This is the time of year you’ll invariably be asked “where do you summer?” I’m more interested in “what do you summer in?” This 1967 Mercedes-Benz 250SE Cabriolet appears to be a perfect vehicle in which to holiday. This car was given a respray a few years ago along with an interior retrim, including the extensive amount of wood trim present in these models.

Whether it is an earlier variant or a later version powered by the 3.5 V8, the W111 Cabriolets have skyrocketed in terms of value in the last decade. These were some of the last handbuilt Mercedes-Benzes and present an interesting mix of new technology mixed in with old world craftsmanship. The 250SE was produced between 1965 and 1967, and only 954 Cabriolets were ever produced. It may not be a later V8 variant, but you are certainly in exclusive company with a car like this. The price we see here is about $25,000 higher than the top end of what Hagerty is reporting, but these cars are not exactly depreciating any time soon. We may not be there yet when it comes to this particular car’s price.
