A large car with a commanding presence, the Mercedes Benz 220SEb Coupe was not only beautiful, but also a technological marvel in its time. Designed with safety and passenger comfort in mind, the 1963 Mercedes Benz 220SEb Coupe (and other model years) would find itself at the front of automotive design. Most notably, the 220SEb offered front and rear crumple zones that would absorb energy from impact. It was also outfitted with retractable seatbelts, something that Mercedes would patent. While the Sedan version was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1959, the Coupe models were not available until 1961. Considered the top of the range, the 220SEb would feature Bosch mechanical fuel injection, producing 120hp at 4800rpm and giving a top speed of 107mph. In total, approximately 14,173 of the Coupe models would be manufactured, making them quite attainable in today’s classic car market in a wide variety of conditions. Whether you’re looking for a pristine condition 220SEb Coupe for your showroom or a fair condition example for your next restoration project, The Beverly Hills Car Club can assist you.
While many collectors prefer the later models with the bigger engines such as the 300SE, the 1963 Mercedes Benz 220SEb Coupe is an elegant and powerful classic that can be driven and maintained with no fuss. One of the benefits to purchasing a 220SEb Coupe rather than a Convertible is that the Convertibles are usually in rougher condition due to the sun and water damage to the top and leather interior. Both models, however, featured engines that were based on the Sedans, therefore mechanical parts are in no shortage. If you’re thinking about buying a 1963 220SEb Coupe, always perform a thorough inspection of the car’s body and mechanics. Because rust plagued these models, you’ll also want to pay close attention to the extent of any rust damage, which can be hard to repair and control. Of course, the condition of the model you choose will be directly correlated to the value. To learn more Buyer’s Tips, The Beverly Hills Car Club encourages you to contact them today!
