This 1974 Mercedes-Benz 280SE is far the best W116 series car we have
seen in a long time. It is in immaculate condition and would be a serious
contender in any concourse.
The owner has spent over $11k with all receipts and documentation on the
engine alone, only having done 500kms since rebuild. You could eat from
the rocker covers. The exterior is nearly flawless and is finished in a
lovely period yellow. The interior follows suit with every switch and
dial looking and functioning as new. The air conditioning is very cold
and the gauges are as new.
The W116 series was a large step forward for Mercedes-Benz following the
discontinuation of the W108/09 chassis, it grew in size, luxury, safety
and performance. The 280 was the inline 6 cylinder petrol available and
was far more reliable than the very thirsty 4.5 & 6.9 counterparts.
As a result it saw fleet and taxi service around the world. It is not
uncommon to see them still getting around North Africa and Eastern Europe
with absolutely enormous mileages.
This example was quite highly specified for a 280 with air conditioning
power sunroof and alloy wheels. It retains it's original Becker stereo
and is completely as stock.
The 280 will come complete with an entire box of history and
