1965 was the last year of production for the Mercedes Benz 220SE 111. Available as a sedan, coupe, or cabriolet, the Mercedes 220SE 111 had become one of Daimler-Benz’s most notable American export cars. While many say this popularity was due to its “Americanized” fintail styling and overall design appeal, many classic car enthusiasts believe that Mercedes’ focus on safety played a big role in the desirability of this car. First introduced in 1959 and dubbed the W111 internally, mechanically the 220SE 111 offered front disk brakes, the rear suspension that had been offered on the 300SL convertible, and a low-pivot swing-axle. Quite large compared to other European sedans, the 1965 Mercedes 220SE 111 stretched 191.9-inches on a 108.3-inch wheelbase. The Mercedes 220SE also featured crumple zones, a safety innovation that had been introduced several years early by Mercedes.


1965 Mercedes Benz 220SE 111 Seller’s Tips

While the factory never recognized the “Fintail” nickname given to the 1965 Mercedes Benz 220SE 111 (and other year models), there were several design elements that were said to have been adapted specifically to draw American buyers. Among them were the slightly wrapped front windshields and the modest fintail sides.
