration, or for detailing existing show cars. Gives background to development, a full production history and comprehensive specification details for all models. Superbly illustrated with 357 colour photographs including period and advertising images sourced from the Mercedes-Benz factory in Stuttgart.

Mercedes-Benz automobiles of the 1950s belong to the most thought after European vintage cars. In this first volume of MERCEDES-BENZ, The Fifties, the reader can experience - how it was to drive the Mercedes 170V back in the 1950s, - how it is to experience a 170S Cabriolet today,- how it is to drive today the first Mercedes 220 six-cylinder car after World War II,- how first German chancellor Konrad Adenauer saw his 300 and why he did not choose a BMW (no, it was NOT the hat), and - how it feels to drive the majestic 300S Roadster today.It covers everything from the Mercedes-Benz 170V sedan of the late 1940s, the 220 and 300 Adenauer series up to the luxurious hand-built 300S and Sc two-door models. But the book does not only deal with the development of the individual models, it also talks about production figures, improvements within the individual model range and looks at the special-built versions such as the OTP series, the pick-ups and station wagons. It discusses coach-built versions such as a 300 Adenauer station wagon, Pinin Farina coupes, a 300S inspired by the Duesenberg cars from the 1930s and it includes never before published color pictures of each model.
