For sale on behalf of a customer. 280S 1972 thought to be three owner
vehicle, has original delivery sheet and extensive service history showing
187000 miles. Rare Aqua Blue (code 917) with Navy blue MB tex
Best described as a "survivor" example. Not perfect, but an excellent
unrestored example that looks plenty good enough to be enjoyed as
is. Body is excellent with no rust in the usual places with the
exception of the panel under the spare wheel which has a poor quality
(but effective) repair. Hanging panels are good with the exception of an
odd rust hole on the inside of two doors, we suspect blocked drains and a
frequently washed car. There is also a poor previous repair on the top of
the r/h/f guard.
No cracks in the dash and the timber is generally in very good condition
with the exception of the drivers door, which as always is the first one
to suffer. Top of back seat and the parcel shelve carpet is fine, but the
trim under the rear window has come away and would need to be reglued.
There is a small tear in the drivers seat where at a guess a previous
owner has got into it with something in his/her back pocket.
Has been off the road for the last 5 years and has been recommissioned by
us. Fuel system clean out, rear brakes, waterpump, new battery,
etc. We have also polished the chrome since these pictures were
