The Mercedes Benz 250SE series replaced the 220 and 230 six-cylinder models and served as the company’s more sensible sedan. Featuring a subdued design, leatherette interior, durable construction and relatively good performance, the 1967 Mercedes Benz 250SE Coupe (as well as other model years in the series) would be an instant success. The rear fin went away in 1965 and was replaced with a longer and lower body. A new 2.5L engine offering 128hp would appear in the 250SE Coupe and Convertible models and would later be replaced in 1968 by the 2.8L version, which offered 180hp. All would have Bosch mechanical fuel injection and four-wheel disc brakes. Today, classic car collectors and Mercedes enthusiasts turn to the 250SE Coupe as a fantastic everyday driver, restoration project and showroom piece. No matter what you desire, The Beverly Hills Car Club can help you find the model to suit your needs and exceed your expectations. They can also provide you with the Buyer’s Tips needed to make a knowledgeable decision.
In total, only 5,259 Mercedes 250SE Coupes were built, making them highly sought-after in the classic car market. Similarly, the Cabriolet models, of which only 954 units were produced, are also highly desired. When inquiring about potential 250SE models to purchase, one of the biggest questions should be originality. Always ask the seller for any documentation on ownership history, maintenance and restoration, and always try to get a copy of the engine and chassis numbers. On these cars, the chassis number should be stamped on the right front side member, on the engine plate and on the type plate. The 1967 Mercedes Benz 250SE Coupe chassis prefix is 111 021, while the engine prefix is 120 980/981. Mechanically, you should watch for oil leakages, although all older Mercedes have some small oil leakages, wear in the valve guides and valve stem seals, transmission weakness, worn tie rods, and ageing brake and water hoses. A thorough inspection for rust should also be performed, including placing the car up on a lift to inspect the underbelly.
