You are looking at something very extraordinary in the world of classic Mercedes-Benz motoring. This is a set of 1960 220SE's, a Coupe and a Cabriolet, which have CONSECUTIVE SERIAL NUMBERS. The serial # for the 220SE Convertible is 12803010003553. The serial # for the 220SE Coupe is 12803711003554.
The Convertible was built for the European market and the Coupe was for US delivery. The Convertible has yellow front and rear signal lights, European style headlights, and a fold down rear seat where extra luggage could be stored. The accompanying consecutively serial numbered Coupe has clear front parking lights, sealed beam headlights, body-mounted rear reflectors, a rare Webasto sunroof and a Hydrak semi-automatic transmission.
They are completely furnished including factory headrests, fitted luggage, book-matched burled walnut dash trim, premium Becker Mexico radios and all manuals and tool kits. The Coupe is also equipped with the Bosch town and country horns. These are 2 of only 1942 fuel injected coupes and convertibles produced between 1958 and 1960.
All mechanical parts were rebuilt to factory standards. Both engines were bored and sleeved back to standard size and fitted with new standard pistons. The engines were balanced and assembled back to original factory specifications. All sheet metal parts were stripped and finished to new condition using old world metal-finishing techniques. Glassodur Urethane acrylic finishes were applied to the body surfaces. All the chrome and wood interior parts were refinished to new or better standards.

The 220SE featured a unitized body/frame construction and fully independent suspension.
