1964 MERCEDES CABRIOLET DRIVES GARTH’S GENTLEMAN’S AUCTION
COLUMBUS, OHIO –
At Garth’s December 12-13 Gentleman’s Auction, a car fit for a gentleman (or woman) was the top lot when a rare 1964 Mercedes Benz two-door cabriolet sold at $51,600. Only 2,729 of these 220SEb cabriolets were made between 1961 and 1965, when production ended. This one, odometer reading 92,494 miles, is a six-cylinder, with a 2,195cc/134hp engine and a four-speed manual transmission. Finished in black with red interior, the body is solid with good chrome work and appears to be original. The car has its original Becker radio together with the original handbook and a purchase receipt from 1965. For information, www.auctions.garths.com or 740-362-4771.
