Mercedes Benz 220 SEb, letnik 1964 / Mercedes Benz 220 SEb, year 1964

Category : Avtomobilizem · by May 12th, 2013

Pred dnevi sem fotografiral starodobnika, ki me je popolnoma očaral. Mercedes Benz 220 SEb kupe iz leta 1964 je pripeljal iz delavnice podjetja CRC, ki že vrsto let vrhunsko restavrira in predeluje starodobnike. Ta, skoraj 5 metrov dolg mercedesov kupe z oznako W111 je daleč od restavriranega stanja; “Rat rod”, kot bi ga poimenovali čez lužo, z vsemi svojimi praskami, obledelo barvo in kakšnim majhnim koščkom rjaste patine ponosno kaže svoj karakter in krade poglede mimoidočih, ko počasi v taktu svojega 2,2 litrskega bencinskega šestvaljnika vozi po cesti. Treba je poudariti, da je bil ta mercedes v svojih časih pravo tehnološko čudo. Šestvaljnik s prostornino 2.2 litra, zmore 120 konjskih moči (88 kW). Pravzaprav bi bilo to impresivno tudi še nedolgo nazaj, sredi devetdesetih! Dolga in elegantna linija, razkošni krom, nizko podvozje, šestvaljni bencinski motor in udobna v usnje in les obdana notranjost človeka res težko pusti ravnodušnega.

A few days ago I photographed an oldtimer that really blew my mind away. Mercedes Benz 220 SEb Coupe from the year 1964 came straight from the CRC custom shop, that is specialized for custom restorations and modifications of oldtimers. This, almost 5 meters long mercedes coupe with model name W111 is quite far from restored condition. In fact, this Rat rod with all its scratches, blemishes, faded paintjob and patches of rust patina here and there is really proudly showing his character and is a real head turner as it slowly drives down the road in the orchestral sound of it’s 2.2 litre straight six engine. And please mind that this eye catcher was a technological wonder back in his days. Six cylinder 2.2 liter engine with mechanical fuel injection delivers impressive 120 horsepower (88 kW). In fact, this would still be impressive in the mid 90’s! Long, sleek and elegant lines, lowered suspension, rich chrome trim, six cylinder engine and leather and wood interior can sure rock your world.
