1966 Mercedes 250se 4.5 cabriolet resto mod

This car was bought from the original owner by a Mercedes master mechanic in 2000. He was looking for many years for a solid original 111 cabriolet to do a custom resto-mod. It took over 5 years to complete. It was completely gone through from head to toe and every part on this car was either refurbished or replaced. Everything on the car looks like it was stock by the factory and fits perfectly. No short cuts were taken. The purpose was to have a 111 cabriolet with modern amenities, nd a smooth powerful feel for everyday driving. The car was completed in 2005.

This car started life as an actual real 250se cabriolet. Not a chop top or converted coupe.

Recently the car was gone through, t got serviced, ew tires, ew brakes, ll fluids were changed…etc..

The car runs absolutely perfect and feels like driving a more modern Mercedes with a ton of power, ick up and very smooth like butter.

To do this today it will cost over $100,000 on top of the price of the car and very hard to find someone who will actually take on this project since it requires a lot of labor and professional experience.

Below is a list of what was done:

It has a 1975 450slc EURO MOTORwhich was fully rebuilt at the time of the restoration and has more horse power than the USA version.

Behr ac from a 3.5 cabriolet

Brand new steering wheel

Brand new Euro headlights for a 3.5 cabriolet

Low grill from a 3.5 cabriolet

Heated seats

Recently Brand new Michelin tires were just placed on the car

Retractable seat belts front and back

Power vacuum locks on all doors and trunk

Brand new leather upholstry

Re chrome all chrome parts

New rubber seals

New carpeting

New 3.5 cabriolet tail lights

Cruise control from a 560sec

Custom exhaust system

Complete new paint job

Brand new soft top was just installed a couple of months ago

Suspension work

Etc etc..

It drives smooth like butter…Better than any 3.5 cabriolet. ..It has an Automatic floor shift. The soft top headliner is original and in great shape.

This car has a clean clear California title under my name.
