Classic Car For Sale – Car Of The Day – 1958 Mercedes-Benz 220S Cabriolet

by Mike –

Here is my pick for the classic car for sale today that I would like to own. This Mercedes-Benz 220S Cabriolet looks like a car that could have been driven by Grace Kelly and Cary Grant along the coast of Southern France instead of a Sunbeam Alpine Roadster. It is in the same class as a Lancia Aurelia B24S but at a much lower price.

These cars are not fast but they sure do have style. This would be a great car to drive around Carmel and Monterey and take down the coast to Big Sur. One must buy it first, of course, and then drive it to Big Sur and back.

This Mercedes-Benz 220S Cabriolet is for sale at the Mecum auction on August 15-17, 2013 in Monterey, California. The estimate is $120,000 – $150,000.


Mecum is a little skimpy on the history of this car but it sure looks good. The color combination is great, in my opinion, and the price range is reasonable if the condition holds up to an in person inspection.

Every time Monterey Car Week comes around I find a new model that I would love to own and this is it this year, at least so far.

    With the raised, swooping rear sculpted side fenders, those tailights, and the long front hood, and the rearend treatment, if it did not have a tristar emblem on the front and back, you would swear that this was a Rolls Royce Corniche convertible from the early or mid-sixties. I think that I have read about this Mercedes model in Hemmings Sports and Exotic Cars, but I know for a fact I have never seen one in person in my life. It is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing. Glenn in the Bronx, NY.
