The 220 SEb Convertible and CoupĂ© were luxurious derivatives of the 220 SEb saloon that had debuted at the Frankfurt Show in 1959. This new 220 family moved Mercedes-Benz’s styling into the modern era; longer than their predecessors, these elegant newcomers featured a wider radiator shell, wrap-around windscreen, enlarged rear window and vertically positioned twin headlamps. Two-door CoupĂ© and Convertible models appeared in 1960 and 1961 respectively, minus the saloon’s already dated-looking tail fins. This car had just one owner until 2006, and benefitted from a full restoration in 2000, works which have stood the test of time to a very high level.
