Mercedes doesn't usually make model year changes like American car companies do. There are some minor differences in the 6 cyl version, high hood vs low hood for instance. They will make a mid model run change with some accumulated updates though, called Version One and Version Two. The W111 sedans that came out in 1959 had a version change in 1963, the W126 had a version change, the year escapes me, which included going from 14" to 15" wheels.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
