Description for Mercedes-Benz 220SE 1960

This 1960 Mercedes Benz 220SE Cabriolet is in fair condition. It has been in California for 30+ years. The last 20 years it has been in a carport, covered but not used, moved or started. The present owner bought this car from Katie Perry's(The singer) grandfather. I believe that the car was imported from Europe. The current millage is 59,393. It is a 6 cylinder, 3 on the tree manual shift. Prior to parking it, the owner did work on the engine, top and interior. The good news is that the body is in relatively good shape and appears to have little rust for its age. The bad news is that the car has been sitting for 20 years,has not beenrun during that timeand the owner did not keep the car completely original. The car is located in Montecito. $1000 deposit within 7 days of purchase.

With only 830 Mercedes Benz 220SE Coupe models and 1,112 220SE Cabriolet models ever produced, finding a 1960 Mercedes Benz 220SE Cabriolet can be quite the challenge. While expensive to restore, once you've completed your restoration or have found an already restored model to purchase, the Mercedes Benz 220SE Ponton is actually quite simple to maintain, fun to drive and, of course, a head-turner. Due to extravagant restoration costs, these large and elegant cars should always be purchased in the most complete condition you can find. Always look for signs of rust and rust repair, for complete chrome trim, and for the best quality body you can find. These items are of particular importance because all the metal on these Ponton examples has to be hand fabricated. Similarly, parts that you would think are readily available (such as chrome trim and windshield wipers) are actually quite difficult and expensive to find. Remember, just over 1,000 of these cars were ever made.
