The Mercedes-Benz 220 Heckflosse were sedan cars that were produced during the years 1959-1968. 


'Heckflosse' in German means 'tailfin' which was a type of tail style that were used in 60's by several brands including Chrysler, Chevrolet and Cadillac. While the purpose of these tail shaped fins in America was to improve the wind resistance at the tail side, Mercedes-Benz's idea to introduce them were to improve the sight line or 'peilstege' (a hypothetical line from someone's eye to what is visualised). 


Mercedes-Benz also introduced the safety steering wheel with the W111 and W112 models. Automatic gearbox, power steering and air-suspension were standard features. 


Mercedes used the tailfin design extensively for their W110, W111 (this was the 220 model that came with a 2.2 litre, 6 cylinder engine) and W112 (this was the 300 SE that came with a powerful 3 litre, 6-cylinder engine) models.


This particular car was used in a long drive across Australia to collect funds for charity. In the process it got sponsored by several firms and collected over US$ 8 million. This car was purchased by the Mercedes-Benz musuem and one can view this iconic car if you are at Stuttgart.


An extremely rare collectible in 1:43, this metal model has been gathering value over the years. Extremely rare collectible as only limited pieces were created.
