Selling a 1964 Mercedes Benz 220SEb Cabriolet
While the 220SEb was first introduced at the 1959 Frankfurt Auto Show in Sedan form, the 220SEb Cabriolet would be debuted to the automotive press at the company’s Stuttgart facilities in February 1961 to celebrate the re-opening of the Daimler-Benz Museum. Many collectors call the Mercedes 220SEb an “anniversary car” for this reason; and it was the company’s 75th year. Designed to attract North American buyers with its sleek fintail design, the Mercedes Benz 220SEb competed with the Jaguar E-Type and Cadillac of the era. While it wasn’t the best performing sports car, the Coupe and Cabriolet models would last over a decade and would go on the be regarded as some of the best looking Mercedes ever built. With only 2,729 Cabriolet units out of the 16,902 220SEb models ever produced, it is easy to understand why the Cabriolet versions are so desirable. Educated buyers, however, will want to authenticate your model. Unfortunately, over the years many Coupes have been cut and converted into Cabriolet models and buyers must always ensure they are purchasing what they’re paying for. After all, these are not the most inexpensive classics!
1964 Mercedes Benz 220SEb Cabriolet Seller’s Guide
When selling a 1964 Mercedes Benz 220SEb Cabriolet, you can guarantee that potential buyers will want to inspect the car for rust; most often this is completed on a lift. You should always be accommodating to serious buyers who want to move forward with an inspection. Not doing so implies that you have something to hide. You’ll also want to be prepared with pictures (most inquiries will come online and often they are not from your city), documents regarding history, maintenance and restoration, and any other information that will help establish a value for your classic.
