This wonderful vintage 1960 Mercedes 220SE Cabriolet has the 140 horsepower, 2.2 liter, 6 cylinder, overhead cam, fuel injection engine. It has the 4-speed gearbox, wishbones and coil suspension front, swing axle and coil suspension rear, 4-wheel servo-assisted brakes and 106.3" wheelbase. It has a stainless exhaust system and Michelin Radials. It has 15,550 miles since restoration and has a top speed of over 100 miles per hour. It's black with a tan top and interior, and has beautiful woodgrain dash and door panel trim. Both exterior and interior are in superb condition with no rust, dents, scratches, or tears, but has one small ding on the driver's side door trim and a small scrape on the front edge of the front left wheel well trim. The carpet and wood are in excellent condition and the soft top, headliner and soft top tonneau cover are all in good condition. All of the instruments work, even the clock. This car is truly in spectacular condition, very mechanically sound and a great driving automobile.
This Mercedes Benz has had five documented owners from new with the current owner being the fifth. It was originally purchased and owned in Southern California for its first 30 years. A subsequent owner restored it in 1996. Along with the original owner's manual, there is a large binder of extensive records documenting the history and restoration of this high point Mercedes.
This was considered top of the line for the Mercedes 220 series and it sold for $7,700 in 1960. It is considered one of the best driving of the vintage Mercedes Benz models. Total production on this model was 1,112. This is a gorgeous automobile and priced properly.
