Replacing the Mercedes Benz six-cylinder 230SE lineup, the 1967 Mercedes Benz 250SE Cabriolet and Coupe models offered a more subdued design, leatherette interior, durable construction, and stronger performance than their predecessors. Dubbed the companys more sensible sedan during the time, the fintail design that had been popular on the 230SE quietly went away and was replaced with a longer and lower body. A much needed performance upgrade came in the form of a new 2.5L engine, which offered 128 horsepower. Further upgrades to power would come to the range in 1968 when the 2.8L version would launch to the public with more than 180 horsepower. All models would have four-wheel disc brakes and Bosch mechanical fuel injection.
In total, only 954 Mercedes Benz 250SE Cabriolet models were manufactured between 1965 and 1967, making them among the rarest of the 230, 250 and 280 series. In fact, only 6,213 units whether Cabriolet or Coupe were made during this production span. If you're considering buying a 1967 Mercedes Benz 250SE Cabriolet, you'll want to ensure you find the most complete example you can, as restoration of these rare models can be quite costly. Rust will be your biggest competitor, and Cabriolet models are generally in rougher shape than their Coupe counterparts thanks to their exposure to the sun and elements. Be sure to check for rust throughout the key areas, such as the rear lower trunk, floor boards, front and rear cross members, inner fenders, bumpers, and headlight wells among others. Overall, the 250SE is a great collector car, particularly for those who are looking for a classic they can enjoy daily or on the weekends.
