After the Mercedes 300 d, the coupé and the cabriolet from the type series W 111 were the first independent designs by the French designer Paul Bracq. In order to realize the timelessly elegant design, he omitted the sedan's so-called marker edges and created a smooth rear end with small rear lights instead. While the sedans had an odometer that called reminiscence of a clinical thermometer, coupé and cabriolet featured two large round instruments under a root wood paneling and a floor shift mechanism. Next to the 220 SE, introduced in 1961, the 300 SE with air suspension and 160 hp was also available, in 1965 the 250 SE followed, as of 1968 the 280 SE and as of 1971 the 3.5 liter eight-cylinder.
This Mercedes Benz 220 SEB Coupé was in use in Germany from 1963 to 1976 and was imported to the USA in 1976. In 2016 the car was shipped to the Czech Republic where a comprehensive inspection was carried out recently. The rear axle bearing, fuel pump, starter, flywheel clutch, leather interior, coil, ignition, oil and filters were renewed. Additionally, the rear-axle differential was restored and has new oil and sealings. The headlamps got new H4 light bulbs.
