Quick Digression - Mercedes 220s - 1956–1959

I walked past this mint Mercedes 220s in Sacramento, CA, today. The hood features deeper carving than I've previously seen on a Merc ... not quite as deep as the 1950-1951 Studebaker Champion, but a nice try. ;-)

"The 220a was succeeded in March, 1956 by the 220S, which was externally almost identical, except for an additional chrome strip running along the front fenders and doors, but had an upgraded version of the 2.2L inline-six (100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp), later 106 PS (78 kW; 105 hp))."
