Lot details

Registration No: DTV 301B
Chassis No: 11102122066904
MOT: August 2023

  • Very rare 220 SEB Coupe subject to comprehensive restoration between 2009 and 2011, and refinished in its original Maroon with Ivory leather interior
  • In current ownership for the last 9 years
  • Subject to finishing works in August 2022 in preparation for sale

Based on the flagship S-class W111 'fintail' Saloon, with its signature upright headlights and imposing traditional Mercedes-Benz grille, the Coupe comprised a light and airy pillarless glasshouse over a distinctive two-door body. The 220 Coupe was very well appointed inside, featuring Mercedes textured leather and wood trimmings. The model's 2195cc, SOHC engine employed mechanical fuel injection of the same type as the 'Pagoda' SLs - its 120bhp being sufficient to propel the car at up to 106mph.

Presented in a very attractive combination of Maroon with contrasting Ivory leather interior, ‘DTV 301B’ was subject to a comprehensive restoration between 2009-2011, which included an overhaul of the body, engine and running gear before being resprayed in its original colour. Fitted with a period Blaupunkt radio with iPod connectivity, an electric aerial, front and rear seatbelts and tastefully uprated 14”steel wheels, with chrome and body colour hubcaps, this presents a wonderful opportunity for a driveable and comfortable classic with exquisite style.

In current ownership since November 2013, this 220 SEB has been dry stored throughout and serviced appropriately. In December of 2018, the car was subject to a full-service including spark plugs, the suspension greased, a new battery fitted, replacement brake pipes and some minor chassis repairs at a cost of £1,977. In August of 2022, the car was subject to works preparing it for sale, totalling over £400 and an MOT was applied, with it being valid until 17th August 2023. Included with the vehicle is a collection of previous MOTs dating back as far as 1994, a collection of invoices for previous works completed, written details of the restoration work with some supporting images from Bucklow Garage Ltd and the V5C document which displays 5 former keepers.
