1962 MERCEDES-BENZ 220SE CABRIOLET
Finished in gorgeous and highly desirable Havana Brown with a newly crafted Bamboo leather interior, this is an incredible example of one of the finest, most pain-stakingly built Mercedes-Benz models ever made. This Mercedes-Benz was originally purchased by a young doctor in Marin County, California and given to his bride as a wedding present. It remained under their care in California for twenty years until being replaced by a new 450SL. They then sold it to a gentleman in Mill Valley, California, who spent four years performing an over the top restoration. Although the car was in fine condition overall, the car was completely stripped of all paint and undercoating. He then applied new undercoating and twenty coats of Havana Brown in addition to completely going through every mechanical and cosmetic aspect of this incredible automobile. The most recent owner has had this car for the past 28-years and has been just as meticulous as those that came before him, driving it a total of just over 4,000 miles under his ownership, and only on sunny days. Incredibly, this amazing 1962 Mercedes-Benz 220SE Cabriolet has never seen inclement weather in the past 28 years. Its 2,195-cc, 120-hp six-cylinder engine runs seamlessly and the 4-speed manual transmission makes it a joy to drive. The dash is an incredibly beautiful burled Carpathian Elm. It is also fitted with its original Becker Mexico AM/FM radio, Kuhlmeister air conditioning; and power steering, and brakes. Also included is a folder filled with letters and notes from the restorer/ex-owner that includes diagrams on how to oil and grease the car, as well as multiple documents, owners manual and tools. The Mercedes-Benz 220SE Cabriolet features one of the most lavish interior treatments ever produced in a Mercedes-Benz. These were some of the most exquisite hand-assembled automobiles ever produced by Mercedes Benz and the attention given to their construction shines through, giving one a new appreciation for its truly amazing timeless quality. The E stands for Einspritzung, which is German for injection, and means that this car received one of the most technologically advanced engines of its time. Power flows from the aluminum headed, over-head cam, 6-cylinder smoothly and effortlessly. Cruising this car at highway speeds results in a motoring experience as quiet and refined as many contemporary cars.
