Up for sale. please find this ULTRA-RARE. ORIGINAL. rust-free. low-mileage 1964 Mercedes-Benz 220SEb.  This is one of the ONLY 220SE's in the US. equipped with Factory Fuel Injection. Full documentation and manuals since point of purchase. and service records from Mercedes Benz of Hollywood. California. and Auto Stiegler Mercedes Benz. Sale includes THOUSANDS of dollars worth of maintenance manuals. factory brochures. and advertising materials.
Personally imported by it's original owner. this car lived it's entire life in Southern California. All sales documents are there. and in German.  Numerous brochures and original shop manuals accompany the car at point of sale.  It is truly rust-free.  Lovingly maintained and cared for by the same owner until 6 months ago. when old age (91!) forced the sale of the car. In storage since. and started twice weekly. The red vinyl interior is exceptional. with but a few very minor blemishes.  Drivers carpeting needs replacement. The chrome and glass are very good overall.  needing only minor attention. One repaint. The "Import" headlamps were installed at the factory in Germany. All motor and drivetrain are factory original equipment. with the top end of the motor rebuilt at 100k miles.
The car runs. drives. steers. and stops as it should. and cruises very comfortably at freeway speeds.  This car can be enjoyed as-is. or very easily brought to show and go level without bank-breaking investment.  It gets a lot of attention from knowledgable folks. and people of good taste.  
 Other than it's point of purchase in Germany. this car has lived ALL of it's Rust-Free Life (See Underside Photos!!) in Southern California.  It bears a Clean California Title. and it's original California Black Plates. which come with the car.
The first Fintails wore familiar 220. 220S. and 220SE badging. (The E stood for Einspritzung--fuel injection--while S signified the top-level models. ) a carryover 2. 2-liter in-line six (105 hp to 134 hp). they used much of the same chassis technology as their forebears. the Ponton-series 220s. Numerous revisions. however. including relocating the front dampers farther outboard and swiping the 300SL's transverse coil spring for the swing-axle rear. gave the Fintails groundbreaking handling abilities on par with some of the world's better sports cars.
The Fintails' importance to Mercedes-Benz cannot be overstated. They were the first in a long line of supremely capable Mercedes sedans--a tradition that continues today--and they're even more notable for their emphasis on safety at a time when occupant welfare generally wasn't a high priority. The Fintails were the first Mercedes-Benzes to have been extensively crash-tested. and they also incorporated front and rear crumple zones. The steering wheel and dash top were padded. the windshield was designed to pop out if struck from the inside. the rearview mirror was breakaway. and all switches were made from flexible materials. Even the widely panned vertical speedometer was believed to be safer; contemporary safety experts felt that the design heightened a driver's feeling of danger as the needle rose toward the top. Scoffed at as a ploy to appeal to Americans (which it was). the befinned sheetmetal now seems retro-nerdy cool. Fintails are fun to drive. the sixes love to play at the top end of the tach--so look for a manual--and the entire car was built to last. And they're affordable. In top-notch condition. the priciest examples (early 220SEs) command $20. 00 to $25. 00.
This car is for sale locally. and we reserve the right to end this auction at any time.  We welcome your inspection in Los Angeles.  
Thanks for Looking!    Pete

Hi, is this still for sale? If not, do you have something similar?

from Dr. Robert Terrance , dated 15 november 2018
If you would please, I'd like to know your asking price for this Mercedes? Yes, I am interested, but may not be able to afford it.
You see, years ago, before inflation caught hold of our economy and made some items simply out of reach for me, I owned two of these W111 Benzes. I am a disabled senior citizen living on a fixed income, but I am quite able to drive and take good care of cars I love. I would love to own this model before I become too old to enjoy it.
Thank You, Dr. Robert T. Mullane III
