Beautiful 1960 Mercedes-Benz 220SE 'Ponton' Cabriolet
This gorgeous 1960 Mercedes Benz 220SE is a California car wearing a quality older restoration. Red with tan leather interior and black soft-top. Shift on the column manual transmission. This 'Ponton' runs and drives superb and is ready to be enjoyed by its next loving owner. A very clean, straight, and solid example with no rust. An attractive and strong driver with lots of charm. It was originally born as a highly sought after black car. It currently wears nice red paint, chromework, and interior. The wood has been redone in more of a matte / non-gloss finish. In 1958 the 220 range was updated with a fuel-injected version of the 2.2-litre overhead-camshaft six, becoming the 220SE. Maximum power increased to 115bhp, and there was a useful improvement in acceleration, the 0-60mph time reducing by two seconds. By the time production ceased in November 1960, fewer than 2,000 220SE Coupé and Cabriolet models had been manufactured, and today these stylish and luxuriously equipped Grand Tourers are highly prized. One of the company’s most elegant creations, the 220 SE Cabriolet is a fantastic display of refinement, build quality, and effortless performance. Even today, the 220 SE remains a joy to drive, making this timeless and well-maintained example a must have.
