1965 MB 220S AMG 'Carrera Panamericana'
Unique race car with 3.6 AMG Engine (330 hp)
3 times Carrera Panamericana participant
Our outstanding Mercedes Benz was delivered new in Mexico by Reyza S.A. on July 1st 1965 as shown on the original bill of sale provided. This astonishing car went through a complete conversion into a real race car. The engine was changed for a 1993 3.6 litres AMG straight six with double overhead camshafts, fed by three Weber 45 carburattors and producing around 330 hp.
All the other mechanical components were upgraded, which includes a large aluminium radiator, and three extra radiators for motor oil, gearbox and differential cooling.
The gearbox was swapped for a 5 speed manual by Tremec. The brakes are Brembo and four Bilstein shock absorbers were fitted.
Inside, two OMP bucket seats with five points harnesses replace the original interior. They face a Nardi steering wheel and a very complete dashboard that includes tachometer, oil and fuel pressure, coolant temperature and voltmeter. A circuit breaker is fitted inside and outside.
This true racer was raced during three Carrera Panamericana and at the Rally Maya, proving its quality and reliability.
