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.

In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the Quail Lodge in Carmel, California, presented by Bonhams auction. It was sold for the sum of $64,350 inclusive of buyer's premium.
