Lot 357: 1966 Mercedes-Benz 220 SEB

Auto Moto D'Epoca, Coys (19 November 2005)

Introduced in mid-1959, the Mercedes-Benz Wlll 220 series was a natural progression from the 220S range of 1956; the latter had been the first saloon series from Mercedes to use a unitary construction bodyshell and this was carried on with its successor. All models were larger inside and out with a greater abundance of chromework and distinctive finned rear wings emphasising the size of the cars. Four basic models were available, the 105bhp 220, the 124bhp 220S with twin Solex carburettors, the 134bhp 220SE with fuel injection and the 170bhp 300SE with 2,996cc engine: these last three cars were also distinguishable by chrome bars fixed above the front and rear bumpers, and combined headlight, sidelight and indicator units behind glass cowls.Still bearing its original Rome registration number, this fine example is finished in the colour of mid grey with a blue interior. It was restored in 1998 and has had just 2 owners from new. It is described by its owner as being in good overall condition. It wears 4 nearly new tyres and has an original period radio.Questo splendido esemplare di Mercedes 220 SEB, con targhe originali in metallo, si presenta verniciato nella livrea grigio medio con interni blu. Ha avuto solo due proprietari da nuova ed stata restaurata nel 1998. Il suo attuale proprietario la descrive come un' autovettura in ottime condizioni generali, con quattro nuove gomme e autoradio dell'epoca.
