Nearly Perfect 1966 220SE

Every so often you find a classic car who's age, colors, condition, and overall personality draw you in.  While looking for this week's 'Mercedes for sale', we stumbled across this very nice 220SE listed here on Classiccars.com. Go have a look!  For some reason, these old Mercedes wear this particular shade of  beige really well. When combined with darker leather, wood, and canvas, these cars become a real classy example of luxury motoring.  Based on the write-up, the seller is in love with the colors too.

 

This car offers a fuel injected 6-cylinder fitted to a four-speed auto. To make driving a pleasure on those hot summer days, you can put up the top and turn on some vintage air-conditioning. Power steering and power brakes undoubtedly make this car easier to handle than others of the same age. (Remember, in 1966 power anything was an option you had to pay for.) In true Mercedes-Benz fashion, this car came with a comprehensive set of manuals and tools. Thankfully, this car still has both. It's great to see cars like this still around. They aren't the performance or muscle cars that the 60's were famous for, but they are a major part of our history nonetheless.

If you're looking for a luxury motorcar with an abundance of available parts and support, this car could be yours. Will it end up in your garage? To see more Mercedes for sale, check out our mobile apps for your iPhoneiPadAndroid or Blackberry device.
