This is a Mercedes 190. its factory name is w121. this is the version after the face lift of ’58. The difference are made in the front. The indicators are placed above the lights and the grill is bigger. the w121 was build from 1956 until 1961. it looks a lot like the 180 but it has a faster (albeit still slow though 🙂 ) and more modern engine. The easiest way to see the difference is the chrome line underneath the windows. The quality of these cars is legendary and a lot of the 171.846 ever build cars are still on the road.

Again, this car is spotted in Oslo… Rolph better starts posting some cars of Coolhaven, or rename the site 😉

    Good thing that I didn’t photoshop the number plates, then… Normally, I do, but for unknown reasons I failed to do so on this car. 🙂
