This is definitely a W 108, either 250S or 280S.
Seems this car is being tortured, work being done sporadically. Car has good potential, some seriousness is required here.

Cheers harit

This car is back in the Ballard Estate building and gives company to a W112 and a W140 S Class.

Looks to be a 219 with parking lights of a Willys/Mahindra CJ. Front bumper too looks incorrect. Open to correction though.

Cheers,

Looks like a first series 220, probably 1954/5 or so.

Three piece bumper is correct for period, some of these cars did come with these odd looking and ugly side lights, seems the lens covers have been changed at some time.

Interior shots would confirm the model, but my bet is on 220a.

Where is it in BLR ?. The architecture feels like Kerala.

Difficult to tell the difference from the exterior trim if this is a 220S or 220a if i am not mistaken 220S replaced the 220a in 1956. I know that 219's had bakelite interiors and 220S had wood and so did the 220a's. But the beehive lenses in the front are US spec and maybe this car was a US import.
Very rare to see a 6 cylinder Ponton nowadays.

I have seen a ponton in vyttila bypass at a Garage near to the Gold souk mall. It was KRH registered. When enquired I was told that it was the car used by the Bishop of the Thrissur Diocease and awaiting its buyer from Salem/Bangalore.

@ voodoochild and Alvis - Didn't take interior pics and rear pics , should have taken few more, I realize now..

@ Foby - AJ is right, its Ayurvedagram. Slightly OT, how did you manage to correctly identify its Kerala architecture

That Merc looks pretty cool...love the color on it and those streamline indicators on the fender tops look so much better than the ones that sit by the door on some models
