The Fintails were the first in a long line of supremely capable Mercedes sedans–a tradition that continues today–and they’re even more notable for their emphasis on safety at a time when occupant welfare generally wasn’t a high priority. The Fintails were the first Mercedes-Benzes to have been extensively crash-tested, and they also incorporated front and rear crumple zones. The steering wheel and dash top were padded, the windshield was designed to pop out if struck from the inside, the rearview mirror was breakaway, and all switches were made from flexible materials. Even the widely panned vertical speedometer was believed to be safer; contemporary safety experts felt that the design heightened a driver’s feeling of danger as the needle rose toward the top.
This two tone navy and white Fintail is in pristine condition and runs so well it is still used as a daily driver. Its elegant lines and tasteful chrome details are perfect for arriving at any event in style while the German engineered suspension and quality interior provide for a sublime ride.
