From Wikipedia:

Series production of the 4-door sedan began in August 1959, which made its debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show in autumn. Initially the series consisted of the 220b, 220Sb, and 220SEb. These replaced the (W105) 219, the (W180) 220S and the (W128) 220SE Ponton sedans respectively. The 220b was an entry-level version with little chrome trim, simple hubcaps, and basic interior trim that lacked pockets on doors. Prices were DM16,750, 18,500 and 20,500, with a rough sales ratio of 1:2:1.

All modes shared the 2195cc M127 straight-six engine carried over from the previous generation, producing 95hp (71kW) at 4800 rpm and capable of accelerating the heavy car to 160km/h (155 if fitted with optional automatic gearbox). The 220Sb featured twin carburettors and produced 110hp (82kW) at 5000 rpm, raising top speed to 165km/h (103mph) (160km/h (99mph)) and improving 0-100km/h (62 mph) acceleration to 15 seconds (16 on the 220b). The top range 220SEb featured Bosch fuel injection producing 120hp (89kW) at 4800 rpm, with a top speed of 172km/h (107mph) (168km/h (104mph) for auto) and a 0-100km/h (62 mph) time of 14 seconds.

Mercedes-Benz 220Sb

In 1961, the W111 chassis and body were shared with the even more basic 4-cylinder W110 and a luxury W112 version built on the W111 chassis with its body and the Type 300 series' 3-litre M189 big block 6-cylinder engine, many standard power features, and a high level of interior and exterior trim. The body of the W110 featured a shorter hood, compared to the W111.

A 2-door coupe/cabriolet version of the W111/W112 was also produced.

Mercedes-Benz 220Sb

In May 1965, the 220Sb and 220SEb were replaced by the new 230S. It was visually identical to the 220S,[citation needed] with a modernised 2306cm3 M180 engine with twin Zenith carburettors producing 120hp (89kW) at 5400 rpm. Top speed is 176km/h (109mph) (174km/h (108mph) on auto), acceleration from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) is 13 seconds (15 with automatic transmission). As a successor to the 220b, Mercedes-Benz also introduced the 230, with the 2306cm3 engine fitted into the W110 series car. A total of 41,107 230S models were built through January 1968, when the last of 4-door fintails left the production line.
