There is an ideal classic sedan you have in mind. It has
intricately styled graceful lines... there's a color combo that
signals timeless elegance... the interior is a leather-lined luxury
experience that offers A/C... and there are even modern touches
like fuel injection. This 1966 Mercedes-Benz 250SE is that kind of
The SE designation lets you know this is the premium sophisticate
as part of the flagship Mercedes sedan lineup, and this plays the
role perfectly. The shape embodies the golden years of the late-60s
elegance as it echoes the lines of the mighty 600 series
limousines. The black paint has a nice luster to show off the
authoritative curves of the hood, and at the same time, the finish
is not "new money" flashy. Mercedes was known at this time for
delivering graceful lines. You see it in how the chrome bumpers are
doubled around the corners to add extra emphasis to places like the
iconic grille. Or how the taillights fit under the trim so that it
can seamlessly encircle the rear. And of course, Mercedes famously
over-built these cars from the beginning. So over half a century
later, the doors still close with the sound and feel of German
The tan interior goes with the black exterior for one of the most
desirable color themes around. The front seats are supportive
buckets similar to those found in the sporting SL, and they're
armchair comfortable. It's because this one was engineered to
travel all day in speed and comfort across the autobahn. And as a
flagship sedan, this one has plenty of room to carry family and
friends. There have also been investments later in life in places
like the leather upholstery and the optional air conditioner to
make sure this classic is impressively comfortable for even your
most fickle riders. And those who know Mercedes-Benzes will really
be impressed with the details, like the weave of the carpeting, the
real wood on the dash, and the working Becker Europa radio.
Lift the hood and see the 2.5-liter straight-six motor. These are
hardy powerplants, and when combined with fuel injection, you get
one of the best vintage car experiences around. The overhead cam
setup makes for great low-end power and this one smoothly and
swiftly brings you up to speed. The transmission is a
smooth-shifting four-speed automatic, and the suspension is fully
independent. You even have modern cruising tires backed by power
brakes with front discs. So this means you have a classic that can
still uphold its reputation as a desirable driver's car.
This is true vintage luxury and elegance. So when upper-class
distinction is offered for an obtainable price, you need to hurry
on this deal. Call today!!!
