220SE Ponton Cabriolet

Only 28 right hand drive examples of the Mercedes 220SE Ponton Cabriolet were produced, this 1960 model has been restored to a level which will make it one of the finest models in existence.

This rare right hand drive 220SE Ponton Cabriolet was the subject of a two stage restoration as the bodywork had been attended to previously a few years back. The vehicle presented extremely well however it still needed trim work and a mechanical overhaul to bring it up to the next level.

We were instructed by the owner to carry out a full re-trim in Cream Leather, replace the soft top, re-veneer all wood trim and remove the engine to be able to treat and detail the engine bay.

The engine was completely overhauled as well as the suspension and various other issues were sorted so the vehicle was mechanically faultless.

Whilst the mechanical work was underway the engine bay was stripped back to bare metal from all corrosion, correctly prepared, primed and painted ready for the engine to be re-assembled, detailed to exact specifications and re-fitted.

Once all of our stage two restoration was complete the vehicle now proudly presents as a restored Mercedes 220SE Ponton Cabriolet in a fabulous colour combination.
