For Sale: 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280S in Cadillac, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1969 Mercedes 280S Classic is a 4 door sedan that is partially restored, powered by a 2.8L M130 inline-six and column-shift manual transmission. She is being sold by the 2nd owner of the car who purchased the car in Bremen, Germany. The car was shipped to Canada in 1980 to add to his collection and this year was imported to the United States with a current legal title in the United States, in Michigan. Since the 1980's the car has only been driven on some weekends and has slept most of its life in a storage garage waiting to be taken out. She has the original paint and cool black leather interior with all parts still original. The car is very clean, and is a nice car for its 50 year age! The red / burgundy paintwork is thought to be original and shows a nice shine for its age. The wheel rims are "Bundt" style. This forged light alloy aluminum was debuted as a Mercedes-Benz option in the summer of 1969 for stronger high speed performance to improve on the old style hubcaps. These same rims were also used manufactured for the Porsche 911 that proved its performance. This year the wheel rims were surface sanded and refinished to like new condition. The 14 inch tires on this car are in good condition with lots of tread for good safety. Underhood sits a 2.8L M130 inline-six engine that is in restored condition and has been professionally cleaned. The car today runs and drives well. This car will drive like a new vehicle of its era should and could easily be used for long tours. This year the owner did annual maintenance and replaced the following mechanical components to restore the car to good running and show condition. This cost spent was $2,000 U.S and included: New battery, oil filter/oil change, brake fluid, new fuel hose/lines & fittings, brake cylinder, calipers, lines, hoses & pads, ignition coil restored, new fuel injection pump, new spark plugs, spark plug wires and rotor, and new front subframe bushings. A plug in for winter starting.
