The Mercedes-Benz 220SE (chassis W128) was an automobile that was available in sedan, coupé, or cabriolet body styles. This particular model is the last of the "Ponton" series which had design roots and styling cues beginning in 1953 with the Mercedes-Benz 180 sedan (chassis W120).

At the time, the Cabriolet was priced similar to Cadillac's Eldorado Biarritz. The 220SE featured a unitized body/frame construction and fully independent suspension. All models were fitted with a 2.2 L straight 6 with aluminum head, overhead camshaft, and Bosch mechanical fuel injection. An automatic clutch was avaible with the column-mounted 4-speed manual transmission.

Nearly every interior surface of the coupé and cabriolet is covered in leather, and matching leather luggage was available.

Power steering, windows, air conditioning, and an automatic transmission were not available.
