•Registered in Sweden

A unique and well documented car with an interesting history, this Mercedes-Benz 220 SEb Cabriolet was sold new in Sweden to a textile company, Gefa AB, in Tranemo. They used the car until 1976 when it was bought by a devoted Mercedes-Benz enthusiast, Bertil Persson of Danderyd. At this change of ownership the car had covered some 67,000 kilometres. As the perfectionist he was, Mr Persson decided to restore the Mercedes to perfect condition, and in 1979 this 220SEb was acclaimed as one of the finest cabriolets in Sweden by the Daimler-Benz section of the Swedish 'Automobilhistoriska Klubben'.

Since the renovation in 1977 the Mercedes has only been used for shows and now has a documented 95,000 kilometres recorded. Finished in weissgrau with red leather interior, the latter retaining its original radio, this highly original car comes with plentiful documentation including its first registration document; Daimler-Benz data card; a copy of Daimler-Benz's original invoice to the Swedish importer, Philipsons; Swedish technical control documents dating back to 1972; and sundry photographs and other paperwork.

Ein wirklich interessanter Wagen mit einer einmaligen Geschichte: Dieses Mercedes-Benz 220 Seb Cabriolet wurde neu nach Schweden geliefert; erster Besitzer war ein Textilunternehmen, die Gefa AB, in Tranemo. Gefa sollte den Wagen bis 1976 behalten und verkaufte ihn dann an einen Mercedes-Benz Enthusiasten, Herrn Bertil Persson aus Danderyd. Bei dessen Kauf hatte der Wagen 67.000 km gelaufen. Als Perfektionist restaurierte Persson den Wagen umfangreich und 1979 wurde das Cabriolet als eines der schönsten Cabriolets in Schweden von der Sektion Mercedes-Benz des schwedischen 'Automobilhistoriska Klubben' erkoren.

Seit seiner Restaurierung im Jahre 1977 wurde der Wagen nur auf einigen Veranstaltungen benutzt und der belegte km-Stand liegt nun bei 95,000 km. Dieser in weißgrau lackierte, mit roter Lederausstattung und dem originalen Radio sehr originale Wagen wird mit umfangreicher Dokumentation angeboten: u.a. das erste Zulassungsdokument, die originale Datenkarte, eine Kopie der Originalrechnung von Mercedes-Benz an den schwedischen Importeur Philipsons, schwedische technischen Kontrollen, die bis zum Jahr 1972 zurückreichen, sowie weitere Fotos und Dokumente sind noch vorhanden.
