1966 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series 250SE W111 Coupe

Offered for sale is a beautiful, echanically strong, ntirely solid 1966 Mercedes 250SE Coupe finished in two-tone Blue Metallic and Silver Grey Metallic over a complimentary dark blue interior. A European version that was imported to California in the early 1970s, his 250SE is a clean and presentable example that can either be enjoyed as-is or viewed as an incredibly solid and original platform that can be taken to the next level.

The gorgeous two-tone Blue Metallic and Silver Grey Metallic finish has its share of minor imperfections, owever none of them are significant enough to really appear in any of the pictures. The body is entirely straight with consistent and correct panel fits and gaps throughout and no evidence of any accidents or bodywork. All of the glass and chrome remains in good original condition and the wheels are wrapped in tires with plenty of remaining tread. Always well cared for and properly garaged, he car’s undercarriage in entirely solid with no harmful rust or corrosion to speak of. The car’s interior is equally as clean, he seats, arpets and interior panels all in great shape and showing only limited wear. The wood interior trim could stand refinishing, he car retains its original Becker radio and the car’s headliner is in good original condition.

The car is also mechanically sound, he original engine firing up easily, dling consistently and pulling strongly through each of the automatic transmissions’ gears. Compression is good across all cylinders, he brakes function as they should and the car is joy to drive, hether tooling through town or bombing down the highway. This is the first era of Mercedes’ classic cars that are adequately powered and advanced enough that they can be comfortably and reliably driven in modern highway conditions, nd we wouldn’t hesitate to drive this car anywhere.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a solid, eautiful and mechanically strong appreciating classic. Heckflosse (fin tail) W111 coupes are one of the most timelessly elegant cars that Mercedes ever produced, nd in our opinion they’re also one of the most undervalued investment grade cars on the market today, s their convertible and eight cylinder kin continue to break sale records at nearly every collector car auction in the annual circuit. It’s only a matter of time before the market catches up to the six cylinder W111s, aking them excellent investments that are modern enough mechanically to truly drive and enjoy.
