CLASSIC: Mercedes 190 W110 "Fintail" @ Heckflosse @ "Batman"

While I was waiting for my car to be serviced, I chanced upon this Classic car at the Workshop. It's no other than Mercedes 190 W110 Fintail (As known in English speaking countries) @ Heckflosse (as known in Germany and Austria) @ "Batman" (as known in Asian countries).

This model was produced from 1961 to 1967. It's the 1st CAR to have Crumple zones and to be crash tested. It's also 1 of the 1st CAR to have FUEL INJECTION (high end model).

Well, apart from that, I struggled to find decent features, profiles and specifications for this Classic Mercedes W110 series. BUT I did took lots of photos of this car.

There's a saying, A picture's worth 1000 words, well here goes:

Picture 1: The LARGE Steering and dashboard. Note that the car is Air-conditioned and gear shift lever repositioned from Column to floor. Hey, it's "Automatic" transmission. I presumed the Engine and gearbox's changed.

Picture 2: The STEEL Rim cover. Trademark of Mercedes Benz

Picture 3: Rear view of the Classic car.

Picture 4: Side Profile

Picture 5: General view of the car...

AN ORIGINAL JEFF LIM Production. Ie. Photos and write-up DIDN'T SOURCED from ANYONE and/or ANYWHERE.

  1. Wow, priceless beauty bro... These Merc has been proving themselves as the best & unchallenged vehicle by working as a Taxi or "Kereta Sewa" in Kota Bharu for 40-50 years.. Mainly in 200D or 230D, I don't see why these born as survivor cars won't make it on the road for another 40 years, working as humble, yet strong & tough workhorses to the "Pakcik Teksi".
