This 1974 Mercedes-Benz 280SE is far and away the best W116 series car we have seen in the last 20 years. It is utterly immaculate and would take a concourse win without question. 

The owner has spent over $11k with all receipts and documentation on the engine alone. You could eat from the rocker covers, it really does belie belief. 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 receipts.
