1960 Mercedes Ponton

Garden of England Classics Wedding Car Hire Kent Mercedes PontonGarden of England Classics 1961 Mercedes Ponton is a superb example of the German marques upmarket saloon. Called the W120 series, it is more commonly known as the “Ponton”, which is the German name for “pontoon”.

Our Ponton was bought new in 1960 and was collected at the factory in Stuttgart in West Germany, before being driven back to the UK. It was quite the adventure and the owner will be more than happy to share it. The Mercedes has been owned by the same family since new and it is a regular sight at the Goodwood Revival.

The Ponton is an elegant motor and has the added benefit of a full Webasto Sunroof. This is a full length fabric sunroof, which opens all the way back and allows for some memorable photos of the Bride and Groom.

Powered by a 1.9ltr engine with a column change manual gearbox, the Mercedes-Benz Ponton harks back to a more relaxed era. Our car will take you on a relaxing journey to your ceremony, where you will arrive in style.

The Chauffeur Driver will arrive dressed in a retro style suit that would have been appropriate to the period of the Ponton series, which adds something a little extra the the nostalgic driving experience.

Package Bolt Ons and Extras

Below are the options and extras you can add to your hire. These allow you to tailor the hire to suit your special day. If you need to discuss any of these options please do get in touch.

The Get Away Package - £45

With more and more couples choosing to hold their ceremony and reception at the same venue, it is often hard for them to get a break from all the attention. So why not add our Get Away Package to your booking. Our driver will take the bride and groom on a 30 minute drive after the ceremony, while their guests head off and prepare for the reception.

Additional Hours Hire - £55

If your ceremony will take longer than usual and you would like the driver to wait longer for photos, we can add this to your package. This adds an extra time cushion to the hire and lets the Bride and Groom enjoy the after ceremony and not have to keep an eye on the clock.

Bubbly Beverage - £12

Why not add a refreshing beverage to the occasion by adding a bottle of non alcoholic sparkling wine to the package. We would love to offer champagne but unfortunately it is actually illegal to serve alcohol without a license. So our alternative is to serve something non-alcoholic which will still look the part in the photos.

Extra Mileage Allowance

Sometimes the travel on the day will exceed our standard 20/30 mile allowance. If the total journey length is more than the allowance, we charge an additional £1.50 per mile to cover fuel costs. This also adds extra flexibility if there is a large group of bridesmaids that require multiple trips.
