The 220 SEb was the most luxurious offering available from Mercedes at the time. Featuring Paul Bracq’s sublime styling and a build quality second to none. Options were few and limited to an automatic transmission, power steering and individual rear seats.
This particular car is blessed with all of them! Additionally, it is an original DB40 Black car, further adding to its desireability. With just two Los Angeles owners from new, it has enjoyed a very pampered life and is consequently, very straight and rust-free. Impeccably maintained by the same mechanic since 1973, it runs & drives superbly.
