1960 Mercedes-Benz 220SE Ponton Coupe

Description

A shorter wheelbase was adopted for the cabriolet model of the 220 that appeared in May 1956 and also for the coupé introduced the following year when the Hydrak semi-automatic transmission become available as an option. Luxuriously equipped in the best Daimler-Benz tradition, these superbly constructed Gran Turismos were priced some 70% above the 220S saloon.

In 1958 the 220 range was updated with a fuel-injected version of the 2.2-litre overhead-camshaft six, becoming the 220SE, though manufacture of the carburettor-equipped models continued into 1959, the saloons bowing out in July and the coupé and cabriolet in October of that year. By the time production ceased, only 3,429 220S coupé and cabriolet models had been manufactured and today these elegant and exclusive limited edition Grand Tourers are highly prized.

This later and more desirable Dutch-registered fuel-injected 220SE Coupe is in truly fine condition, having enjoyed much restoration work to bring it up to the standard you see here today. This elegant coupe is finished in brown over beige with a lovely contrasting light tan interior. These six cylinder sports coupes offer exceptional value and elegance for relatively little outlay, and this car represents a rare opportunity to acquire a wonderful example whilst this still remains the case.
