This car, first registered in 1965, is an US model, which returned to Germany in 2011. The 2.2-liter inline six-cylinder injection has 88 kW (120 hp) and is connected to a gearbox with steering-column mounted gear lever. The unwarranted mileage is 30,000 mls.
The car is painted in a warm red, the original color was white (MB color code 050). The paint is good with minor blemishes. Chrome is very good, unfortunately the right rear corner guard has a deep dent.
The interior is in beautiful condition with brown leather seats and door panels and carpets in the same colour, as good as new, since it has been partially refurbished in the US according to the previous owner. The wood is likewise said to have been done up and is in fine condition. Another nice detail is the original car radio “Becker Europa TG”. For the black canopy top in good condition there is a tonneau that matches the colour of the interior. Recently. the steering gear has been renewed, tie rods replaced and the wheel alignment checked.
The original owner’s manual is present. Historic plates have already been issued. A recent Classic Data brief appraisal over € 100,000 is available (condition: 2-).
One of only 2,729 examples of this timeless classic!
Do you know a more elegant 4-seater convertible? We do not!
As of February 1961 were available coupé and convertible, called W111, initially using the same technical basis as the sedan model 220 SE 220 SEb/C.
In contrast to its predecessor, coupé and convertible are based on the unshortened platform of the associated sedan and were thus a full four-seater. Coupé and sedan also have many similarities in terms of styling, but not one of the components of the four-door car could be used for the coupé or convertible. More than four times as many parts as for the sedan were made by hand for the coupés and convertibles.
These C-models were the last largely handmade Mercedes, which is why the price for coupés and convertibles was almost twice as high as that of the sedan.
