Mercedes-Benz replaced the hand-built two-door Pontons at the top end of the range with a new line of luxury models based on the new Finnie floor-pan. Carrying the designation W111, the 220SE range debuted at the 1961 Geneva Salon and featured elegant, transatlantic styling by Paul Bracq, in either pillarless coupe or cabriolet configuration.
Powered by the M127 fuel-injected 2195 cc six-cylinder engine, the 220SE was offered with either a four-speed manual or optional four-speed fluid-coupled automatic transmission and the upmarket specification included front disc brakes as standard, plus the option of power steering.
The 220SE coupes and cabriolets also benefited from more luxuriously appointed interiors, with genuine leather upholstery, the option of a polished walnut dash and seating for five adults. Remaining in production until October 1965, the two-door 220SE models were produced in tiny numbers.

The 220SE will be sold unregistered and comes with owner’s manual and related material.
