The Mercedes 220SE Coupe, often known as the Ponton due to its shape resembling a pontoon, would be the first new release from the German manufacturer after World War II. Propelled onto the scene with great anticipation in 1958, the 1959 Mercedes Benz 220SE Coupe and Cabriolet models featured a 2.2L straight-six overhead camshaft engine with Bosch mechanical fuel injection. It also featured a unitized body/frame construction and fully independent suspension, making it quite the beast. Running until November 1960 when it would officially be replaced by the 220SEb, only 830 models of the 220SE Coupe would be manufactured. If you’re thinking about selling a 1959 Mercedes Benz 220SE Coupe, you can rest assured knowing that there are buyers waiting for a car like yours to be offered on the market – no matter what its condition.

Mechanically, the 220SE Coupe and Cabriolet are nearly identical to their Sedan counterparts, making mechanical parts relatively easy to find. Due to their age, there are several standard mechanical issues that buyers may ask you about. Have you replaced the water pump? What is the age of the car’s engine mounts? The exhaust systems tend to hang low. What is the overall condition of your exhaust? Knowing that rust is a particular problem for these models, have you performed any rust repair?
