Daimler-Benz introduced the official estate car program including types 200, 200 D, 230, and 230 S Universal, produced in collaboration with the Belgian assembly plant IMA.
MERCEDES BENZ 250 SE (W 108).
FINLESS and faster, this fine car with the lower, sleeker silhouette has been an instant success. Compared with previous models power is up, the roof is flatter and lower but the windscreen is larger. Disc brakes are fitted all round with improved suspension using a hydro-pneumatic compensating spring on the rear swing axles which pumps itself up to compensate for extra heavy loads.
MERCEDES BENZ 300 SEL (W 109).
SALIENT features of the fabulous 600 in a six-cylinder fuel-injection car of more convenient size and price. Automatic transmission, power steering, and self-levelling air suspension, central servo locking system for all doors, electrically heated rear window, electrically operated sliding roof. The safety steering wheel has a padded hub, instruments are in a shock absorbing safety frame, control knobs are in resilient material.
MERCEDES BENZ 230 SL (W 113).
CYNOSURE of admiring eyes at any sporting get-together, the 230 SL embodies the essence of Daimler-Benz experience in fast car design. Fuel-injection light alloy engine, choice of manual or automatic transmission, and option of an outstanding power steering unit. Rear suspension has low-pivot swing axles with compensator spring. Two body styles, a beautifully equipped convertible roadster and the memorable coupe with the "pagoda" roof line.
MERCEDES BENZ 600 PULLMAN (W 100).
PRESS-BUTTON luxury in a twenty-foot lounge on wheels. Glass division and window; rise and fall at a touch. Servos lock doors trunk and fuel filler.
