Mercedes Benz Fintail (German: Heckflosse) is a nickname given to the W110, W111, and W112 series of Mercedes sedans produced from 1959 to 1968. These replaced the Ponton series sedans introduced in 1953.
These series' modest tailfin era styling reflected the US-led trend. In Mercedes terminology the short rear fins were designated Peilstege, parking aids which marked the end of the car for aid in backing.
The production series included:
- Six-cylinder sedans
- Four-cylinder sedans
- 1961–68 Mercedes-Benz W110 — 190c, 190Dc (1961–65), 200, 200D, 230 (1961–65)
The fintails were only insinuated on two-door coupé and cabriolet versions.
