Predominantly used in Germany, the nickname<em> Heckflosse</em> is used to describe Mercedes models produced from 1959 to 1968, particularly the four-door models. In translation, <em>heck</em> means tail and <em>flosse</em> means fin. The tailfin Mercedes models, also known as <em>Finbacks</em> include the 190, 190D, 220, 200SE and both SWB and LWN 300SE models through 1964. For 1965, the new models were 200, 200D, 230S and the 250SE/W180 replacing the 220SE. The 300SE variants gave way to the new W108/W109 300 models at that time as well.
