When you think of Mercedes, the first things that come to mind have to do with the design and engineering of their cars — think streamlined, think efficient, think luxurious. Trailers might not be in that initial crop of thoughts — or in any thoughts you’d have about Mercedes, period. But a vintage Mercedes-Benz coupé now for sale via Mechatronik offers all the design hallmarks you’d expect from the marque — plus an eminently stylish trailer.

As noted by Robb Report, this 1960 car has several things in its favor. The Mercedes-Benz W128 220 SE Ponton was made by Mercedes-Benz for a decade, beginning in 1953. The version currently on sale features a sunroof and a 105 horsepower engine, and it’s only traveled 36,000 miles over the last 60-plus years.

If this sounds enticing and you have €119,000 (just over $131,000) to spare, this can be yours — though if you’re not based in Germany, getting it to you might pose a challenge.

What’s particularly intriguing about this is the trailer, which is one of 1,300 made, and — as per Robb Report’s article — one of only a handful that’s survived until the present day. Reclining seats, a retractable roof and a comfortable bed all round out the package, making any road trip that much more stylish.
