Under the bonnet of this German-engineered car is an inline 6-cylinder engine that is extremely detailed. Connected to the engine is a smooth- shifting 4-speed manual transmission.

The burgundy exterior shows really well, along with the brightwork, whitewall tires, color-keyed wheel covers and the factory road lights. The interior is tailored with tan leather upholstery, beautiful wood trim, Becker Mexico radio, electric clock and modern seat belts for the front passengers.

This stunning Mercedes-Benz 220SE, originally from Washington state, was the beneficiary of a body-off restoration and has been displayed in a museum since 2002.
