219 Power brakes

Hi Gang,

I just drove a '59 219 and it did not have the power brake booster. Was it an option for 1959?

Thanks

I'm quite sure it was standard. That's what the tech info says on the mbzponton website. BUT, it says that brake booster was standard on all models but 180/190. That's not completely true; for 190 SL, power brakes was not standard until sometime about mid '56.

My Dec. 1959 W105 parts book calls the brake booster "Special Request" and shows two different master cylinders, for with and without the booster. Could it have been standard in the US ?

Cavedog, I see now that wiki also says it was optional: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_W105

According to the 1960 Technical Data Manual (TDM) @ 42, the brake booster was an original option on all pontons, including the 219. It was mandatory on the 220S and 220SE. This TDM does not cover the 220a. Alan in Oz, however, reports that he owns two 220a pontons, one lacking the booster and the other with it. In addition, the 220a shares the 180 series number with the 220S. It is, therefore, conclusive to me that boosters were an option on the 220a during that model's 2-year production run. The 220S and 220SE got the T50/12 except that early 220S models got the T50 don't know the changeover date). The four-bangers got the T50. The 219 also got the T50.
