    The Mystery Mercedes

    The Mystery Mercedes

    I took this a couple of years ago in Cyprus, although it was a bit of an accident and a bit rushed. The woman who I can only presume owned the car was very confused as to why I was straying into her garden with a camera!

    Any ideas what model it is? Also, as this is my first post, I would love some feedback as to what the more seasoned and experienced of you out there think.

    Thanks a lot.

    To me it looks like an early sixties model. They had "tail fins".

    There is one here:

    Top row, third from left. Maybe following some of the links will get you closer to an ID.

    By the late sixties, the tail fins were gone:

    Late fifties, fenders and no fins:
