Mercedes 200
Following the success of the 190 series produced from 1961(over 350,000 cars), Mercedes announced a facelifted, more powerful 200 series in 1965.

The new car looked similar to the out-going 190, which meant it retained the "Fintail" rear wings and angular styling.

Using the same body as the former 190C sedan, the most obvious styling change was the relocation of the indicators from the cowl to the front.

The 200 had minor trim differences, the rear tail lights were re-designed and the designers incorporated a narrow chrome strip at the rear window for air ventilation.

The 200 now had servo assisted, dual-circuit brakes with front discs and came with a choice of floor or column mounted gearchange.

The petrol engined 200 had twin-carbs which produced around 95bhp.

Production of the "Fintail" 200 lasted until 1968 and, during the first year of its life, was the smallest of the seventeen models of passenger cars manufactured by Mercedes.
