Why is the W105 not mentioned ?

As the owner of a 219 for some 34 years , I wonder why this model is not included in your Ponton line up ?

because it's an incredibly rare model in OZ with none in NZ. I've only ever seen one.

Pontoneer - please post some photos of this rare beast. The bunyip of the Ponton range. In Canberra I have seen a Ponton coupe a couple of times, which I thought was pretty rare, and very pretty.
