Bruce writes:  Here are several photos of my 220SE cabriolet.  It is in superb condition and recently completed a 1,950 mile trip with only a flat tire!  It is the original color combination, and yes, it has undergone a complete, factory specific restoration.  The only item that is not spec., is the radio, and I'm endeavoring to rectify that as well!

My 220SE cabriolet was purchased from the factory by a US Army officer who was stationed in Germany.  He drove the auto for the entire period he was stationed there and shipped it to the USA via the Holland-American Line when he retired in 1962.

I am the second proud owner.  An active Shriner, I drive her in most all the parades and my wife, Pat, and I take her out for pleasure rides in the Texas hill country frequently.
