9781479243402: MERCEDES-BENZ, The 1950s, Volume 2: W120, W121, W180, W128, W198
From the Publisher:

This 260 pages book is the third and thoroughly revised edition, published in February 2014. Next to the history of the ponton Mercedes, the 190SL and the 300SL coupe/roadster, it deals with such interesting models as the South African "Bakkie" and a turbo-charged 190SL. It covers the exciting and sometimes even adventurous racing history of the individual models with rare period photos and it takes the reader back to the 1950s, so he can experience how it was to own a Gullwing and drive it for over 400,000 km on its first engine even to such remote locations such as Moscow in Russia.

The book comes with over 250 pictures, the majority of them in colour. Most of the colour pictures are non-Daimler-Benz photos and have never been published in a book before.

The author Bernd S. Koehling has more than 20 e-books and books about Mercedes-Benz to his credit. For a FREE BONUS please scroll to the bottom of this description.
