Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 3.5 litre
Finnish (EU) registration
The Mercedes-Benz W111 Coupé range was complemented with a new top of the line 3.5 litre V8 engine in 1969, and the last cars were produced in July 1971.
As documented in the factory build card, this European matching numbers example was completed on 24. April 1970 and fitted with the desirable large electric sunroof and floor shift automatic transmission. First delivered in Würzburg Germany, it later found its way to Sweden (1987) and then to Finland in 1998.
The silver respray and new red leather interior were done in 1998-1999. The paintwork and the bumpers have a few blemishes but the interior still looks new, including the wood varnish. The present owner bought the car in 1999 and it has been dry stored and unused since.
Needs attention to power steering pump, paintwork, bumpers as well as some other details, but represents great value.
Drives, runs and shifts gears extremely well.
Documented 500 kms in the last 30 years.
A new and boxed Becker Mexico “Retro” radio with iPod/USB and navigation is available for purchase separately, would look perfect here.
