Completed at the Mercedes-Benz factory in 1962, this 220SE Cabriolet was built to European specifications and equipped with the desirable four speed manual transmission. The exterior color chosen is DB050 White, and the interior was clad in red with contrasting maroon. The car is believed to have been imported into the U.S. in 1984, and was purchased by its current owner in 2016.Under its prior ownership, this beautiful Mercedes has been well cared for without a regard for cost, with no expense being spared during its extensive cosmetic restoration. The car's body was taken down to the bare metal before receiving a show quality paint job in its original color. On the inside the interior was restored in accordance with the build sheet, receiving all new red/maroon leather and carpeting. All of the wood trim and brightwork has been refinished to a very high standard. The original Blaupunkt radio is still present and has been restored to its original working order. To top things off - a new convertible top and headliner have also been fitted. The lesser seen areas such as the trunk and the engine bay have also been detailed to show condition.Mechanically the car is in fantastic condition, showing what is believed to be less than only 109,000 original kilometers. To ensure that the car's performance matched it looks, it has recently had its fuel injection system rebuilt, its brake components rebuilt, and its clutch replaced. It should be noted that before the car left Europe, its original engine was replaced with a slightly later, larger capacity 250SL engine.

Accompanied by copies of the Mercedes-Benz factory records, books, tools, and receipts from the refurbishment, this fine Mercedes-Benz would make an enjoyable and usable addition to any collection.Please contact with any questions - sales@collectorscargarage.com or 914.242.0404
