1965 MERCEDES-BENZ 220SE COUPE Chassis No. 111 021 10 071 483 Blue with tan leather interior Engine: six cylinder single overhead cam, 2,195cc, 134bhp at 5,000rpm; Gearbox: four speed manual; Suspension: front independent, rear, single joint swing axle, coil springs; Brakes: four wheel disc. Left hand drive. In the late 1950's Mercedes Benz found itself with a fine lineup of modern, powerful engines, but a somewhat dated range of body styles. This shortcoming was answered by the introduction of the new 220 series at the 1959 Frankfurt Show. The second generation 220 had completely new and elegant bodywork, longer, wider and lower than before. Flanking the traditional Mercedes grille were distinctive vertically stacked headlights contoured into wings that swept back to an angular tail. Combined with this attractive styling, the 220SE coupe offered the first production four seater to have the benefits of a fuel injected engine, producing 130bhp along with revised suspension and disc brakes. This car appears to be in average condition and will require attention. There are traces of corrosion on the body. WITHOUT RESERVE.
