1961-1965 MERCEDES-BENZ 220SEb Coupe/Cabriolet specifications

1961-1965 MERCEDES-BENZ 220SEb Coupe/Cabriolet specifications Classic and Performance Car

First incarnations of Paul Bracq’s elegant coupé and convertible body designs which lasted over a decade and are regarded by some as the best looking Mercedes of the classic era. Interior trimmings are also of the highest quality, beautifully detailed. It may not had had anything like the same performance, but you can see why these cost similar money to an Aston Martin DB4 back in 1962. Four-speed automatics were standard fitment, and you won’t find many with the optional four-speed manual gearbox. Add 50% for Cabrio prices.
