The successor to the Mercedes Benz 220SEb, the 250SE would launch in September 1965 and would see a short production run before it would be replaced by the 280SE in 1967. The 1966 Mercedes Benz 250SE Cabriolet gave buyers 150 horsepower via a powerful 2.5L engine and significant improvements in top speed. Very similar in body style to the 220SEb, few changes were made to the exterior of the car aside from new 14-inch rims and new hubcaps designed to accommodate the larger disk brakes and new rear axle. Inside the 250SE, it would be difficult to find any changes to the stylish and elegant wood and leather interior. In total, only 954 of the 6,213 units of the 250SE would be Cabriolet models, making them exceptionally rare. In fact, the 250SE Cabriolet would see the smallest production of any of the 220SEb, 250SE or 280SE automobiles. If youre thinking about buying a 1966 Mercedes Benz 250SE Cabriolet, youve found the best website for information on these classics and the Buyer's Tips you need to find the best example for your garage.
When searching for a 1966 Mercedes Benz 250SE Cabriolet whether as a restoration project or a complete and pristine example always be sure to hire a third-party inspection company that specializes in classic European autos to give you their honest and unbiased opinion about any potential purchase. Rust is one of the biggest issues to plague these beautiful classics and can cause havoc if found unexpectedly during a restoration. Condition is directly correlated to value with these cars, so be sure to check bumpers, front cross members, headlight buckets, the edges of wheel wells, and the rocker panels (among other places) to ensure you're purchasing a rust-free example. If there is rust, and you're ok with that, always make sure you are compensated accordingly in the price, as restoration can be quite expensive. These are just a few of the Buyer's Tips that The Beverly Hills Car Club recommends for the 250SE. Furthermore the Cabriolet models are usually in rougher condition due to their exposure to the elements. Be sure to check the soft tops condition, as well as the tops mechanics.
