This 1977 Mercedes-Benz 280SE is true vintage luxury cruising.
After all, it's a proper full-size European sedan with
fuel-injected power, a loaded interior, and the crisp look of
The mocha brown paint on this sedan is timeless. After all, it's
the factory correct color that was popular when new, and Mercedes
would charge you thousands $$$$ now just to get a sophisticated hue
with a nice luster like this today. These were a well-done total
package with just the right amount of bright accenting on the
grille, around the windows, and a tasteful line that almost
encircles the center of the car. Even the wheel covers match the
paint and brightwork theme. And all of this remains looking so
nicely today thanks to the right investments and good maintenance.
And of course, Mercedes famously over-built these cars from the
beginning. So over four decades later, and the doors still close
with the sound and feeling of German precision.
The interior is just as nicely presented as the exterior. And it
also keeps its proper period-correct look with plenty of
coordinating shades of tan and brown. As you look over the full
package, you really see a great vintage sedan, right down to the
desirable Becker Europa AM/FM radio that's still working. And
because Mercedes was always at the forefront of technology, a
vintage example still comes with a ton of features you want in a
modern car. This includes power windows, cruise control, power
steering, sunroof, and provisions for upgraded R134a air
conditioning (will need servicing to blow cold). It's this kind of
desirability that makes it easy to share this Mercedes with family
and friends. And its full-size interior means they will all have
the room to appreciate vintage luxury, too.
Lift the hood and see the 2.8-liter straight-six motor. These are
hardy powerplants, and when combined with fuel injection, you get
one of the best vintage car experiences around. The advanced dual
overhead cam setup makes for great low-end power and this one
smoothly and swiftly brings you up to speed. The transmission is a
smooth-shifting automatic, and the suspension is fully independent
with a disc brakes at all four corners. All of this gives the 280SE
the reputation for being both sporty and a high-end luxury car.
Complete with owner's manual, this is true vintage luxury and
elegance. So when upper-class distinction is offered for
economy-minded pricing, you need to hurry on this deal. Call
