The Mercedes-Benz model range exploded in the 1960's with the introduction of the 108 series 250 with new, modern body styling. Initially carbureted in the 250S, the 1965 introduction of the 250SE brought Bosch mechanical fuel injection to the Mercedes-Benz middle market range with a 2.5 liter single overhead camshaft six-cylinder engine rated at 150hp (DIN) and 170hp (SAE). Four wheel independent suspension assured superior handling and Mercedes-Benz extended its famed quality of materials, workmanship and assembly from its luxury models into the middle range. This 1965 Mercedes-Benz 250SE Coupe is a prime example. Not only is it in excellent condition it is largely original with a high quality older repaint and renewed upholstery. The bodywork and panel fits are exceptional, showing the quality which is expected in every Mercedes-Benz product. It is equipped with a white steering wheel, Becker Brescia TR radio, automatic transmission with column shift, bucket front seats with a storage console between them, sliding power sunroof, hubcaps, trim rings, whitewall tires, power steering, and power brakes. The dashboard wood trim has been redone to unusually high quality standards. The engine compartment is clean and unrestored. Finished in ivory with red leather upholstery and red carpets, it is a clean, solid and impressively maintained automobile with an excellent, straight body and even, flush fits. These mid-60's Mercedes-Benz models are the basis of much of the marque's reputation for quality which continues to today and this 1967 250SE Coupe illustrates why that is so.
