Sold for $88,000 at 2014 Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction.
In 1959, at the Frankfurt Show, Mercedes-Benz introduced four new models, all of which shared the same basic unitary-construction bodyshell and all-round independent suspension. They were longer than their predecessor that featured a wider radiator shell, wrap-around windscreen, wider rear window, vertically positioned twin headlamps and discrete tail fins. The tail fins earned it the nickname, 'Fintail.'

Powering the 220SE was a single-overhead camshaft six-cylinder engine, boasting fuel injection and increased compression ratio of 8.7:1, raising maximum output to 120 bhp. Zero-to-sixty mph was reached in just under 13 seconds with top speed near 110 mph. The 220SE was distinguished from its less expensive siblings through the use of additional chrome and twin rear bumpers. They had a Hydrak automatic clutch which proved to be a less popular option so a proper four-speed automatic transmission was made available from 1961. The interior was luxurious and well finished, with form following function.

This 220SE was completed at the Mercedes-Benz factory in 1964 and was built to European specifications and equipped with the four-speed manual transmission. The exterior color is DBG334 Light Blue, and the interior is Cognac over tan carpets. The original owner was a resident of Zurich, Switzerland who is believed to have kept the blue Mercedes for about a decade, using it sparingly and only during fair weather conditions. In March of 1974, the 220SE was purchased by its second owner, a Mr. Silverstone of Palos Verdes, California. Silverstone imported the car to California that same year, and would retain the striking Cabriolet in his collection for nearly 40 years.

In the early 2000s, the car was treated to a cosmetic restoration, during which time the car's exterior was finished in the original light blue color, the chrome and trim refinished, and the interior redone in the correct Cognac. It has color coded hubcaps and a dark blue convertible top. There is a Becker Europa radio, tools, and Mercedes-Benz factory records and books.
