c.1960 Mercedes-Benz 220SE Cabriolet


Mercedes-Benz debuted four new models at the Frankfurt Show in 1959 – the 220SE among them – all of which shared the same basic unitary-construction bodyshell and all-round independent suspension. Longer than their predecessors, the newcomers featured a wider radiator shell, wrap-around windscreen, wider rear window and vertically positioned twin headlamps. Top speed was now 107mph with 60mph attainable in under 14 seconds. Coupe and convertible models appeared in 1961, minus the already dated-looking tail fins of the saloon. More modern in style, the 220SE coupé and convertible were better appointed too, being equipped as standard with a rev-counter, leather upholstery and four-speed automatic transmission. Front disc brakes were fitted from the start of production.

On offer with us today is a nicely preserved German-delivered 220SE Cabriolet, offered with German registration documents. Finished in Ivory with a Tobacco Brown leather interior, and fitted with the desirable manual gearbox, this is a well priced example of an all time classic Mercedes-Benz of the highest quality.
