Mercedes Benz Oldtimer spare parts

The "Ponton" models of the Mercedes series have today like at that time their charm. Today one hardly sees any differences between the cars of different manufacturers and the motto is minimalism. In contrast, the Ponton models, which have an individual shape and a special external design, stood or stand. In the course of this one should mention especially the radiator cowling Ponton. This was regarded as relatively narrow during the development, which is nowadays hardly understandable for car designers. The radiator grille alone occupied an enormous area at the front of the vehicle.

This type of radiator grille is no longer used today because everything has to be narrow, sporty or elegant. The radiator grille on the Ponton radiator fairing spoke for itself, the chrome bars were omitted, but that didn't really bother. It had a special and unusual effect on the observer. The pontoon with its unusual shape is today one of the classic cars and for this reason it is relatively difficult to get good spare parts.
