Mercedes Benz 300SE RHD Convertible
The Mercedes-Benz W111 was the chassis code given to a range of vehicles produced between 1959 and 1971. These included four door saloons, two door coupes and cabriolets. The Paul Bracq designed bodywork included distinctive tailfins giving the models their nickname Heckflosse, German for fintail. The coupe’s and cabriolets utilised most of the saloons chassis and drivetrain but featured a more square and subtle rear body styling. The cabriolet boasted seating for five occupants with the hood folding behind the rear seats and covered with a hood bag to match the seat colour.
In 1962 Mercedes-Benz released a more powerful M189-2996cc engine into its range which was badged as the 300SE. Boasting 14” wheels, pneumatic suspension, power steering and automatic transmission as standard.
The Mercedes Benz 300SE offered here at Autostorico was first registered in May 1964. Finished in Silver metallic with Coffee leather interior trim.
