1961 220SE engine?

Good morning folks.

I'm looking at a 1961 (or 1960) 220SE sedan "fintail". The engine has the early two-piece intake manifold, and short arm front subframes, so it's a very early fintail 220SE.

Chassis 111.014 10 015137
Body A 111.014 10 03360
Engine 127.982 10 014812

I always thought the engine number should be relatively close to the body number (last five digits). This engine is over 11000 away from the body number.

Did MB continue the ponton 220SE engine, and thus the series numbers, straight into the early 220SE fintail?

Thanks.
Tom
