Mercedes-Benz 220SE Cabriolet w111 220SE Cabriolet in red with beige leather 1963

General description : There are many models under the Mercedes W111 code, starting with the saloon cars already in 1959. However, the Mercedes Coupe and convertible cars started with 220SE in 1961. Mercedes then later came with a 250SE, later on a 280SE and the final model was the Mercedes 280SE 3.5 with 200hp. From the Mercedes 220SE Cabriolet that we see here today, there were  just over 2700 cars produced (including coupes).

Exterior: It is not easy to make a beautiful convertible that is able to seat four people. Nevertheless, I think the Mercedes 220SE Cabriolet looks amazing driving down the road, even when the roof is in closed position. The black convertible cloth top has been fitted to the car in recent years and looks very good. What also is nice is that it is very quiet in the car while driving for being a convertible. The chrome all around the car is just beautiful, while the paint is chipped in several places. Some smaller dents can be seen, but the shine is still there.

Interior: The W111 Mercedes 220 SE Cabriolet still has the original beige leather interior which is still nice and soft and has most likely had a colouring some time during its life. The wood panels have also been restored at some point and are in excellent condition. Just like all the instruments that work perfectly. The trunk area is in order and the original spare wheel and jack can be found there.

Engine: The 120hp straight six engine used in Mercedes 220 SE Cabriolet feels surprisingly strong. Driving around with the top down, there is rarely need for more power. Power is delivered to the rear through a four speed gearbox that is firm and distinguished. It is a big car, but it handles well due to proper Michelin tyres. Otherwise, the mechanics is up-to-date and there is no strange noises.

History: On the 24th of May in 1963, the first happy owner drove away in this Mercedes 220SE Convertible from the dealership. He or she kept the car until 1986 when the second owner came about. In 1995, it came to a Mercedes dealership in Stockholm and stayed there for 6 years. Until it again in May 2001 came to the present owner who has been caring for this car for the last 21 years. The counter is showing 38,700 and for sure that is turned over at least once. This car will not win you any concours price. But, if you are looking for a super elegant and stylish classic Mercedes Convertible — A car that lets you bring your friends or the entire family when you head for the beach. Something you can leave on the parking lot in town without being nervous. In other words, a sound classic just for fun. — then perhaps, this Mercedes 220SE Cabriolet is for you.

About Mercedes-Benz
In 1886 Karl Benz built Benz Patent Motorwagen widely regarded as the first automobile. Little did he know this was to be the beginning of the world's most renown premium car manufacturer. -Mind you the venture was financed by his wife Bertha Benz.

Not too far Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft founded by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach, started marketing their car in 1901 using now famous name:  Mercedes (Spanish for godsend), which was chosen after their distributor Emil Jellinek's daughter.

To make a long story short, Daimler merged in 1926 with Benz & Cie., becoming Daimler-Benz and adopting Mercedes-Benz as its automobile trademark

Although deemed by some conservative the truth is actually quite the opposite, Daimler-Benz history is filled with 'firsts': Honeycomb radiator, float carburetor,   four wheel brakes 1924, (although Duesenburg Model A was reported to be sporting them as early as 1922), first diesel powered passenger car in 1936, the Mercedes-Benz 260 D,  first direct fuel injection in the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing (well not really as tiny 2-stroke Gutbrod actually had the first direct fuel injection) )  front and rear crumple zones ie. safety cell by Béla Barényi patented in 1951 and introduced in “Ponton”-models , Anti-Lock Brake system (ABS) was first offered on the W116 450SEL 6.9, first production airbags...and the list goes on.

During its 100+ years Mercedes has produced more than a fair share of iconic cars; SSKL , 710 SSK Trossi Roadster, 770K Grosser, 540K Spezial Roadster, 300SL Gullwing, w100 600 Pullman, w111 280SE 3.5 Flachkühler, w113 230SL Pagoda, w109 300 SEL 6.3, w201 2.3-16 Cosworth to name just a few.

One should not forget the famous Silver Arrows (Silberpfeile) either: W 25, W 125, w154, w165, w196 all of which were more than capable of trashing their opponents on the track.
