Fewer than 17,000 220 SEb Coupe and Cabriolet models were produced between the car’s manufacturing years of 1960 to 1965 which makes these beautiful and luxuriously equipped classic grand tourers a highly prized vehicle these days. This particular example is in wonderful condition both mechanically and aesthetically and it spent a lot of its former life as a museum piece at the famous Kemp Auto Museum in St Louis before starting a new life here in the UK.
Finished in brilliant white paint with a contrasting luxurious red leather interior, this car really needs to be seen to be appreciated. The 220 SEb features many unique features over the standard 220 SE including a wider radiator shell, wrap-around windscreen and vertically positioned twin headlamps to name a few. The car is powered by a 2.2 litre 6-cylinder petrol engine that produced 120bhp and was mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox.
This car has benefitted from a thorough restoration at some point, however, along with the service history, this information was lost during the sale and relocation of the Kemp Auto Museum so there is no way to prove when this work was carried out or the indicated 28,000 miles covered by the vehicle. This vehicle has been maintained and serviced regardless and is currently presented in excellent condition and it starts, runs, drives and stops as it should.
This wonderful piece of automotive history is being advertised on behalf of a customer and is located in Liverpool. Viewings are available by appointment only, so if you would like any more information please do get in touch on +44 (0) 7388 328 229.
