At the 1959 Frankfurt Show, Mercedes-Benz introduced four new models, including the 220SE. All four models shared the same basic unitary-construction bodystyle and were fitted with an independent suspension at all four corners. These new cars were longer than their predecessors and featured a wider radiator shell, wrap-around windscreen, wider rear window and vertically positioned twin headlamps. Powering the new cars began as a 2915cc SOHC six-cylinder powerplant which later grew to 3499cc V8 and offering 200 horsepower in the 1969-71 280SE 3.5.
In 1960, the 220b became the replacement for the 219 sedan, the 220SB sedan replaced the 220S, and a 220SEb series became the replacement for the 200SE.
This Mercedes-Benz 220SE Convertible is finished in brown with a tan interior. It has air conditioning, power windows, and a more modern, aftermarket Panasonic radio with cassette player.
