In terms of ‘Classic Mercedes-Benz’, the W111 Coupe is near the top. Rightfully so, as it is a product of Frenchman Paul Bracq who was also responsible for the Pagoda, 600, and even some other iconic cars at BMW, Citroën, and Peugeot. It’s as every bit as elegant and stunning as anything that rolled out of the factory in Crewe, England at rival Rolls-Royce/Bentely, and the build quality is on par with some international bank vaults. Even doing a quick Google search for “W111 Coupe” will have you lost in an array of stunning examples. However, I highly doubt a Google search will turn up this color combination. This 1966 up for sale in Florida is painted in Sandbeige Metallic over a green leather interior. Yes, green. Not that green that almost looks like black. No, this is Saint Patrick’s Day green.

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 GrÃ¶sser. 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 â€œwhere do you summer?â€ Iâ€™m more interested in â€œwhat do you summer in?â€ This 1967 Mercedes-Benz 250SE Cabriolet appears to be a perfect vehicle in which to holiday.
