Earlier this week on Monday I looked at 1993 600SL in Spruce Green only to follow it up with a 2004 CL600 in Everest Green. To close out the week, I’d thought I’d finish up with another green machine, although this one is quite a bid older than the prior examples. This 1967 250SE Coupe for sale Missouri is a wonderful example of the design and craftsmanship that Mercedes-Benz was all about during this era. Lots of chrome, lots of leather and lots of wood. These coupes were the perfect blend of conservative style that’s still noticeable without being totally outrageous and in your face (I’m looking at you Cadillac Coupe DeVille) So let’s go check out the details of the W111.

Many have tried, but few manufacturers have succeeded in surpassing the Mercedes-Benz S-class as the bar by which all large luxury sedans are set. This isn’t anything new, as Mercedes has had a long, storied history of luxury sedans dating back to the early reaches of the 20th century. The S-class came into its own in the 1950s and 1960s, when the W111 appeared, which would be sold in coupe and cabriolet form alongside the W108 and W109 sedans. These S-classes would carry on into the early 1970s and would feature a variety of engine and body options, from short to long wheelbase with everything from a 2.5 liter inline-6 under the hood to the 6.3 liter V8 from the 600 Grösser. This 250SE for sale in The Netherlands has the fuel-injected 2.5 liter inline-6 under the hood mated to a four-speed manual gearbox.
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.
Most of us dream about those barn finds from time to time. That one car that you always wanted that you would give anything to stumble upon in unmolested condition, even if the car had a heavy patina. Or maybe it’s a car that you’ve spotted and expressed interest in, hoping that someday the owner would put it on offer. The latter is the case with this two owner 250SE, as the second owner purchased it from the original owner, whose son refurbished it as a 40th anniversary present for his parents. This car has covered less than 100,000 miles in 47 years and it shows.
Engine: 2.5 liter inline-6

While many consider the 300SL as the car that signaled to the world that Mercedes-Benz had returned from the brink in the aftermath of war, it was the W111 coupes and sedans that brought them success throughout the 1960s and carried them on to a prosperous future. After massive devastation to their factories during World War II, it was almost unthinkable that this company could rebound. However, a scant 14 years after the war had ended, the W111, with its advanced front and rear crumple zones, retractable seat belts and, on the top models, fuel injection, debuted. While the first sedans worse rather trendy tail fins, the coupe had more modest rear flanks and the stately, pillarless roof that we’ve come to love from Mercedes-Benz two doors. This 250SE for sale in Florida has undergone a recent renovation and is in need of a few minor touches to draw this classy coupe to completion.

Questions you may have:
a) Why all this money?… I intended to keep the car and do it right. Still a possibility.
b) Why are you selling?.. My new business is taking me overseas every other month. No time.
c) Is there anything else to do with the car?.. Very minor, mostly details. Part of the hobby. Among them, I would rechrome a couple of pieces of the back bumper. Not an expensive job.
d) Does it run and shift OK?.. Yes, the car is smooth, the a/c works great, it has no rattles.
