A Penny for your Ponton? 1959 Mercedes-Benz 180D

The W121 chassis was sold in large quantities by Mercedes after the war and used as taxicabs all around the world.  The name Ponton was given because of the styling of the fenders and is the German spelling of the word pontoon.  Mercedes were built from 1953 to 1961 and were badged with the 180/190 series names.  The Ponton sedans have never really appreciated in price, perhaps giving additional prudence to the theory that sedans will never be collectible…or they are so miserably slow that even the appreciation curve is slow?
