The year 1961 was a truly historic one for Daimler-Benz AG. In addition to marking the 35th Anniversary of the merger of Daimler and Benz, the company also observed the 75th Anniversary of the creation of Karl Benz's historic Patent Motorwagen. Rightly heralded as the “Jubilee Year Mercedes,” the all-new 220 SEb marked a quantum forward leap from the 220 SE it replaced, with modernistic yet elegant styling that would profoundly influence Mercedes-Benz design language throughout the rest of the 1960s. A handsome, high-prestige version of the 220 SE sedan, the two-door, four-seat 220 SEb Coupe was soon joined by the even more-glamourous Cabriolet.

11102310048554 presents as the ideal drivers 220, equipped with a four-speed manual transmission and a striking livery, while open-air touring awaits at a moment's notice. Incredibly versatile for a grand touring or parades of elegance, additional desirable features include a proper Becker 'Mexico' AM/FM radio, Kühlmeister air-conditioning unit and electric clock.
While the paintwork and chrome were freshened several years ago, they've matured very well and compliment the gorgeous leather upholstery, wool weave carpeting and lacquered woodwork. Both engine and luggage compartments appear tidy and correct over all, while the rear contains an original mat, 7/62 date stamped spare tire assembly and jack. A beautifully solid and dry undercarriage completes this fantastic car – all pans and frame rails appear original.

48554 benefits from a late 2017 and recent 2018 mechanical inspection and major services. These included new hydraulic clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder, and associated hoses, while the most recent work was performed by Mercedes-Benz specialist Gus Kidonakis of Beverly Hill Motors. Services thoroughly addressed the ignition and mechanical fuel injection systems, a top end adjustment and rebuild, new stainless-steel exhaust system, cooling system and auxiliary hoses throughout. Drivability is strong and an absolute thrill, thanks to the 4-speed manual transmission, suitable power and ample room for all. We would like to note the presence of white exhaust smoke at cold starts, which dissipates at operating temperature. Future attention/service may be required to the engine's bottom end.

Visually stunning and ready to enjoy, this 1963 Mercedes-Benz 220 SEb is a truly important and highly influential classic Mercedes-Benz model set for open-air enjoyment. Now available for worldwide purchase and delivery from our Houston, Texas showroom.
