Selling A Mercedes 220SE 111 Chassis
After its initial production from 1958 to 1960, the Mercedes 220SE model lived on a few more years on the 111 Chassis. The 1961 Mercedes 220SE 111 Chassis was the last of the hand-built Mercedes, its release date carefully chosen to be at the celebration of the company’s 75th Anniversary and the opening of the Daimler-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. Often referred to as the “fin-body,” first sketches of this popular body style showed up as early as 1957. Unlike the 300S and the Ponton Coupes and Cabriolets, these cars shared the chassis and wheelbase with the W111 sedan and allowed Benz to get away from the production of expensive, small-volume cars.
Mercedes 220SE Cabriolet Seller’s Tips
The Mercedes W111 Chassis models are highly desired, however like all open cars, the Mercedes 220SE Cabriolet had its own special appeal. Like the Ponton A Cabriolet models, the Mercedes 220SE 111 Chassis Cabriolet carried their tops in a recess just behind the rear seat, so only a small about of fabric and folding mechanism protruded above the bodywork – a major improvement compared with previous Cabriolet models. Less than 3k of these 220SE 111 Chassis models were built from 1961 to 1965. If you’re looking to sell Mercedes 220SE Cabriolet automobiles, the team at Alex Manos wants to speak with you!
Mercedes 220SE Coupe Seller’s Tips
