With only 830 Mercedes Benz 220SE Coupe models and 1,112 220SE Cabriolet models ever produced, finding a 1960 Mercedes Benz 220SE Cabriolet can be quite the challenge. While expensive to restore, once you've completed your restoration or have found an already restored model to purchase, the Mercedes Benz 220SE Ponton is actually quite simple to maintain, fun to drive and, of course, a head-turner. Due to extravagant restoration costs, these large and elegant cars should always be purchased in the most complete condition you can find. Always look for signs of rust and rust repair, for complete chrome trim, and for the best quality body you can find. These items are of particular importance because all the metal on these Ponton examples has to be hand fabricated. Similarly, parts that you would think are readily available (such as chrome trim and windshield wipers) are actually quite difficult and expensive to find. Remember, just over 1,000 of these cars were ever made.
Due to the cost of restoration and rarity of these models, a 1960 Mercedes Benz 220SE Cabriolet model can easily fetch a six-figure price tag if in excellent condition. Whether you're looking for a completed restoration that you can enjoy immediately or an excellent candidate for your own restoration, The Beverly Hills Car Club can assist you in finding the model you desire. Furthermore, they can offer you valuable Buyer's Tips to ensure youre purchasing the best Mercedes 220SE that your budget can afford. For example, with the 220SE Cabriolet models, particularly with the later 220SEb Cabriolet models that would follow in 1961, it is imperative to ensure you are purchasing an original Cabriolet and not a Sedan that was haphazardly cut-down to capitalize on buyers looking for convertible models. While sad, many unsuspecting buyers have been taken advantage of in this way; a mistake that is quite costly. A quick check of the chassis and engine numbers can prevent this from happening.
