For Sale: 1966 Mercedes-Benz 250SE in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

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 ideal classic.

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 precision.

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!!!
