Mercedes-Benz 300 SE Cabriolet 1965 - World Of Classic Cars -

Mercedes-Benz 300 SE Cabriolet 1965

Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1962, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SE Cabriolet was a technically advanced grand tourer wrapped in a modern design penned by the legendary Paul Bracq. The pinnacle of the S-class series, it found favour among well-heeled buyers, particularly in the United States.
Based on the ground-breaking W112 series, the 300 SE began the tradition of innovation that remains a central part of the Mercedes-Benz marque. It featured power steering, pneumatic suspension, and a dual-circuit brake system with disc brakes giving excellent ride, performance, and handling matched with class-leading build quality.

This desirable matching-numbers 300 SE Cabriolet was first registered in Paris on 31 May 1965, where it spent most of its cosseted life in the hands of one fastidious lady owner for many years. It was maintained regardless of cost by Mercedes-Benz dealers or marque specialists. It has been the subject of a correct restoration, including a recent refurbishment with detailed inspection report. This rare manual version retains many of its original features including the sumptuous blue leather interior, which is in excellent condition. Also retained is the original Becker Europa radio set into an unmarked burr walnut dashboard.
This fabulous example of a Bracq-era Mercedes-Benz is fast appreciating in value. Ideal for long-distance touring and even as a daily driver.
