With only 2,729 Mercedes 220SEb Cabriolet models ever built, it is easy to understand why you may be hesitant to sell your 1965 Mercedes Benz 220SEb Cabriolet. Rest assured, you’ve found one of the industry’s leading resources for model information and Seller’s Tips to help make the process as smooth and successful as possible. Manufactured from 1961 to 1965, the Mercedes 220SEb Cabriolet offered a modern body design that blended both style and grace. Comparable to the Cadillac and Jaguar E-Types of the day, the car featured fintail-like adornments that were said to be the German automakers answer to the exaggeratedly finned American cars. However beautiful the car was, the safety advancements that were offered during this time would put Mercedes at the forefront of the industry. Boasting front and rear crumple zones to protect passengers in the event of an accident and using Mercedes-patented retractable seatbelts, the 220SEb was as safe as it was beautiful.


1965 Mercedes Benz 220SEb Cabriolet Seller’s Guide

Today, many collectors and enthusiasts consider the 1965 Mercedes Benz 220SEb Cabriolet to be the epitome of the lineup, next to the later models equipped with the powerful 3.5L engine. Educated buyers will always want to know the condition of your Cabriolet’s convertible top and to what extent any weather damage – either sun, rain or snow – had has to the overall condition of the car. The answers to these questions will help determine the current market value of your classic. Furthermore, buyers will want to inspect the car thoroughly for rust; most often the best way to do this is by placing the car on a lift. You should always allow buyers to do this, as it gives them the best sense of what they’re purchasing. Some of the most rust-prone areas include the bumper mounts, trunk floorboards, under the seats, around the pedals and at the doorsills. You can check these areas in advance to ensure you are aware of any rust that may become an issue. These are just some of the Seller’s Tips that the Alex Manos team has for owners of the 1965 Mercedes 220SEb Cabriolet.
