Mercedes-Benz 'Fintail' Models charts the development of the W110, W111 and W112 'Fintail' (or 'Heckflosse') series, the line that helped revive the Mercedes-Benz brand in the post-war years. With a unique combination of exceptional engineering and a timeless beauty, even the most basic of these vehicles has a charm that is difficult to find in the majority of cars today. After outlining the company's history, the book looks at the development of the first of the 'Fintail' models - the W111- and its launch at the 1959 Frankfurt Show. It also looks at the closely related 1.9 litre W110 and 3.0 litre W112 models, with the vehicles sold in the German, US and UK markets covered in detail. Relating the complete story of the Mercedes-Benz 'Fintail' models from the 1950s to 1970s, it provides an ideal resource for research before restoration, or for detailing existing show cars. Gives background to development, a full production history and comprehensive specification details for all models.
