Thank you very much for your interest ... Matvh answering your questions, I'll tell you that these are the original car pistons, and coming out in the last photo IS NOT NEW, but one of the original restored by me.
The rest of the car similarly think restore because it is a great challenge for me to go one by one recovering parts.
Regarding technical data, this is not new for me as I have previously restored several Mercedes (1.958 300 D "Adenauer" W 189), (1.955 300 "Adenauer" W 186 cabrio ) (1.953 300 SC W188), (1,958 190 SL W121) and 1.964 W113 230 SL "pagode" ) .For this reason, I have all the necessary documentation.
As for the production of 220 W 187, here I put some data.
Mercedes-Benz W187 is an automobile produced by Which was Mercedes-Benz from 1951 to 1955 Introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in April 1951 as a six-cylinder luxury car, it was sold in sedan, coupe, and cabriolet body styles, all With the 220 model name. Over six decades several very different models Have Been branded as a "Mercedes-Benz 220 of" which is why the 1951 car is now Usually Identified internal ITS works using number as the Mercedes-Benz W187.
Cabr. A: 1,278
Cabr. B: 997
This car marked a new era, as it was the first six-cylinder Mercedes built after the Second World War and is a transition between the 170 (which takes its body) and 300 "Adenauer", from which it takes its front, being the first post-war car that already has the headlights recessed into the front fenders, unlike previous models (170) that even carry over fender (typical design before the war).
Well, since returning to the restoration, and as I think about seeing the parts before and after, I made an aesthetic test the upper engine cover and a wood trim door, so that you may appreciate how much work patiently and parts "resurrect"
