1961 Mercedes-Benz 220 Series

In 1959, Mercedes-Benz debuted four new models at the Frankfurt Show including the 220 SEb. All of them shared the same basic unitary-construction bodyshell and all-independent suspension. They were longer than their predecessors, and featured a wrap-around windscreen, wider rear window, wider radiator shell, and vertically positioned twin headlamps. The fuel-injected, single-overhead-camshaft engine of the previous 220 SE was retained for the new 220 SEb, though power of the 2,195cc six was increased by five horsepower to 120 bhp. Zero-to-sixty mph was achieved in under 14 seconds and top speed was now 107 mph.

A coupe body-style appeared in 1960 and a Cabriolet followed in 1961. The 220 SEb Coupe and Cabriolet were well appointed, coming standard with a rev counter, four-speed automatic transmission with floor-mounted gear-change lever, front disc brakes, and leather upholstery. The front disc brakes would not appear on the saloon bodystyle until 1962.

Production came to a close in October of 1965, with fewer than 17,000 examples of the 220 SEb Coupe and Cabriolet models manufactured.
