1957 Mercedes 220s

I purchased this car a couple years ago. This is the first Mercedes I have ever owned. Does anyone know the history if these cars? Someone told me that when they were in the service they seen these cars being used as a taxi? I may be in the wrong thread, if so I apologize, I have never used forums that much before.

Welcome to the forum. A great bunch of people here to get all the info you will need about your car. I personally don't know much about your car, but I'm sure others will chime in. Please post some more photos when you get a chance, interior and engine too.

Are you sure that's your car? I'm pretty sure this is the LS1 swap with custom interior that's currently for sale on eBay:

yes I am sure it is my car. Yes it is the same one that is for sale on Ebay. I had some people that were interested in the car that was asking me some questions that I could not answer, Therefore I figured this would be a great place to try and find out.
