The Mercedes 250 CE (W114.022) as offered by Classic Park is optically and technically in excellent condition. About 10 years ago, the car was completely restored. The car is sanded to the metal and again provided with various varnishes. No wonder the 250 CE still has a brilliant colour. The engine was also revised. The car was part of a collection and is hardly used in the past few years. The car is still driving and steering perfectly. Extensive photo reports are available from both the restoration and the revision of the engine.
In 1968 the W110, the ‘Fintail’ or ‘Heckflosse’, was followed by the W114/115 series. These models were positioned as midsize sedan under the luxurious S class. The W115 involved the 4-cylinder models like the 200, 220, 230 and 240. The W114 models had a 6-cylinder engine, supplied as 230, 250 and 280.
The W114/115 is designed by Frenchman Paul Bracq, chief designer at Mercedes-Benz for the models from 1957 to 1967.
Mercedes introduced a coupé variant of the W114 in 1969, featuring a longer boot hood and available with either a 2.5 or 2.8 litre six-cylinder engine. In 1969 Mercedes-Benz introduced the Bosch D-jetronic fully electronic fuel injection system into the 250CE. This was the first ever production Mercedes-Benz to use this system.
A nice design detail is that there is no B-pillar. The pillarless design allowed all the windows to be lowered completely for open air motoring.
Only 67,048 coupés were manufactured from 1969 to 1976 (vs. 1.852,008 saloons).
