Mercedes Benz Coupe and Cabriolet 220SEb models were added to the Fintail lineup in 1961 alongside the Sedan to increase market coverage in the North American market. Known for its rear fintail-like lines and curvature, which was compared to the exaggeratedly finned American cars being produced at the time, the Mercedes Benz 220SEb became widely popular in a very short time. From 1961 to 1965, an incredible 16,902 units would come off the production floor, only 2,729 of which were Cabriolet units. The 220SEb Cabriolet’s popularity was two-fold. Of course the exterior styling and design attracted many, but the underpinnings and technological advancements of the time were also a big draw. The 220SEb Cabriolet featured front and rear crumple zones that protected passengers from being harmed by accident debris coming inside the cabin. Mercedes also patented retractable seatbelts and added those to the 220SEb, as well as an advanced air-suspension system for a softer and more comfortable ride. Highly desired today, the Cabriolet models are perhaps some of the most popular.
